LISTEN : Jamie XX Remixes Four Tet's "Lion"

LISTEN : Jamie XX Remixes Four Tet's "Lion" | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

Over the past few years, Kieran Hebden--aka Four Tet--has show his love for all things the xx by remixing a few of their songs, including "Angels." Now Jamie xx has returned the love by tackling Four Tet's "Lion," off this past summer's Pink. Jamie xx takes the original's moody atmosphere and gives it a gently clicking beat that truly swings. It seems the pair are learning a lot from each other as tour partners, and the remix is another fine addition into Jamie xx's canon.

It’s been a solid two and a half years since the last time I saw the xx. It definitely showed, as this was not even close to the same band that I saw at Webster Hall.
This was a stronger, much different version of the band.
