Saturday Night Listening: New tunes from Jamie xx and Rustie

Saturday night just got interesting. Even if you’re by yourself, sitting in your room (with a cheeky glass or two), these two new tracks are bound to make you feel like your feet are planted on the floor of a sweaty club. The first is, All Under One Roof Raving, by Jamie xx. It was premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC radio show, where Jamie revealed the song was created to be “something I could play out that reminded me how good home is”. We may not share the same Northern hemisphere home as the beats master but the track is no less relatable. Steel drums and a hip-hop vocal sample are the perfect remedy for a Saturday night. We only wish that we were under one roof raving with Jamie himself.

The second is the first single off Scottish producer, Rustie‘s new album, Green Language. While Jamie keeps it controlled, Rustie blows the roof off with Raptor. Shotgun beats underline a trap-inspired track that typifies Rustie’s total anarchy style. This one is definitely not for a quiet night in, but if you’re not out already it’s bound to make you don an outfit and hit the clubs. Just wait for dat drop.

Both the tracks require a bit of detective work to find but they are well worth the hunt. They both premiered on Annie Mac’s radio show which can be found here. Jamie XX’s All Under One Roof Ravings plays at about the 60 min mark while Rustie’s, Raptor plays around 1hr 21mins.
