Update: This originally appeared in May but Jaar has posted the non-BBC version so there’s no interruptions from Pete Tong. Plus, it’s another reminder to listen.

Nicolas Jaar kicks off his two hour mix with a snippet of audio from Angelo Badalamenti about working on the Twin Peaks soundtrack. That eerie creepiness that pervades the show works its way in the mix with snatches of the soundtrack of There Will Be Blood, Jay-Z, thumping techno beats, minimal piano edits, Aphex Twin, a couple of tracks from his Clown and Sunset label, neo-classical nods, some Beyoncé, Marvin Gaye and um.. NSYNC.
