Space never feels like a showcase for Nicolas Jaar; it's just a modest and well-decorated gathering place for some things he loves, a place for them to interact.

Tiny Mix Tapes

Jaar builds an enveloping, cigar-smelling atmosphere through practically imperceptible transitions and uses ambient noise not as a stylistic gimmick but as a vital tool for maintaining a consistent tone while shifting styles so frequently.

In my opinion the best thing Nico has done to date.
One of the cleanest sounding records I've personally have ever herd.
A dark yet very relaxing record. Incredible sound design and sampling.
Put's me in a very pensive state. I get lost in a trance when i put this on.
Sometimes i'll sit still and just stare at my carpet for the entire duration of
the album and completely lose all sense of time.
