“One third of the Mercury Awards winners The XX and 2011’s most in-demand remix artist, Jamie XX, takes over the 6 Mix. Formed in London in 2005, the XX released their debut album in 2009, with its sparse, minimal production by Jamie pricking up the ears of scenesters and musicians alike. In 2010 his reworking of Florence And The Machine’s cover of ‘You Got The Love’ set the online world alight, and already this year his remix of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’ has become one of the most blogged tunes worldwide. As he prepares to release ‘We’re New Here’ – his dubstep and old skool house flavoured reworking of Gill Scott Heron’s 2010 album ‘I’m New Here’, Jamie takes over the 6 Mix to play a selection of the music which inspired his productions alongside some of his current favourites. Jamie also tells the story of how he came to remix the whole Gil Scott Heron album and the dance music influences which informed its radical reworking.”
