The breakdown of the xx member's most essential songs in this week's edition.
London's Jamie Smith is best known as a pivotal member of indie trio the xx. However, more recently, Jamie xx has been making a name for himself as a producer of electronic music that spans a pretty wide variety of sounds.
What started as a side project from the usual xx material has turned into Jamie's main hustle. It started with the massive amount of hype his Gil Scott-Heron remix album, We're New Here, received upon its release. Since then, Jamie xx has released a bunch of remixes and originals, both poppy and obscure, to the delight of his fans.
From the radio-friendly single "Loud Places" to obscure post-dubstep beats, this dude is an absolutely monstrous producer. With his upcoming album, In Colour, set for a June 1st release, we figured it would be a good time to school our readers on Jamie's 10 essential tracks.
