Q: How does Jaar describe his music?

A: Jaar has described his songs as being ruminative and emotional, and thus classifies his music in the "blue-wave" genre. He gets his inspiration from fellow Chilean Ricardo Villalobos and minimal techno. The majority of Jaar's songs are set at 100 BPM or lower, much lower than the techno/house standards of 120-130 BPM. "I'm going to keep taking the beats even slower," he said in an interview with Resident Advisor. "More unintentional things happen between the beats."

The Singer

Chilean musician Nicolas Jaar has found fame in the United States. He majored in comparative literature at Brown University in Rhode Island. Additionally, Jaar is the owner and founder of his own record label and art house Clown & Sunset. He was born in New York City on January 10, 1990 to Alfredo Jaar and Evelyne Maynard. He spent the majority of his early childhood in Santiago de Chile, the birthplace of his father, Alfredo Jaar, who is an artist and filmmaker. He and his family stayed in Chile for six years before they finally moved back to New York. Jaar was bitten by the music bug after his father bought him several copies of Ricardo Villalobos' Thé au Harem d'Archimède and Luomo's Vocal City.

Later on, Jaar befriended Soul Keita and Nikita Quasim on a school trip through the Sonora desert in Mexico. The three bonded over their love of music, and started swapping beats and projects online. In 2009, Jaar launched Clown & Sunset as a way to legitimize their music.

On May 18, 2012 Nicolas Jaar made his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix debut, which was named "Radio 1's Essential Mix Of The Year 2012."

The Experience

Nicolas Jaar has been called one of the least predictable and most experimental dance music producers of the late 2000s and early 2010s. He routinely performs his classic beats at spots throughout the nation and the world. His shows leave audiences at the edge of their seats, and is one of the most popular musicians from the Big Apple. He continues to release innovative records to this day.

Hit Albums

Jaar released his debut album Space Is Only Noise in January 2011 to critical acclaim, garnering a score of 8.4 and the title of "Best New Music" from Pitchfork and four stars from The Guardian. The disc was ranked #1 album of the year by Resident Advisor, Mixmag, Crack Mag, #2 by DJ Mag, and #20 by Pitchfork. His track "Don't Break My Love" also scored the title of "Best New Music" by Pitchfork in late 2011. Pitchfork additionally placed the song "Space Is Only Noise if You Can See" at number 44 on its list "The Top 100 Tracks of 2011." Jaar toured in support of the album with a full band, blending sounds from his laptop with a guitarist, drummer, and saxophonist. Resident Advisor awarded them the #1 spot on their "Top Live Act 2012" list.
