[FRESH VIDEO] Jamie xx & Gill Scott-Heron – I’ll Take Care Of You by wearesme

Premiered by Dazed & Confused, here is the brilliant new video for an equally brilliant song from Jamie xx and Gil Scott-Heron; I’ll Take Care Of You.

The beautifully shot film profiles a single mother who is torn between caring for her child and pursuing a career as a boxer. She trains hard in the gym and returns to her council flat to play with her young child.

“Who want’s to fight all of the time unless there’s something wrong with you”. A moving insight, set to the soundtrack of a moving song.

[LISTEN] Jamie xx & Yasmin at the Boiler Room (Live Set + ‘Touch Me’ Cover) by wearesme

This time last week love was in the air on Valentines day and we’ve certainly got love for Jamie xx’s live set at The Corsica Studio’s for the Boiler Room Valentines Session.

And as if having Jamie on the decks wasn’t a sufficient Valentines surprise, he brought along Yasmin to go b2b and perform a new track that they have been working on; a cover of Rui Da Silva’s classic house song ‘Touch Me’.
It is unclear if this brilliant re-work is set to feature on Yasmin’s debut album on which Jamie has been producing, but either way SME hope it gets a release.

Listen to the full set below and check out the video footage of Yasmin’s performance.

Here is the latest track from Jamie XX’s upcoming album in which he is re working Gil Scott-Heron’s LPĀ I’m Here New and calling it I’m New Here.

My Cloud is a lot more mellow than the other tunes that we’ve heard so far but we love it and can’t wait for this masterpiece of an album to drop on February 21st.

[BANGER OF THE WEEK] J.Cole feat. Drake – In The Morning / Adele – Rolling In The Deep (Jamie XX Remix) by wearesme


In the lead up to seeing Drizzy and J.Cole last night at the HMV Hammersmith Apoloo, naturally, we had this BIG track on repeat throughout the week. Listen and enjoy these 2 extremely talented guys on one track.


Drake and J.Cole gig aside, this incredible remix from Jamie XX is our ‘real’ banger of the week! Jamie works his magic once more on this already beautiful track from Adele, giving it a few steel drums and percussions.

Here is the official video for Adele’s first single ‘Rolling In The Deep’ taken from her eagerly anticipated upcoming album ’21’.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is such an epic tune but we wish they went with the ‘Studio Footage’ released last month. Shot in black and white and following Adele through the highs and lows of recording, we felt it represented her comeback single perfectly.

Either way SME think 2011 is Adele’s year. Mark our words!

[FRESH VIDEO] Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX – NY Is Killing Me by wearesme

In February 2010, Gil Scott-Heron released ‘I’m New Here’, his first album in thirteen years. In August 2009, as a member of The xx (and producer) Jamie xx released his debut album ‘xx’.

‘NY Is Killing Me’ is the first song from ‘We’re New Here’, Jamie xx’s reworking of 13 tracks from the Gil Scott-Heron ‘I’m New Here’ sessions.

This track is a little bit special; it has such an infectious beat you cant help but nod your head to. It’s the sort of beat you could see some of the Grime heads jumping on.

SME can’t wait to hear what else Jamie has in store on this album.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

We’re New Here is released on February 21 2011.
