“When I first started writing this record, in my head, I was 18, back in the Liquid & Envy in my hometown of Redhill on a Saturday Night,” Jam City remarked in a press statement. “Fuck London, I’d only been a few times for school trips anyway. This was where it was at. Walking through the doors to Photek’s ‘Mine to Give,’ it felt like you’d walked into Studio 54 or something.

Jam City broke through in the early 2010s as a producer associated with the Night Slugs label. Notably, he produced music for Kelela’s Cut 4 Me and Take Me Apart. In recent years, he’s made his name in the pop mainstream, working on tracks for Troye Sivan’s Bloom and Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour.
