Track of the Day: Jamie XX Essential Mix

For many of you cats out there Jamie XX is nothing new. He is one electronic artists in a long line of beat innovators that wander the lonely roads at the edges of electronic music in the US and Europe. Flying Lotus, Actress, and James Blake are all out there with him along with innumerable other artists, but I wanted to highlight this essential mix as a way to highlight different sounds for our columbus scene to collect and play with. What use can we get out of James Blake’s mixing, track selection, and the narrative he is trying to rely to us through his mix?  There are a lot of cats in our scene devoted to playing with different styles. I mean its hard for me to even think of someone who doesn’t. As people interested in music, we seek out the curious and different and aim to understand it.  Let this be just another tool in our tool box to understand diverse forms and seek new possibilities. Enjoy! (Sorry if you already heard this)
