Jamie XX (the drummer and producer of the band XX) is becoming quite the celebrity with his solo DJ work. The first track of his that I heard was the mesmerizing remix of Gil Scott Heron’s “New York Is Killing Me” earlier this year. Well, over the weekend, Jamie XX took over BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix program, and ripped out a full two hour set for those of you that dig on the electronic remix thing.
I have a link below to the “New York Is Killing Me” remix, as well as, the entire two hour Essential Mix set via SoundCloud. If you want a track listing for the Essential Mix set, Daily Swarm breaks it all down for you.
