He has been voted the no. 1 live act in the Resident Advisor polls and
has also appeared in Rough Trade’s end of year chart for the 2nd biggest
album of 2011 as well as appearing no. 4 in Mojo's electronic albums of
the year. We have had his album on repeat since it was released and are
looking forward to an evening of all things electronic.
It has been a truly outstanding few years for the youngster who is still
only 21 years, though much further advanced in terms of artistry and
wisdom. He has performed his live show at Nuits Sonores, Sonar,
Glastonbury, Roskilde, Body & Soul, Montreux Jazz Festival, and Melt
as well as an abundance of European festivals. What sees Jaar’s star
rising even further is his own label Clown & Sunset, which has
prospered and placed itself as a treasure trove of young and gifted
artists from far-flung corners of the globe.
Sunday August 5th will be a showcase for Clown & Sunset - a music
company and outlet for Jaar’s most intimate work as well as the debut of
some of the more innovative multimedia works that will be released
through Clown & Sunset’s parent company, CS Aesthetics (CSA). Since
completing his debut album, Nico has devoted himself entirely to
developing Clown & Sunset, bringing on the likes of Acid Pauli and
Valentin Snip as he cultivates his down-tempo, dark carnival aesthetic.
As Nicolas Jaar continues to dominate the charts for 2012, this event is
a set to be a shining light in the otherwise dark and cold summer we
have been enduring.
