Nicolas Jaar Live for London Electronic

After the sellout March event earlier this year, Nicolas Jaar returns exclusively for London Electronic on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th July in EC1

Since releasing his critically acclaimed debut artist album in February 2011, Nicolas Jaar has become an underground phenomenon and cult hero single handedly reprogramming the face of electronic music. All of which is not so remarkable until you learn he is a 21 year old still studying at university.

A new band format for his live shows was introduced this year and only performed in the UK at fabric to date. With festivals such as Glastonbury and Sonar on the horizon before then, this will be the only chance to catch him perform in London for the year. These exclusive two mid week dates from London Electronic utilize London’s most infamous nightlife venue in a new mid week format showcasing its world-class soundsystem and bringing electronic music into a new live setting.

The live band format features Ian Sims on drums, Will Epstein on saxophone and keys, Dave Harrington on guitar / electronics and Nicolas Jaar himself on piano, vocals and electronics.

A saxophonist for twelve years, Will Epstein met Nicolas in their teenage years and they began to play music together in high school. “We played on the street, in bands, in dark basements, and started to learn to listen, Endless hours dripped away and the sound wrapped around us,” said Will of their early times. Epstein also attends Brown University with Jaar and formed the band Spank City, alongside other members Ian Sims and Dave Harrington while there.

London Electronic is an opportunity to experience the curious world of Nicolas Jaar as he continues to conquer the fragile space that lives within the heart, body and spirit of music.
