Jamie XX – Far Nearer / Beat For
Finally it’s here, Jamie XX’s debut single on Numbers.
Maybe it’s too early to call “Far Nearer” the quinessential summer jam of the season, but then again maybe it’s not – especially considering the way its steel drums wrap perfectly around the slightly warped vocals so fittingly.
B-side “Beat For” trades in the feel good vibes for spacey, static electricity swirling around another pitched vocal sample, and feels kind of like slowly emerging yourself into a hot tub that’s got some live wires drooping in the deep end.
The hi-spec 12″ comes complete with heavyweight vinyl housed in a fluorescent inner and die cut outer sleeve. Stream both tracks below, then do yourself + everyone a favor and grab it from Numbers or Rubadub.
