3 2010: RA.211

Ever the most hardcore Jaar fans have likely not heard a mix like this before. Jaar's first mix for RA (the second came in 2015) is a divine bricolage of modern music weaved with snippets of the past. The hip-hop heavy hour-long number eases through music from J Dilla, Mobb Deep, Aphex Twin, Marvin Gaye, Ricardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler, LCD Soundsystem, Glass Candy and even an a capella version of Notorious B.I.G's 'Juicy' with the stunning vocals of soviet starlet Alla Pugasheva layered overtop. The mix is fully engrossing and you'll have it on repeat time and time again. But to do that you'll need to download it.

4 2010: Beats In Space

This mix enchants you from the first track. It starts off with Jaar’s own remix of ‘Winter Rose’ by The Bees and continues on with plenty of hip-hop instrumentals and heavy doses of The Alchemist before finishing off with Iva Gocheva. There are four parts to the mix, which is broken up by dialogue between the show’s host Tim Sweeney and Nicolaas Jaar. Download the magic here.
