#ThrowbackThursday: Jamie XX – Sleep Sound
Not so much a ‘throwback’ but still a damn good piece of music.
Such a special track. Released only in 2014 so I’m not sure it complete warrants the title of ‘throwback’ just yet but it came into my mind and I had an irresistible urge to share this beautiful piece of music.
Full of character, like so many of Jamie XX’s other productions, Sleep Sound is a full on journey full of chapters swirling down a spiral staircase of audio wonder with transitions that make your heart sing. At points it almost sounds like 2 tracks layered in a seamless fashion on top of each other, one: an empty warehouse, two-step shuffling beat, the other, a strawberry sundae at a Summer picnic in a field of Sunflowers.
enjoy one of my favourite tunes with me by hitting play.

“Bass does something to me. I absolutely immersed myself in Drum & Bass during my teens and early twenties, and when Dubstep came along I was thrown into that love once again, not just the music, but the whole community surrounding it.
Working in the industry has been a dream for me, and being involved in such a vibrant scene means that I constantly come across incredibly talented individuals who I just want to shout about and that’s what I use the UKBM platform for, to promote talent whether known or new.”
