New Music // Jamie XX – Girl

22 Apr

Jamie XX is back with another solo track, outside of his regular efforts with The XX, and it’s arguably his finest one yet. An off kilter bassline provides the slinky foundation for this languid groove, while Jamie’s signature deep kicks and sharp claps echo in the cathedral space as ethereal vocals cascade around you in the darkness like a sirens song, calling out from the other side. Girl is an absolutely sublime beauty, proving yet again that Jamie XX is one of the best producers working today.

 

 

New Music // Tourist – Together

22 Apr

London-based Tourist is steadily becoming one of the most interesting and dynamic Producers creating electronic music today, with his 3 Ep releases and collection of remixes dabbling confidently in a variety of styles, from the sun kissed Balearic bliss of Plastic Acid, the alien soundscape of I Have No Fear, and now the propulsive disco house of Together, he’s showing that he has the chops to succeed in not just one arena, but several. It’s too early to tell where this creative restlessness will take him, but at least for now it’s pretty clear that we should be together.
