Track: Jamie XX “All Under One Roof Raving”

It is looking to be a good year for Jamie XX, mastermind of The XX. His solo music has always been more to the dancefloor than his band’s, and after the single “Girl” earlier this year, the new track he recently previewed on Annie Mac’s BBC One Radio show is not only a dance track, but is celebrating dance culture. The steel drums, the 90ies break beats and the samples from a short film by Mark Leckey from 1999 are throwbacks in time and space. As Jamie XX stated, the track was made while watching videos and listening to tracks that reminded him of home, and so it ended up being pure nostalgia. It was released on Young Turks yesterday, along with the promise of an already recorded solo album. 2014 may end up becoming a good year not only for Jamie xx, but for music in general after all.
