If you follow the stuff I post here at The CUS, you know how I feel about Jamie xx. Not only does the guy have technical command over his craft (anyone who’s messed with a DAW should know what I’m talking about), but he has impeccable taste. In other words, he makes the kind of stuff I couldn’t shrug off if I tried– his forthcoming Gil Scott-Heron remix LP a case in point. I’ve already pre-ordered the limited edition vinyl. If you know what’s good for you, you should too.
Back to the point, it’s great news in my books, that Drake feels the same way as I about this London-based dial turner (he recently said “Jamie is probably one of the msot exciting producers I’ve ever heard”), and publically announced that he will be teaming up with Jamie xx for his next record (Young Money Records), set to drop this spring. I. Can’t. Wait.
