The xx’s new album Coexist is a chart-topper, doubling down on the moody subtleties of their debut and expanding the band’s unique universe. Now, Four Tet is getting in on the fun and reimagining The xx in his own creative way.
Jamie xx appeared on BBC Radio 1 and premiered Four Tet’s take on the Coexist track “Angels.” He even hinted that it could come out on a split 12″ with his own remix of a Four Tet song, but there aren’t any concrete details as of yet. All we have now is this delicate version of “Angels,” complete with unspooling distortion and electronic textures bubbling underneath. Take a listen below. [Fact]
Update: The official version of Four Tet’s remix of “Angels” was uploaded by Young Turks. Listen below.
