There’s a lot to love about this Nicolas Jaar remix of Shlohmo’s ‘Rained the Whole Time’. Appearing on Shlohmo’s Vacation EP 12″, the remix proves once again that Nicolas Jarr really can do no wrong. His take on Henry Laufer’s track is just wonderful and I was delighted to see that the guys at Video Marsh had created an accompanying video for it.
Its combination of visuals and music really bring the whole thing to a new place and both elements together end up creating an experience which is best to just let wash over you. What I really love here is the mystery surrounding what exactly we’re watching. The subtle fluid movements and strange color combination feel like perhaps it’s simply paint, but other times it definitely feels as though we are being taken deep inside the human body. It’s mesmerizing stuff.
