RA Poll – Top albums of 2011 : Nicolas Jaar’s Space Is Only Noise hits #1
I made most of Space Is Only Noise at 5 PM, right after I came home from school, probably the most boring time of the day. I made most of the stuff during the summer, when I had nothing to do all day. Just having a nice meal in the morning, maybe reading a nice book and then making some music. It’s music that I made from the ages from 17 – 20, so it spans a lot of different time. It wasn’t like I sat down for two months and wrote it: it was a three year process.
For a while I thought I was going to write my thesis on Henri Bergson, the French philosopher, because I really fell in love with his ideas of time. So I curated the album with those thoughts in mind. But then the album became way too ethereal and I was not OK with that. I wanted it to be grounded in something much dirtier and more disgusting. I wanted it to have something bad inside of it, maybe something evil. When I made the track “Space Is Only Noise If You Can See” the album became more complete. I knew that it needed something like that.
I had a deadline with Circus Company of a Thursday, I think, and on that Wednesday night I wrote “Balance Her In Between Your Eyes,” which is one of my favorite songs off the album. I wrote it with my computer speakers because my other speakers weren’t working. But I guess what I realized this year is that the writing of the album wasn’t the writing of the songs. It was the three months I took to turn it into some sort of weird bastard DJ set of the songs I really like. That’s something I realized lately more than ever: Just how much of a DJ set I actually saw it as.

Paris house music scene in The Guardian
Tony Naylor (The Guardian) gives his feeling about the Paris house scene:
Has house music met its Paris match?
The French capital has produced an array of eccentric talent that is coming at the dancefloor at a tangent. Far be it from the Guardian Music blog to succumb to hype, much less reinforce lazy national stereotypes, but, undeniably, something is stirring in Paris. Something which, after the brash, filtered robo-house of Daft Punk and the juggernaut electro of Justice, is bringing a certain Gallic sophistication, a certain restraint and eccentricity, to French club music.
