The original version of "Big" by Sneaky Sound System is one of those beginning of the night dance tracks that would be right at home blasting out of a rented limo while some screaming girls in glittery dresses get super psyched to go to prom. Nicolas Jaar’s version takes very little from that one, instead flipping it on its head, letting the drums air out over breathy hiccuped vocals and desert-at-sunset ominous guitar. It's basically what would happen if those same prom girls actually got to the prom, opened the doors of their limo, went inside, and instead of a party there was just a single dude sitting in a chair drinking whiskey. Annnd that is absolutely the most accidentally terrifying thing we've thought of today, but Jaar knocked this one out of the park. It's worth your time. Stream below, and download here.
