Jamie xx mix, featuring his Radiohead remix

Jamie xx’s Essential Mix, part of the long-running BBC Radio 1 series, was broadcast on Friday night, and it’s streamable below. By anyone’s measure, as the principal beatmaker for The xx and one of the most-travelled DJs on the scene, Jamie has more than earned his place at the top ranks, and this mix is a varied, thick reminder of why, weaving between rave, soul, disco, dubstep, D&B, ghettotech and house, all with his trademark sensitive, spacious sound. It’s a pretty romantic mix, actually, offering a confident insight into the pirate-radio soundscape of this most gifted chap. Oh, and the big headline is that it finishes with his remix of labelmate Radiohead’s ‘The King Of Limbs’ track Bloom.
