1. Jamie xx - All Under One Roof Raving - Jamie xx
The fantabulous Jamie xx drops some more sensational music on us. This time a tribute to the UK, “All Under One Roof Raving” comes with a short message from the man himself.
“I made All Under One Roof Raving whilst on the tail end of another year on the road with The xx. I was missing life in London and trawling through any music and videos that reminded me of home. One in particular I found very inspiring, Mark Leckey’s ‘Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore.’ I made this track in order to play out back home as I knew the year to come would be spent largely in the UK, DJing and making my own album. It serves as a reminder, not to take any time for granted at home or away.”
Whatever the reasoning may be he seems to draw just the right amount of inspiration time in and time out to make his compositions connect with the listener and take us all on a bit of a journey. “All Under One Roof Raving” does just that as it progresses and builds, we are uncertain where it is going, but almost always pleasantly surprised with our destination.
