Darkside is the project of dance music prodigy Nicolas Jaar and guitar maestro Dave Harrington, this is the mix that Dave Harrington did for Modular and it goes from a cover of Nick Drake to his own exclusive The Knife edit. A perfect companion to a slow friday at the office.

“…Dave Harrington is well versed in the art of orchestrating arresting soundtracks. Switching from a mournful Nick Drake cover to classical inspired house within the opening minutes, the Darkside member applies his performing musician principles to DJing with this captivating Modcast that pulls you in instantly.”

The latest record from Nicolas Jaar’s subscription record service, Other People, is the debut from High Water. Written and performed by Will Epstein, an old co-conspirator from Jaar’s shamanic live shows, this EP is an an off-kilter collage where each track is as unpredictable as it is charming. A smart and gorgeous first release that deserves to be heard in full.
