Jamie xx’s In Colour on Vinyl
This 11-track electronic album follows on the heels of two successful studio albums from the band The xx, composed in part by Jamie Smith (aka Jamie xx). Though In Colour is Jamie xx’s first solo flight—and a successful one at that—he brings The xx’s other members along for part of the ride in songs including “SeeSaw” and “Stranger in a Room.” Other hits on the album include the prior releases “Girl” and “Sleep Sound.”
In the simplest of terms, Jamie xx creates electronic music. Speaking more specifically, he performs as a DJ, producer, and remix artist, and his music could be categorized as trip hop, post-dubstep, house, and/or UK garage.
- “In Colour [sic] [is] the dazzling culmination of Jamie xx’s last six years of work, gathering up elements of everything he’s done—moody ballads, floor-filling bangers, expansive and off-kilter collaborations with vocalists—and packing them tightly into a glittering ball that reflects spinning fragments of feeling back at us.” - Pitchfork
- “What Joni Mitchell’s ‘Woodstock’ was to the hippie era, Jamie xx’s solo debut is to British club culture: a wistful valentine conjuring a more innocent time.” - Rolling Stone
