Jamie xx celebrates laid-back living in his clip for “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” a track from the British producer’s debut LP, In Colour. The video, directed by Rollo Jackson, features segways and floating banners as the producer spins records in dimly lit spaces and guest vocalists Young Thug and Popcaan hang out on big-city balconies.
The soulful track is built on Jamie xx’s breezy electronic groove and a prominent sample of vocal group the Persuasions’ “Good Times.” Young Thug interjects throughout with verses on romance and sex, rhyming, “I don’t have patience, baby / She gon’ get on top of this dick / And she gon’ squish it like squish, then go fast, she Speed Racer.”
The video comes ahead of a “Good Times” remix featuring rapper Skepta, which premieres today on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, the Fader reports.
Jamie xx, a member of acclaimed indie-pop band the xx, released In Colour in May. The producer talked about the eclecticism of the LP – which we named one of the 45 Best Albums of 2015 So Far – in an interview with Rolling Stone. “Before the first xx record, I pretty much exclusively listened to electronica,” he said. “Now, I listen to anything. I think the most inspiring thing is just learning more about more and more different kinds of music and becoming a fan of so many different types and so many different genres.”
