Have you ever literally felt the beach and the sun warming up against your skin while listening to a record? The steel drums and bright ambiance that make you feel like you’re in a montage for either a nature film or some sweeping film that’s more than likely going to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards? That’s what “Far Nearer” feels like from Jamie xx. The single has been a mainstay of his DJ gigs out in London and now thanks to Numbers can be purchased as a stand along single. On the flip side of the 12′ vinyl is the absolutely dense sub popping “Beat For”, a much darker companion to “Far Nearer” in its heavy bass and much more moodier template.
