The magic of the steel drums is perfect for basking in sun, even if it's in that sun spot on a cold winters day.

Jamie xx fans should already be familiar with the title track and opener "Far Nearer." Making its debut earlier this February, the leaked track was unfinished and rather unpolished-sounding but many were already attributing the tune to the late Gil Scott-Heron/Jamie xx remix project. Months later, it is finally revealed that both tracks are part of a larger project: the first official Jamie xx solo LP. Jamie xx is an unusual producer. As the xx's official percussionist/beatsmith, Jamie has pioneered the use of the MPC as a drumming tool. He has even moved on to become an accomplished and highly sought-after remix artist.

Everyone's saying it now, "Far Nearer" is going to be soundtracking the rest of their summer for this year. It's quite the unconventional track, really: steel drums, warped vocals, deep bass and a tinge of sunshine. It's no wonder Jamie xx has been receiving so much publicity. Every track he produces sounds absolutely original. Blogs and music reviewers alike have been parading the term "post dubstep" and "British" to describe the Jamie xx sound but really, it's something completely new and different.
