So many great tunes have been coming my way lately, I’m genuinely feeling like I want to do extra busy work or house cleaning just so I can have an excuse to keep listening. Not a ton of time today to break down the ins and outs of why each one of these songs flips my lid, but rest assured this is a top-notch batch of serious melodic mastery. For those of you in LA, catch me at Caña Rum Bar this Thursday night playing a set that leans heavily on the vintage Latin classics, then for all my people in NYC, I’m back there this upcoming Sunday at The Jimmy. Come through and get yourself into the Summer state of mind…
Jamie xx : I Know Theres Gonna Be (Good Times)
