Why do we like this?
Once again Nicolas Jaar has laid down another delightful remix full of pulsating rhythms and attractive sound clashes. Featured as the first track on the notably recent Nicolas Jaar Essential Mix, this rework of Maceo Plex's "Gravy Train" is a widely manipulated track that conjures a smooth synergy of electronics that work together flawlessly. Its great, haunting atmospherics paired with bursting alt sax create an ultimate cohesion of suspense.

While the original version is deeply rooted in the ambient-house genre, Jaar's influence solidifies the blend, adding a little more pop and sizzle to an already groovy track. If anything, this remix is just another verification that Jaar's knack for creating crowd-pleasing minimalistic house numbers isn't a fluke; it's a ritual that is structured through unadulterated musical prowess.
