Chilean electronic artist and producer Nicolas Jaar launches mysterious radio network and announces tour stop in Vancouver.

New York City-based electronic artist Nicolas Jaar released his debut album, Space Is Only Noise, in 2011 and has since received extensive critical praise. He plays Vancouver’s Commodore Theatre this fall.

Jaar has contributed to BBC Radio 1’s prestigious “Essential Mix” series, winning “Essential Mix of the Year” in 2012, and has performed alongside friend and collaborator Dave Harrington in Darkside. Jaar is founder of the Other People imprint, which has put out releases by a diverse group of artists ranging from Lydia Lunch to DJ Slugo. He recently launched his ambitious new online project, The Network, a radio network of sorts that features various channels and plays mysterious noises and songs.

The site is just one page and users are asked to access a channel by typing in a number between 0 and 333. Numbers that are not multiples of three are rounded up to the nearest multiple. In a statement, Jaar writes that his label, Other People, will no longer service weekly releases. Instead it will “concentrate on a much smaller batch of yearly releases starting in 2017.”
