Nicolas Jaar has put together a new mix to honor Resident Advisor’s 500th podcast. The 66-minute mix, a “strange and lovely bricolage”, is about last year and how everything turned around. In his own words: “Mix was recorded in December 2015, in Brooklyn, New York. Picture is from those new machines at passport control at JFK. Ask a friend to translate the Khalife track for you.” Download Jaar’s special mix here.
