It has been over a year since Jamie xx dropped the first tracks from this new album, 'Sleep Sound' and 'Girl', but after months of build up and a flurry of incredible follow up singles, the producer has finally released his official debut album 'In Colour'. While much of the record has already been shared in various forms, it is only when you hear the record from start to finish that you begin to see the whole picture of what this producer is capable of.
Not to overhype it too much, but 'In Colour' is quite simply one of the best albums we have heard in years. After breaking into it with the opener 'Gosh', the record begins to explore a whole range of different yet captivating directions that leave you in awe after every track. Playing like a atmospheric dance record, 'In Colour' has this rich layer of emotion and focus that pulls you right in to the music and leaves you breathless as it continues to surround you in its effortless joy.
You would be hard pressed to find something you didn't like about this new full-length. Its complete and diverse approach to sonic sound is miles ahead of anyone else at the moment and shows that Jamie xx really is one of the best musicians the UK has produced this century.
