FACT mix 282: Jamie xx

This Monday’s FACT mix takes the form of a haunting, late night garage session from a certain Jamie Smith.

You’re presumably already familiar with Smith by now: percussionist and producer in Mercury Prize-winning three-piece the xx and a solo producer in his own right, this year remixing Gil Scott-Heron’s I’m New Here over the course of a full album and releasing one of 2011′s most debated singles in ‘Far Nearer’, released on Numbers. He also remixed Adele’s ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and more to arresting effect.
