“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.”

Pitti Uomo 83-06 Jamie xx

The first in a new series for BBC 6, Jamie XX hands in an eclectic mix that digs through gems of disco, house, soul, funk etc. He showcases tracks done by Pional, Hyetal, Todd Edwards and also his own edits of among others The XX and Four Tet. Towards the end he sneaks in one of his own new tracks for your listening pleasure.

Jamie Smith of The XX performs on stage at The Bodega Social Club in Nottingham as part of the 2009 Dot To Dot Festival.

Jamie XX treats us to a softer start this monday morning with this new track which is lifted off his Live at Night + Day Berlin mix. The track begins slow and dreamy then rolls on with added vocals samples as the track rises and progresses with a shuffling beat. (Via LateNightMix)
