Other People label founder Nicolas Jaar today surprise-announced that he would stream a new concert film this afternoon. TRANSITION was filmed at the now-closed Brooklyn DIY venue Aviv last September, stylistically taking inspiration from his 2016 LP Sirens and its related online radio network.

The tracklist for the film includes an mash-up of Arca and Missy Elliot, a cover of R&B artist Timmy Thomas' 1973 single "Rainbow Power," and what appear to be a host of unreleased tracks. One of the songs, "Elegua," appears to be a collaboration with Cuban rumba group Obbatuké.


It seems like TRANSITION will be on the more experimental end of things stylistically, which is not surprising coming from Jaar. A press release says that it will be a point of view film.

It will be broadcast on Boiler Room's website at 4 PM EST today.
