The one from The xx with all the fingers in all the pies, you know Jamie, was In The Mix for Benji B on BBC Radio 1 last night. He did a damn good job too. The last time I heard Mount Kimbie mixed into a slow-dub-waltz version of ‘Touch Me’ by Rui de Silva was in my dreams. You made my dreams come true Jamie xx. Which wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Pinglewood too so cheers guys.
It’s a funny one this; meaning you’ll want to tell people about it not that it’s one Fruit & Nut bar short of a tasty selection box. Gotta love a bit of Harmonic 313 cavorting with Lumidee. Remember those pies I mentioned before? Well he’s also set about remixing Gil Scott-Heron’s 2010 album I’m New Here, which will be released on Feb 21 UK/ 22 US and will suitably be named We’re New Here. This one goes out to the heads of the executed criminals displayed along London Bridge during the 16th Century. Tracklist for the mix after the jump.
