Following the release of his exceptional debut LP “Classical Curves” earlier this year, we present Jam City’s second single from the project, and arguably his boldest statement yet.
“How We Relate to the Body” marries Jersey Club’s gravity-defying kicks with jubilant, funk-inflected, dance hall-reverbed stabs that are both euphoric and giddying, narrowing the divide between the anthemic and the intimate. It’s both a mission statement and a demonstration that on Earth, this is how we relate to the body. A timely reminder of the visceral thrills of humans dancing next to humans, and a dancefloor anthem in the making.
Side B turns said floor upside-down. A snapshot of club ecstasy slowly turns into a meditation, a mantra, a prayer, suspended in infinity until the grooves run out. It’s Chez N Trent on infinite loop, Daft Punk with the pause button, a hymn to The Loop. It’s also a goodbye to the world of Classical Curves.
