Happy Friday, kids!
Anytime a jamie xx track comes on on my mp3 player, i always catch myself thinking who produced this quality track? And of course i momentarily realize it’s jamie xx. The 1/4 (1/3) of the XX is seriously the master craftsman of electronic sound. Prove me wrong, please!
Four Tet : Lion (Jamie XX Remix)
did you hear the drop at 4:39?! dayum!
Its easy to see that dubstep has lost its way. You don’t need to see the glow stick toting shirtless fellows to know that we’ve fucked up. Fortunately, when the bros were busy throwing down, they failed to notice the rise of the next generation of bass music. Now, its time to crown our prince of dubstep. James Blake.
Retrograde is an ethereal yet powerful single off James’ sophomore album. It’s a hauntingly beautiful song that hints of another amazing album from the young Brit.
The album, Overgrown, drops on April 8th, 2013. You can also catch James at the Commodore Ballroom on April 25th.
