Richard Russell discusses Jai Paul's next move

25 September 2014, 18:39 | Written by Laurence Day

In an interview with XL's supreme overlord Richard Russell, Pitchfork discovered a few more details about the elusive recluse, Jai Paul.

Russell told Pitchfork - among many other intriguing titbits in the lengthy interview - of admiration and bewilderment when it comes to Jai Paul:

"I don't know what he’ll do next. I just want someone of his unbelievable caliber to keep making stuff, and, hopefully, we’ll hear it. The fact that people want to hear it so much in this incredibly overcrowded world of music is a testament to how special it is. I mean, we released very good one-off records early on in the days of XL, and he's beyond a one-off - he's already properly put out two things."
