    Anyone feeling this band?

    I searched up some of their music after hear 'Islands' on Radio 1 and they are extremely good.

    Crystalised



    Islands



    Cover of "You've Got The Love"



    The beatmaker and APC player in the band, Jamie xx, is a shit hot producer too. He's making some superb music at the moment.

    Check their version of You've got the love. Proper old garage feel to it.

    also alix perez & khanage have done a bootleg of shelter. then again almost everyone has remixed them in some way consider the way their tracks are written lend themselves so easily to remixes.

    The remix of the Florence and The Machine version of You Got The Love is dope

    Not so keen on everything else but Jamie is a good producer

    Yes the xx are sick.. Gloxxy your right about the you got the love remix.. Such a good track, their remix of rolling in the deep is amazing as well... Heard some forthcoming stuff the other day from a friend who works at universal records... Will be a good year for them
