jamie xx la canvas

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.

[column][dropcap letter=”T”]his isn’t just another cocktail recipe lowdown you’ll find on Pinterest, although the satisfaction we’re about to roll out for you is tremendously Pin-worthy. We were thirsty one day and low and behold, Hennessy V.S. stopped by The Clubhouse with a man that gives the name “mixology” a run for its money, Hennessy Brand Ambassador Jordan Bushell. It was only 12pm here in LA but it’s always 5 o’ clock somewhere, right? “Bars I enjoy in LA are Sadie, the Library Bar at The Thompson Hotel, the bar at the ACE Hotel and Pour Vous. I enjoy exploring LA, as there are so many cool little gems that pop up every time I’m here.[/column] [column]It’s an ever-changing city with many cool bars on the rise,” Bushell notes. As we gathered around our editing bay island turned mixology central like buzzing bumblebees to honey, he schooled us while quenching our thirst for a taste of the latest in summer ordering sessions at your favorite spots. He even made an LA CANVAS signature cocktail — it wasn’t long before we asked for seconds — and gave in willingly when asked how to make them on your own, how to order them at your favorite spot and when the perfect time would be to sip on these delectable drinking curations. Summer, your welcome:[/column] [/columns_row]
