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.

[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.

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.

[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 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.
