Majid Jordan: A Place Like This

Machinedrum's haunting Vapor City medley, Can U Dance, Sébastien Tellier's PrivateJam and more in this week's look at music

With prominent vocals and production credits on Drake’s heavily rotated (and critically acclaimed) single “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” Toronto duo Majid Jordan had listeners intrigued. Composed of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, the PR-shy group offers up their single “A Place Like This.” Featuring a stripped-down beat reminiscent of Jamie xx and the same sleek vocals from Al Maskati that caught Drizzy’s ear, the track is a promising cut of downtempo house R&B in the spirit of the early mixtapes from fellow TO-based artist The Weeknd. Keep an eye out for the EP of the same name dropping 22 July 2014.
