In ColourJamie Smith, a.k.a Jamie xx, is a producer-musician from London that is most famous for his work with the xx.  Jamie entered his musical life as a percussionist. He soon turned his innovative rhythm-making skills towards the Electronic genre with fantastic results.

You’ll need to head over to YouTube to listen to Jamie xx’s better-than-the-original reworks of tracks by AdeleFlorence + the MachineJack Peñate, Radiohead, Alicia Keys, Glasser and Four Tet. He also had a fantastic collaboration with Gil Scott-Heron which can be found on Spotify. Of note,  the Drake song “Take Care,” samples the pair’s track, “I’ll Take Care of U.”

His debut album released this month, In Colour, is his first full length album as the headliner, but he is far from alone. Romy Madley Croft (the xx), Oliver Sim (the xx), Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Popcaan, and Young Thug all support. Be sure to also check out his performance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. My favorite lyric from that track is, “I go to loud places; To search for someone; To be quiet with.”
