Nicolas Jaar turns label into online radio network
‘Other People, the Nicolas Jaar label has been re-launched as an online radio network. The online radio network operates through the record label’s website.
He is pressing pause on his monthly subscription service. For $10 a month subscribers got new music every Sunday from ‘Other People’.
This has been difficult to keep up, due in part to his busy tour roster and the financial implications. Nicolas Jaar will now be focusing on “a much smaller batch of yearly releases starting in 2017”.
‘Other People’ is therefore starting to take the shape of a more traditional label. Only what is being done with the website as an online radio network is certainly out of the ordinary.
The site will now be at the Other people.network address, this move is representative of his experimental tendencies.
Features of new online radio network
The online radio network has various channels and opportunities for finding good music. You will be able to skip through channels in multiples of three.
The point behind the new online radio appears to be ambiguous but speculation is that it will lead to a new album.
The last time Nicolas Jaar released an album was back in 2011, titled ‘Space Is Only Noise’. Recently he has concentrated on smaller releases such the Nymphs single trilogy and Pomegranates.
Nicolas Jaar’s statement:
First, I want to thank you for your amazing support over the past 3 years, you have allowed us to experiment and grow. But most importantly, you’ve sustained a space for dozens of young artists from all over the world to begin or continue their paths.
As some of you may have noticed, we have stopped our monthly subscription. There are two reasons behind this decision. First of all, I will be playing live again and unable to be fully present on a week to week basis. But it’s also a financial decision: every release was a labour of love, and I took up DJing the last couple of years in part to finance the label. We will now concentrate on a much smaller batch of yearly releases starting in 2017.
Until then, the site will mutate into www.other-people.network (Chrome preferred). I will let you guys discover what this is on your own but all I’ll say is that channels 324, 195, 108, 243, 225, 33 would be good places to start. And channel 333 will be a good place to end. Okay that’s all, see you on the road.
