I recently came across UK house don jozif for the first time, when I heard his song “Twilight.”
The track features the vocals of go-to London lady Terri Walker. She adds a sexy touch to the pianos and deep bass behind — almost a Romy to Jamie if this were The xx. Which it isn’t. Quite. The similarities are certainly there, though. While Jamie, Romy, and Oliver tend to base their music in a more acoustic, organic zone, “Twilight” uses many of the same techniques but in an electronic context. For instance, check out the drums he drops in half way through. I certainly haven’t heard anything this intelligent since, well, The xx.
Keep your eyes peeled for jozif as he continues to blaze his trail!
