You have to listen to this. You have to. This isn’t optional. I have told many many many people about this. As have many others. But now I am telling YOU about this. The Jamie XX Benji B mix.
As good, actually a little bit better than the Santogold/Diplo from a few years which I was also listening to today walking around in the sunshine and loving again, for the 1000th time. Loving mainly the roughness of it. The not-caring-too-much. Albums take a lot of time, need to be crafted, need to be resolved and need to be definite moments in time that their makers are judged by. That can end up not being very fun for anyone, especially the listener.
Often (but not always) I think the best things we produce are quick, unthought, imperfect little automatic drawings that capture something of the moment in which they’re produced. For me, that is the ideal state of being, not really sure where you’re going or doing, but enjoying that feeling.
I’m not sure what this has to do with anything. I’ve had a few beers. I’m a little jetlagged. Struggling to conclude this in a meaningful way…
