Jamie xx

I remember the first time I met Jamie xx.  We were working on the release of The xx‘s debut album.  Back then, he was telling me about a bunch of the bass/electronic music artists he was currently into and open to sharing his knowledge with me, which I was eager to hear!

And you may know, Jamie and The xx are now spreading that special knowledge to the masses in the form of their self-curated Night + Day festival tour (Remember when they brought out Jessie Ware in Berlin for a surprise performance?).  The European festival kicked off in Lisbon, Portugal back in May and ends this Sunday, June 23 in London.

The finale will feature special live performances by Solange, Mount Kimbie, Kindness, and London Grammer.  The festival will also feature a bandstand stage co-presented by Benji B‘s Deviation and Young Turks, with sets by Jamie, as well as Floating Points, Sampha and Koreless.

Check out Jamie’s recent DJ set from the Berlin leg of the festival, courtesy of Red Bull Music Academy, which features original production and original remixes.
