All Under One Roof Raving

Album: Single Release Only (2014)

  • Lyrics
  • Described as a "homage to the UK rave scene," this song combines steel drums and bone-rattling bass with vocal samples from Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore, the 1999 Mark Leckey-directed film about Britain's club culture.
  • Speaking about the song, Jamie said: "I made 'All Under One Roof Raving' whilst on the tail end of another year on the road with The xx. I was missing life in London and trawling through any music and videos that reminded me of home. One in particular I found very inspiring, Mark Leckey's Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore.

    "I made this track in order to play out back home as I knew the year to come would be spent largely in the UK," he continued. "DJing and making my own album. It serves as a reminder, not to take any time for granted at home or away."
