Jamie Smith has had a busy few years since he left Elliott School in London. After two years of working the off hours on a room right next to the XL and Young Turks label offices, his group The xx released their debut album to universal acclaim, sending their hushed sounds on a journey through television usage, festival main stages and households across the world. Even though they had worked with producers like Diplo before, in the end it was Jamie xx who produced the record himself. Despite the busy schedule that came with success, he has been taking every free minute available to slot in DJ sets and produce new music, remixing everyone who’s anyone, from Gil Scott-Heron, Adele and Radiohead, to FaltyDL and Nosaj Thing, to name but a few. Listen + download the 30 minute mix he did for Red Bull Music Academy.

Night Drive is the type of music you would hear on a car stereo if Giorgio Moroder and Ray Bradbury were driving late at night through a buzzing metropolis. Inspired by bygone era of glamour and excess, kalioscopic neon lights, Studio 54 and Tony Wilson’s Hacienda, the band pulls influence from acts such as Brian Eno, New Order, OMD, The Drums and LCD Soundsystem to name a few. Night Drive rides a nu-wave of fast-tempoed, synth-based electronic sounds driven by rich guitar melodies and arresting vocal hooks.
