Published Aug 07, 2014Other People is a self-described "serial label" that delivers new music each Sunday, but it has something special planned as it approaches its one-year anniversary: a compilation that includes new music from label founder Nicolas Jaar, his Darkside project and others.
This is a follow-up to the label's debut compilation, Trust. The new comp is called Work, and it features two previously unreleased cuts from Jaar. There are two more from his duo Darkside, and another two from his Darkside bandmate Dave Harrington (including a cover of Nick Drake's "Things Behind the Sun"). The rest of the collection is rounded out by Soul Keita, VISUALS and Ancient Astronaut.
Work will arrive on September 29. It will be available digitally, as well as on CD and vinyl. This isn't a mish-mash compilation; according to a press release, "Its sequencing is deliberate and its selection purposefully not encompassing. In fact, Work is more an album than anything else."
