“A pure, optimistic slice of breezy, unaffected synth pop, packed with colour and no small degree of wit.” – CLASH MAGAZINE
James Yuill of folktronic fame returns, teaming up with British production newcomer Jackson, on ‘Love Love Love’ – An addictive dance/folk fusion full of good vibes, complete with James’ soft distinctive vocals, mellow organs and cool guitars.
With a background in DJing, producing was a natural next step for London based Jackson, meeting with James Yuill and convincing him into the studio for this collaboration. As an artist, James is known for his incredible one man electro-folk shows which he has toured around the world alongside the likes of Phoenix, Hot Chip, Royksopp, Temper Trap and M83. He has released full-length albums on the constantly cool UK indie Moshi Moshi, Nettwerk, Co-Operative Music as well as his on his own Happy Biscuit Club label.
As a producer, remixer and featured artist, James has collaborated with the likes of X-Press 2, David Holmes, Casiokids, Au Revoir Simone, Downtown Party Network, Post War Years and Trophy Wife.
To make things more dance floor friendly, remixers include hot German producer Zwette, still riding high from his recent remix of Tom Odell’s ‘Another Love,’ offering a speedy stripped down version of the original. Also worth a look – the dub mix, echoing James’ vocal with deep bass and spacious effects.
Elsewhere on the remixes, Paul Harris of Dirty Vegas fame turns in a 90’s DefMix inspired piano stormer. Sascha Klober steps up with chopped vocals, grand chord progressions and a cool lead line. Peak Time House extraordinaire Vanilla Ace applies his trademark skills, adding energy, drops and a vocal loop. And finallySakloe finishes off the remixes with a tropical vibe, adding light fx to the guitars and a powerful mid range encompassing soft keys and galactic stabs – definitely one that will creep into your new year playlists!
