Another day and another big mix from the man of the moment; Jamie xx. Everything this guy touches turns to gold. He even manages to sample the Countdown theme tune in a grime mix without looking like a complete twat! How is this possible, you ask? Some say he is half mortal, half badman.

Listen to his grimey mix from Mistajams Radio 1Xtra show on Tuesday night, with the Countdown theme in all it’s glory, below.

As SME mentioned earlier, Jamie xx dropped into Radio 6 Music on Sunday evening and took over the 6 Mix.

Unsurprisingly, he delivered a gem of a mix which features everything from his collaboration tracks with Gil Scott-Heron, 70’s Soul Tracks, UK Garage beats and Grime from the likes of Roll Deep.

You can listen to his crazy cool set below, courtesy of the wonderful iPlayer.

Here is the latest track from Jamie XX’s upcoming album in which he is re working Gil Scott-Heron’s LP 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.

SME haven’t heard a bad piece of music from Jamie Smith since he’s embarked on solo projects away from the xx. This talented kid really can do no wrong.

In his latest bit of magic, Jamie casts a spell on New York producer Faly DL’s ‘Hip Love’.

Look out for the release of his Gil Scott-Heron album project early this year. ‘We’re New Here’ is released on February 21 2011 and is one of our most anticipated albums of 2011.
