Watch This: Nicolas Jaar takes over Boiler Room NYC
What do we know about Nicolas Jaar? He was born in New York, lived in Chile, studied comparative literature at Brown, he’s the label owner of Clown & Sunset and, oh yeah, he won Radio 1’s Essential Mix of the Year in 2012. While he’s earned recognition in Europe for his masterful album and famed performance from Barcelona’s Sonar Festival, the American music scene is slowly catching on.
The Red Bull Music Academy hosted Jaar and his Clown & Sunset label two months back for Jaar’s Boiler Room debut, and the results were stunning. Jaar’s headlining set included tantalizing deep house and minimal, while he creatively tinkered around with a MIDI controller and stereo radio. Watch the 45 minute set above.
