On the title track of Majid Jordan’s The Space Between, singer Majid Al Maskati invites the object of his affection—or the listener, or both—to live in the moment with him. The directive comes at the end of a blissful album that aims to make each song its own event. The Toronto duo has existed in a perpetual state of evolution since rocketing into the spotlight, four years ago, with a feature on Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” Their 2014 debut EP, A Place Like This, settled on moody R&B, while their self-titled debut album from last year attempted a balancing act between sullen and bright. Here, on their sophomore LP, Majid Jordan arrive at a sweet spot: their own in-between, a dance-flavored romance uniquely theirs. They’ve created a set that understands the beauty of the journey, no matter the destination. Jordan Ullman’s retro-futuristic productions are built on a foundation of 1980s synth-pop energy and dreamy contemporary effects.
