The Jam Jar • Curated by Eau Claire
You may have noticed, it's been a minute. A recent move to NYC created a bit of chaos and a blip in our programming, but we couldn't be happier to have the Jam Jar back in action and better than ever today, with a warm welcome from the one and only Eau Claire.
Fresh off a supporting tour for Goldroom and Autograf, the DC–based producer was kind enough to take some time to put together a selection of choice tunes she's been listening to as of late. Some absolute gems in here, including the likes of POOLCLVB, Loframes and Gigamesh. Not to mention Eau Claire's brilliant new single All The Wonder, which comes off her debut EP of the same name, and is a track we've had literally on repeat for the past month. So without further adieu, jump into her picks and some words below!
Catch the full set on Soundcloud here.
Justin Timberlake — Suit & Tie (Bête Noire Remix)
You should keep your eye out for this DC based duo - I really like their French house/nudisco style and their latest remix definitely deserves more attention. I had them open up for me in DC this summer for my Feed Me Disco night and they really later down a stellar opening set.
Kraak & Smaak — Alone With You (ft. Cleopold) (Loframes Remix)
Franck and James are one of the hardest working producers I know and they've been releasing tracks faster than I can even keep up with. I included their remix of Alone With You in a majority of my sets on tour with Autograf and Goldroom earlier this month. its such a jam - no pun intended :)
Eau Claire — All The Wonder
After years of remixing, this is my debut original and It's the first time I've recorded my own vocals. The whole singing and songwriting process was new to me but I really enjoyed it and hope to record more of my own tracks in the future.
RÜFÜS — Brighter (Adam Foster's Dialect Edit)
I've had my eye on Adam Foster's work for some time now. I started most of my sets on tour with his remix - so much positive vibes. I like what he did with Rufus' vocals and the lead synths - they're super catchy.
BBNG x CDW — In Your Eyes (Nick AM Edit)
I actually just heard this edit for the first time yesterday and to be honest I haven't heard of either artists. I went back to hear the original track by BADBADNOTGOOD and Charlotte Day Wilson and I really like what Nick did with the track, making it a little more dance friendly but still maintaining the composure of the original.
ALVY — FACE A
A new release from Paris based producer ALVY, his sound also reminds me of Défense, but a little more house than nudisco.
POOLCLVB — Always
One of my favorite Aussie artists just released a new single off their forthcoming EP on EtcEtc. Definitely will be playing this one out.
Le Youth — Me Without You (Ghosts of Venice Remix)
Very into the 80's vibes that Ghosts of Venice put on Le Youth's new single.
Gigamesh — Synchronize (Ft. Kaleena Zanders)
Another stellar track from Gigamesh's Time Travel Vol. II EP. I've been so impressed with all of his releases.
Goldroom — Breaks
Josh's entire album is such an amazing piece of work; I had the pleasure to work on a remix of one of the songs off of his album, Breaks. No matter how many times I listen to this track, I will never get tired of it.
