Five years in the making, and Jamie xx’s long anticipated debut album finally blessed our systems, compressed into a dazzlingly coloured ecstasy pill, and begging for consumption. You let it melt on your tongue, but unlike the standard superficial chemicals we are used to, this drug is abound with rich flavours which perpetually flourish into deeper realms of tropical positivity, lingering with one helluva wonderful aftertaste. And before you know it, you are back in your youth, a proud part of the British rave counterculture, except things are a little different this time. The bangers are subtle now, lighter and more minimal, yet still very danceable within their relaxed serenity and elegance—which makes for a beautiful party. One where your own mood entrances itself; where the visuals are almost too bright; where the transcendental love is always accessible; and where there’s never a come down, ever again. And this is what makes In Colour so special: that it’s bouncing a few steps ahead of the trends whilst filling in all market gaps within the electronic scene like some heavenly liquid. Furthermore, it’s better than anything he’s ever done before, which comfortably includes The xx, no question.
