REC'D: Nicolas Jaar - "Don't Break My Love"

Nicolas Jaar

21-year-old Nicolas Jaar has clearly taken advantage of his eight months off since the release of the awesome Space Is Only Noise earlier this year – he dropped a short EP yesterday called Don’t Break My Love.

Don’t shrug off this release as Jaar’s castoffs – based on its title track, he’s effortlessly continuing his game-changing foray into minimalist electro. “Don’t Break My Love,” with its dizzying, explosive echoes and slow, intoxicating build into an incredible climax. It’s an incredibly simple song when you take it at surface value, but check this one out in headphones – Jaar doesn’t let your attention waver for a second, even with such minimal instrumentation. Look out for this guy.
