Jamie XX has long been a favourite of mine and someone who always impresses me when I hear his stuff. He’s originally part of The XX but does DJing on the side under his stage name Jamie XX. His new track for Young Turks ‘All Under One Roof Raving’ is definitely another great song for summer and along with a lot of his music, I’m sure this will be a grower.
This song was written as a homage to the UK when he was touring and missing life back home. Quite nice to know a bit about the background of the song before you listen as it gives you a bit of context to the samples used:
“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.”
