Nicolas Jaar

#sxsw #NicolasJaar


Nico has spent his youth wandering. The Chilean-American artist was born in New York, but raised between Santiago and SoHo. At seventeen, he began releasing music on the Brooklyn imprint Wolf + Lamb, and was catapulted into the Atlantic dance music scene. But he always wanted to slow down and grow roots as an artist. Instead of finding a creative home, Nico decided to make his own. On his nineteenth birthday, he founded Clown & Sunset. The label extended his collaboration with Soul and Nikita, and became an outlet for his most honest work. Over the last two years, Nico has composed for the Sunset of a Clown series,Russian Dolls, WOUH and Inès and DARKSIDE. He has completed his first album, Space is Only Noise, and finally returned home. From New York City, Nico will reveal his latest work, Don’t Break My Love, and choreograph Clown & Sunset.
