Nicolas Jaar made an amazing/sprawling, 66-minute mix — "a strange and lovely bricolage" — for Resident Advisor, to commemorate the venerable electronic music site's 500th podcast. Recorded in December 2015, in Brooklyn, New York, and featuring Talk Talk, Terry Riley, a couple of Jaar's own tracks + more. Via Nico's Other People label:


2+0+1+6 : 9

9 is a magic number.
Don't turn it around.
Don't turn anything around.
See things as they are.

Nico made a mix for a website.
It's about last year.
And how everything turned around.
