NEVER ENOUGH STEEL DRUM: JAMIE XX DROPS A BRIT-TROPIC TUNE

[dropcap letter=”B”]ritish producer and remix artist from The XX, Jamie Smith (aka Jamie XX) just dropped a tune titled, “All Under One Roof Raving” — and we like it. Now hear us out: it’s not rave music, people going to a rave or what happens at a rave. Weren’t those finished and done with in the mid-late 90’s, anyway?

Instead, this British homeland-infused track carries tropical notes fit for life on the beach, sexy spoken word vocals and an eclectic video by visual artist Rose Pilkington, which brings out all the lovely notes. On inspiration behind the track Jamie states, “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.” This music mix master definitely never drops a bad tune in our lap.
