DARKSIDE is the collaborative duo of guitarist Dave Harrington and electronic producer Nicolas Jaar. The two musicians have vastly different backgrounds, but over the course of several years of touring together they found common ground: DARKSIDE. Dave and Nico use each other as mediums, working on primal instinct and summoning a hybrid of electronic music and psychedelic rock with the kind of artistic depth and breadth for which the term “progressive” was coined.

Currently listening to Paper Trails, a song that progresses into the "cosmic outer edges through the immerse, body-moving framework of 21st-century house and techno". If I had to compare the simply incomparable, I would say DARKSIDE reminds me of Empire of the Sun; but only the weird beats, not the over played song you hear on the radio. The sort of music lover who will love DARKSIDE is a listener who is able to let go and listen to the beats develop into songs that are produced with smooth rock and matching electronic beats. Psychic, an album of uncompromising creative vision from two artists working at the peak of their powers.
