Track Tuesday: Nicolas Jaar – Fight
Nicolas Jaar had not released a solo effort since 2011 until earlier this year, but it seems the sudden end of his Darkside band heralded a new rush of creativity from the young composer. We are more than happy to reap the rewards. This latest effort on R&S records sees Jaar at his best- nine whirling minutes of experimentation with lush soundscapes and leftfield sounds over a not-so-steady beat, a crescendo that pushes us into a surprisingly forceful second half where the song’s namesake can really be felt. Jaar’s constant exploration of sound has been an inspiration for many- a comforting nod that it’s OK to push ourselves a bit farther into the unknown- and so we hope this flurry of activity continues!
