four tet : jamie xx : lion

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!

It’s that time of the week.

Time to cool down, slow down and wind down..

Delve into the sonic atmosphere of Hoyas. A new EP by Sean Carey (known for being the drummer of Bon Iver). Having studied percussion professionally, it is no accident this EP has that contemporary minimal percussion sounds fused w/ melody and ambient vocals similar to that of Jamie XX and James Blake.

Layback and listen.

Adele + Jamie XX + Heatwave & a lil Jamaican Spice!

This is a set-ender. Adele’s voice is often heard on the radio; my good man Jamie XX took this hit and turned it into a nice postdubstep piece (honestly, i can’t get enough of this guy! more to come). If that wasn’t enough Heatwave stepped in and made this refix! These guys are from London dancehall scene and their mixes make a sound that “ties together Jamaica and the UK.” Adding a bit of that Jamaican spice from Mr.Lexx & Timberlee to this track–at the end of it all we get this spicy, head-bobbling, a little dirty, melodic and ironically chill track.

 

enjoy, amigos!
