Stream Nicolas Jaar's fantastic John Lennon tribute mix

Nicolas Jaar turns the John Lennon catalogue inside out on a new mix. 

Yesterday marked the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon’s murder at the hands of Mark Chapman. Jaar has noted the occasion with a new mix in Lennon’s honour, titled ‘Our World’.

Jaar’s mix certainly isn’t a conventional tribute session – instead, he uses processed fragments of classic Lennon material (‘Imagine’ included), news reports, and assorted Jaar productions to build a trippy, oneiric hour. Click below to listen/download (and you really should, it’s ace).

Jaar has recently been dedicating himself to his Darkside project, who dropped the prog-minded Psychic LP in October. He’s also recently become commander-in-chief of a new label, Other People

Earlier this year, Lennon’s childhood home sold at auction for £480,000. The three-bedroom terrace house on Newcastle Road was expected to go for between £150,000 and £250,000, but the final price doubled expectations, with an anonymous American filing the winning bid.
