Prepare to be taken on a ride through the idyllic soundscapes of Jamie xx in his latest reinterpretation of an already certified classic by The xx, "On Hold."
The xx's triumphant return was marked by their more expansive third album I See You, recorded in New York, Marfa, TX, Reykjavik, Los Angeles and London rather than just their hometown.
If you tuned into Jamie xx’s standout Boiler Room set from Reykjavík this year, you’ve surely caught a glimpse of this uplifting edit, which is finally being released via Young Turks.
For an easy dancefloor energy, Jamie highlights the sprightly melody and trades in Romy and Oliver’s lead vocals for trip hop-inspired vocal cuts. Adding in his heavier, shuffling kicks and a warm bassline, he once again brings forth the perfect storm.
