last record store day,
nicolas jaar released an exclusive 12″ that sold-out instantly of two remixes: one featuring brian eno, and the other featuring grizzly bear. not many people have the courage to handle remixing those two artists’ style of music but nicolas jaar collectively creates a haunting release garnering his taste for the dark, epic, and obscure.


the two tracks almost lead into one another like a story…

starting with side a:

brian eno‘s lux reworking into quiet light ambience.

and then side b:

grizzly bear‘s sleeping ute turning into pure magic

as it beautifully intensifies around the three minute mark.

enjoy a free download of the mp3:

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
