listen to a new collab from Jamie xx + Georgia Ellery of Jockstrap
Georgia Ellery of brilliant UK duo Jockstrap and Jamie xx have been quarantine lockdown mates, and the two recently hunkered down in Jamie's home basement studio for a couple of days, emerging with a sprawling, 12-minute-long, experimental collaborative piece for BBC Radio's Late Junction sessions. It's a beautiful union of Georgia's exquisite strings and Jamie's distinct production, finessed with additional synths and "improvised bits". Georgia sums it up thusly: "it's quite funereal in places...but it also grooves," while Jamie calls it "a winding journey," adding, "it was very freeing." Listen here, starting at around the 56 minute mark.
