Mercury-winner Jamie xx completes the new 6 Mix Residents line-up, reflecting the most exciting music emerging from clubs across the world.
Ever since bursting onto the UK music scene with his band, The xx, Jamie xx has been one of the most in demand and talked about artists around. Along with Romy Croft and Oliver Sim, he won the 2010 Mercury Music Prize, and continues to win plaudits from pretty much everyone who hears his music.
Having gone to the same South London school as Four Tet, Hot Chip and Burial, on his own he's re-worked Gil Scott-Heron's final album, and released original productions on Scottish label Numbers - who've also provided a platform for Rustie, SBTRKT and Deadboy. He's been at the forefront of UK Bass which has found its way into mainstream tracks and helped pave the way for the resurgence of Garage.
Hailed and supported by Thom Yorke of Radiohead no less, and with everything he does blogged about across the world, Jamie is more than a welcome addition to the 6 Mix Residents roster, reflecting the most exciting music emerging from clubs across the world.
