One of the most important and in-demand musicians in the electronic music world today, Jaar refers to his ruminative and emotional musical style as ‘blue-wave’, drawing inspiration from fellow-Chilean Ricardo Villalobos and minimal techno.
Most of Jaar’s groundbreaking compositions reside at 100 BPM or lower, far lower than the techno/house standards of 120-130 BPM. “I’m going to keep taking the beats even slower,” he says in an interview with Resident Advisor,the dance and electronic music magazine. “More unintentional things happen between the beats.”
Jaar released his debut album, Space Is Only Noise in January 2011 to critical acclaim, receiving a score of 8.4 “Best New Music” from Pitchfork and four stars from The Guardian. It was ranked #1 album of the year by Resident Advisor, Mixmag, Crack Mag, #2 by DJ Mag and #20 by Pitchfork. His track “Don’t Break My Love” also received Best New Music by Pitchfork in late 2011.
