This thought seems to occur quite often at the moment. Why are there three members in the XX? Can’t Romy and the other one just bugger off and keep quiet while Jamie XX does EVERYTHING. Ok, so perhaps that might not work too well. But the XX’s follow-up LP, Coexist, is OK. But it felt a bit derivative. Since LP1, Jamie XX has become the real star. His remix album of Gil-Scott Heron was phenomenal, and a couple of his own tracks he put out, such as ‘Far Nearer’, are just plain brilliant.
So here we have an XX track, remixed by a member of the XX. Like dogs eating dogs. But this is one tasty dog.
