After sharing an alternate soundtrack for Sergei Parajanov’s iconic 1969 film “The Color Of Pomegranates” just a few days ago, Nicolas Jaar is already back with this wicked remix of “What Kind Of Man”, the first single from Florence and the Machine’s new album “How Big How Blue How Beautiful” (due on June 1st via Island).

Nicolas Jaar’s Other People label continues its solid, quality releases with a brand-new compilation entitled “Work”. Our first taste of that forthcoming record is “A Pixel”, a perfectly crafted track from Visuals, the electronic pop project from Berlin-via-New York producer Andrew Fox.
