French-Chilean-American artist, Nicolas Jaar, has enjoyed a meteoric rise to notoriety as a rare and gifted multi-genre artist. He released his debut album, Space Is Only Noise, in January 2011 to critical acclaim; it received a score of 8.4 and the title of Best New Music from Pitchfork and four stars from The Guardian. It was ranked #1 album of the year by Resident Advisor, Mixmag, and Crack Mag. Well-versed in several acoustical instruments (piano, saxophone, vocals), Jaar is not considered a DJ, but rather a live performance artist, and he brings a strong yet spontaneous melodic sensibility to his work that is equally as distinct, as it is deeply moving.
