I’m still regularly listening to Nicolas Jaar’s wonderful Essential Mix from 2012. And now he’s offered up another album-length free mix, Our World. Released as a tribute to John Lennon, coinciding with the anniversary of his death (33 years ago this year) the hour-long mix begins with Lennon interview clips before moving, somewhat stealthily, through genres, splicing in other spoken word moments, hints of The Beatles and eventually arriving, through scattering trance and dance clattering-clangings at the ambient/neo-classical threads that Jaar has worked into his own albums, his work with Darkside and his other mix offerings. And then to close out we hear Lennon’s Oh My Love.
Did I mention it was free to stream/download. So check it out now. That Jaar’s a clever chap
