Nicolas Jaar Launches New Online Radio Network

Now we just need a new song.

A few days ago, news emerged regarding a possible new project from Nicolas Jaar. Now, it looks like Jaar has another music-related venture on his hands: an online radio network. As Pitchfork notes, Jaar has just launched a new website built around a radio-streaming outfit, labeling the effort a"mutation" of his 2013 label Other People. There are several different channels streaming on the site, all of which are accessible by entering a number -- but only multiples of 3 -- between 0 and 333. Some of the destinations even feature artwork related to some of Nicolas Jaar's work. You can read Nicolas Jaar's official statement on his new endeavor below.

Dear Opies,
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.

Thank you
Thank you
Thank you

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.

Love,
N
