Lets talk about Him, yes Jamie XX! I think everybody have already heard about him, if you haven't please be aware!
Jamie Smith, is a 22 year-old producer, remixer and one-third of Mercury prize-winning minimalists the xx – is obsessed with musical spaces and gaps, with absence, and what he calls the "perfect imperfect".
Influenced by Koreless, Ramadanman, Mount Kimbie and Joy Orbison, (a part of an almost indefinable sound that's dominated the UK underground for years). In 2011, it seems, he is about to take it to the next level.
I think his work is really amazing and it's noticeable that he is really increasing.
This was the first set i've heard of Jamie, and i loved it so much that i couldn't stop listening! this made me search about him and his influences, which made me find such great things!
Hope you l o v e i t
