I actually don't have much experience with blogging at all but since I've been terribly sick and had to stay at home for 2 and a half weeks I really got into it. I found some incredibly cute blogs and decided that I want to share some beautiful music and new fashion and my experiences around the world with anyone who is interested in reading this.

I have to admit the fancy name of my blog is not my own creation. It's a the title of a song by Nicolas Jaar. One of my very very favourite artists. His music is incredibly intelligent, different, intense and I loved all of his tracks from the very first second. I found him coincidentally while spending a rainy day at home in my bed. I'm going to write my Research work in music about him. It's really hard to find a lot of information about him, but I am really impressed of what he's done so far. With only 21 he's played at many very famous festivals all around the world. At the moment he's touring through Europe and guess where I am; as far away as one could be. I will spent the rest of the year in Dunedin, New Zealand, in the little paradise far away from everywhere else. 

               Queenstown - the most adorable little town I've ever seen.

But back to Nicolas; he is the owner and the founder of the label Clown and Sunset and gives young and auspicious artist a space to produce their music. I don't want to categorize him or his music. His music is basically a form of electro with hip hop, trip hop and latin music influences. He said himself that his music belongs to no defined genre, and i totally agree. He loves the silence and you can hear silence in all of his songs.

He was born in New York, moved to Chile and back when he was a teenager. For him coming back to New York had a great effect on his music. He started making organic electronic music when he was 14 and published his first single "The Student EP" on Wolf and Lamb Music (one of THE labels) when he was 17. He now studies Comparative Literature at Brown University.

His music makes me think, makes me dream, makes me believe in my dreams and hi-jacks my mind to other worlds. My greatest admirations goes to his pure honesty in making unique music.

If you're interested check out his webpage, his label or one of the simply positive interviews!

My favourite song at the moment: Balance her in between her eyes and ever since Time for us and of course Nico's Feeling Good 

A last thought about sharing: Nicolas' music means a lot to me (to be honest, I am totally addicted to it) and sharing and spreading love and respect for him and his work is a great honour for me. I hope you enjoy listening to his music!
