Jamie xx remixes BBC Newsnight theme tune

Jamie Smith from the Mercury-prize winning trio has tried his hand at remixing the Newsnight theme tune.

BBC Newsnight will have a special programme tonight (Wednesday, 17th February) on the Alternative Vote (AV) – the pro, cons and likely impact of a switch to this electoral system. Ahead of the programme BBC turned to Jamie xx who provided the anthem for their 2010 general election coverage.

Jamie and Jeremy Paxman discussed the process involved – ahead of the unveiling of the remix on the AV programme at 10.30pm on Wednesday 17th February 2011 on BBC Two.
