Nicolas Jaar Live at The Arches-Glasgow: Ticket Giveaway
Nicolas Jaar - Variations by CircusCompany
Nicolas Jaar seems to be one of those unavoidable buzz names at the moment. Creating a hype he can entirely stand up to and falling into the same absurdly hip group of visionaries as Soul Clap, Art Department and Wolf + Lamb, his music straddles a hazy blend of low-slung Deep House, Disco & RnB but infused with a late night funk which puts it in a category all of it's own. Truth be told, all these genre labels are on the whole pointless as he carves out a path which is unequivocally his.
Still only 21 and mentored by the previously mention Wolf + Lamb it’s no surprise that he is perhaps one of the hottest names in electronic music right now, his experimental sound reaching an almost cult status amongst the laptop generation of producers and music bloggers. While he has been rather predictably compared to the spacious sonics of James Blake and Mount Kimbie, there is a overwhelming allure to his music which is perhaps even more involved than his aforementioned comparisons.
Recently packing out both Fabric and Berlin’s Bar 25 with his critically acclaimed live show, Jaar is now headed in the direction of Glasgow and our beloved Arches. Supported by his own label signing Valentin Stip as well an afterparty featuring the Highlife DJ’s, this will undoubtedly be an unforgettable night.
Listen to tracks from the album ‘Space Is Only Noise’ below and read on for our competition:
