US/Chilean pin-up Nicolas Jaar has always had an ear attuned to sounds beyond the dancefloor.
His mixes tend to draw a range of pop and jazz into their smooth, twilit orbit, and some of his most distinctive work is built around the riches of pop’s past.
Jaar seems like an obvious choice, then, to remix the second single from Cat Power’s soon-to-be-released ninth album, Sun. The producer expands and extends the mournful backing, transferring it into a cavernous space where Power’s hushed whisper takes on an almost liturgical dimension. You can stream and download the ‘Cherokee’ remix, along with the original, below. Sun is due for release on September 4.
