Full tracklist after the jump:
Literally everyone loved Nicolas Jaar's amazing, 2-hour Essential Mix for BBC that dropped back in May -- and rightfully so, as it's one of the most beautiful, adventurous mixes of 2012 -- and now the producer has generously uploaded the uninterrupted, BBC-free version to his label's soundcloud page...
Amazing new 2-hour mix by Nico Jaar for BBC Radio 1. Check the adventurous tracklist -- featuring Jay-Z, Aphex Twin, Marvin Gaye, Just Friends (Jaar and Sasha Spielberg), My Girl and Me (probably Jaar), *NSYNC, a number of Jaar-related tracks and edits, and much more -- after the jump. Highly recommended Saturday morning listening. According to Jaar:
"I've watched Jurassic Park twice in my life - once when I was six and the second time a couple of weeks ago. It inspired me to think about how gaps in time change our way of perceiving."
