Today’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’ to arresting effect.
So listen to Jamie’s FACT mix, a dusk-lit garage and house session featuring Elgato, Dark Sky and a bunch of stuff we’ve never heard before, though alternate versions of a couple of well-known Jamie xx remixes appear to be present. Naturally, there’s no tracklist supplied.
