Video: Jamie xx – All Under One Roof Raving

Jamie xx returns with a new track for Young Turks titled All Under One Roof Raving – a homage to the UK.

I’m sure that this track will be a grower, as with a lot of Jamie’s music when first heard. The story behind this one is particularly touching and well worth being aware of before listening as it puts context to a lot of the sounds and samples being used throughout the song …

“I made All Under One Roof Raving whilst on the tail end of another year on the road with The xx. I was missing life in London and trawling through any music and videos that reminded me of home. One in particular I found very inspiring, Mark Leckey’s ‘Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore.’

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.”

The one track single was released today in digital format for £1 on the Young Turks website and will be available on vinyl in August.
