Operating via his Other People imprints website, Nicolas Jaar has unveiled an extensive new online radio platform.
In bypassing the original subscription based format, Jaar now offers listeners the choice of radio stations, via multiples of 3, from number 0 – 333, of which 324, 195, 108, 243, 225, 33 are personally recommended. Otherwise, details are scarce for the project but there is speculation that it all is a lead up to the third part of a Nicolas Jaar release trilogy, which has already included 2015’s ‘Pomegranate’ and the ‘Nymphs’ collection.

Jaar’s full statement on the launch reads:
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.
