Listen: Jamie xx – BBC Essential Mix

August 29, 2011 by  

A few weeks back we went to The Big Chill and despite partying into the early hours since Thursday there was one stage closer on Sunday that we didn’t want to miss, Jamie xx.

The producer and DJ was closing one of the tents at 2am, so you can imagine how tired we were, but we still managed to go through to the end to see him drop his own track ‘Far Nearer’ at 4am.

As we crawled back to our tents all we could think about was getting hold of that mix and luckily his mix for the BBC this weekend has been posted on the internet by Young Turks.
