Often enough house music is too formulaic and predictable. Not so with Nicolas Jaar, and for that reason alone he is worth listening to. Mr. Jaar isn’t afraid to push the envelope and infuse his style of house music with various world influences. John the Revelator isn’t for the typical house music purist, whatever the hell that means. But it is for anyone who doesn’t like their music pre-packaged and over processed. So, light a candle, have a glass of whatever elixir suits your fancy, and simply chill. Also, check out Nicolas Jaar’s label Clown & Sunset on Facebook for more exemplar musical fare. Peace.
