"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, DJing and making my own album. It serves as a reminder, not to take any time for granted at home or away." Jamie xx

- All Under One Roof Raving by Jamie xx
Right. I dig the xx big time but I want to know why there is never any upper case xx's. Is that 'cause XXX's signify dodgy, nefarious things? Or is he just not into BIG SNOGZ?
I'm quite astonished by the production chops on this lad. He's proper hot shit these days is he not? Aw bless! Was a little worried by the intro to this one-sided (gah!) plate which I found a tiny bit irritating and hamfisted (I think it was generally to set the scene for the vocal samples) but then the steel calypso drums kick in and the whole thing explodes into a thrilling soupcon of unity, celebration and propulsive rhythmic funk.
There's not much else to say really, it's a vibrant and hugely enjoyable piece of hands-aloft UK bass music. Check the clips out innit. Bouncy. Point off as usual for waste of good vinyl, soz our kid.
