Azari & III "Into the Night (Nicolas Jaar Remix)"
A few weeks back, we premiered the video for "Into the Night" from Toronto's Azari & III, and now we've got our hands on a remix of the song from New York prodigy Nicolas Jaar (pictured above). Jaar strips down the glammed-out house and funk of the original tune (which you can download over at Pitchfork) in favor of a more sparse and dark creation lead by moody piano chords. He also expands the track to almost double its original length, playfully building up and breaking down the elements a few times, never letting it fully hit for too long. As far as dance music goes, it's a remarkably rewarding exercise in patience and one we're happy to undertake. The remix and original track will be available as part of the Into the Night EP on November 22. Fans of Jaar should also take note that his debut full-length will be dropping on his own Clown and Sunset imprint in early 2011.
