Recently, an absolute beauty of a new Jamie xx track came to light, a nice reminder (if we needed one) of just what a talented solo producer he is, quite aside from his percussion work with The xx. Last night, Jamie took over the reins of the BBC Radio 6 mix, where he’s joined a rotating cast which includes Goldie, Derrick May, Groove Armada, Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan. If you want a little insight into Jamie xx’s music taste, or just need a fun, upbeat, but never in-your-face mix to put on this weekend, let it be this one.
The recent untitled track we were getting so excited about is played last, and revealed to be called “Sleep Sound.”
