December 8, marked 33 years since John Lennon was murdered. To honor his memory, Nicolas Jaar shared an hour-long mix through his Other People imprint. It’s titled “OUR WORLD”.
The mix pieces together clips of drone, film music, and experimental piano works with beat-oriented clips. It opens with a Lennon interview segment and a broadcast regarding his death, and ends with Jaar’s mix of “Oh My Love” from 1971’s Imagine. About 21 minutes in, Jaar splices in a clip documenting a Black Friday fight at a Wal-Mart.
