Jamie xx BBC 1 Mix and Gil Scott-Heron Remix

I missed everything that happened on the internet yesterday so this morning has been filled with some wonderful treasures thanks to Jamie xx, Pinglewood and GVB.

Is this guy as on fire as everyone says he his? It seems difficult that every mix he does could be so sick but the man delivers time and time again. I got to see him in some basement in New York a couple of months back and after blowing a speaker on track 2 I knew the bass was doing major damage to my hearing. I can’t wait to listen to this BBC mix on some good speakers.

The aboslute highlight of this mix is Far Nearer matched to some drums from The Knife. I’m not sure if The Knife have reworked the song or if Jamie was doing some mashup work. Either way, his love for military drums is apparent. I can’t wait to hear the final version of “Far Nearer.” Tracklist is in the comments.

Also, grab a new track from the remix Jamie is doing of  Scott-Heron’s “I’m New Here” which should be out in the next couple of months.
