Post Weekend Pick-Me-Up: Jamie xx - All Under One Roof Raving
Still trying to remember your weekend? Here’s something that will get you excited for the next one…
By Tamara Roper
The name Jamie xx has become a benchmark for musical quality. One third of The xx trichotomy, the last few years have seen him become one of the UK’s most important music producers, becoming both a Jack and master of all trades.
Dabbling with pop music on remixes of Adele and Florence and The Machine, and constructing modern soul to such success that Drake snatched his production for Take Care, Jamie xx’s new track, All Under One Roof Raving is a tribute to British dance music culture. Made whilst home sick and on tour with The xx, it’ll bring a fuzzy feeling back to anybody who’s struggling with the dreaded back to work blues.
From its title to the name checking of rave gear essentials, “Fila, Head, Kappa, Ellesse, Sergio Tacchini, Burberry, Diadora,” All Under One Roof Raving will get a United Kingdom’s worth of weekend warriors itching for Friday. Forget what day it is and get involved.
