Video: DARKSIDE – “A1”

The opener of DARKSIDE’s wonderful EP got a video this week that looks like what your weird friends think they’re doing when they go out to the desert. It follows three apocalyptic monks on a quest to find things that shine in a way that works well with Nicolas Jaar’s eerily propellant and open “A1” […]


Shlohmo – “Rained The Whole Time” (Nicolas Jaar)

Shlohmo -

At this point, anything Nicolas Jaar touches will turn to gold for us. The young producer is quickly climbing to the top of our favorites in electronic music with a quickly growing catalog of 100% quality music.

The Staff Picks of 2011

You should have seen the deliberation room after we finished the lists.  Papers scattered across the floor, blood and coffee stains on the carpet, I think at one point Kenny threw his laptop at Stuart (it just barely missed).  But it makes sense, because each one of us are so passionate about the music we […]

Nicolas Jaar released one of 2011’s most promising albums at the ripe age of twenty-one, a university student born just at the start of the musically in vogue 90s. Now, respect your elders, but it is always inspiring to see someone younger than you accomplish success in their field you’ve only fathomed. If processed the […]
