New from Nico Jaar – “Can’t See What Is Burning There”

April 13, 2011

Serious new groove from Nico Jaar via Wolf + Lamb‘s DJ Kicks mixtape just when I’d been completely pre-occupied with Visionquest and Crosstown Rebels releases.

Busting open the doors of perception with Nico Jaar

How how how how did I miss this release last year. Impossibly young Nicolas Jaar and impossibly younger Soul Keita collaborated on a 3-track EP released via Clown and Sunset. Caveman house might be an appropriate moniker for Jaar and Keita’s collaboritive work, but that would only address one dimension of some clearly well thought out compositions. Dance music in it’s most organic form rather, whisperings of Nick Cave never far away. One final thought, I’m beginning to wonder if Soul Keita is a figment of Jaar’s imagination.
