Nicholas Jaar – Space Is Only Noise (2011)

Space Is Only Noise is one of my favourite chilled out, down tempo, ambient kinda records. I’ve heard this described as deep house, and whilst I see where the bridges are built, I wouldn’t have ever classed it as such. 

Being a genre Nazi aside, this is such a relaxing record. The sampling is on point, and with headphones the stereo stage is massively utilised to its full capacity. It is at once all encompassing, like some super strength opiate, yet also uplifting and cleansing. Also, the title track is fucking catchy as hell.
