Boomkat product review for:

jamie xx - Far Nearer / Beat For

Jamie xx finally lands his Numbers debut! The distinctive steel-pan tones of 'Far Nearer' were touted since the end of last summer but only now make their way to full public consumption, just in time to soundtrack a hundred thousand (and one) sessions in the sun. It's anthemic potential is undoubted, but it's built with genuine class and the widest appeal imaginable (unless you don't like dancing, or fun, or timelessly gratifying pop music), treading that fine line between sincere, melancholy soul and romantic pop with innate finesse. The newer production, 'Beat For' cuts a similar path but errs more towards the melancholy, reflecting shades of Burial or James Blake in the pitched vox and ethereal urban ambience, but those slicing drums, ultra-wide bass and detuned '90s House riffs are built with a cannier dancefloor knowledge individual to Jamie's deceptively effortless sound. This one just recommends itself.
