The Shlohmo remixes just keep coming. Earlier, Pitchfork debuted Chilean-American minimal artist Nicolas Jaar’s remix of “Rained The Whole Time” off of the Vacation EP. Removing Shlohmo’s sense of organized clutter from the track, Jaar manages to maintain the underwater feel of the track. The latin sounding guitar is still there, while the addition of stuttering drums transforms the track into a more dance-floor oriented house affair. Jaar, who is also a Comparative Lit student at Brown University, released one of last year’s most widely acclaimed minimal projects in his Space Is Only Noise album, and is poised for another big year in 2012. Unfortunately, “Rained The Whole Time” is only up for stream at the moment, but you can buy the entire Vacation 12″ at FriendsOfFriends, which also includes remixes from Groundislava, Salva and Teebs.
