Four Tet- Lion (Jamie xx Remix)
Posted by Anthony Obst
In yet the latest meeting of Elliott School alumni, Jamie xx takes on a tune from Four Tet's fantastic Pink compilation. On his edit of "Lion," the xx sound architect turns the dancefloor-ready, primeval stomper into a bit of a loner, which due to its fragmented nature may take a few listens to fully sink in. Cutting out the middle man, or rather, the kalimba, Jamie breathes space into the garage-y rhythm, making way for his autumnal synth pads before dipping into a more stable nighttime-groove towards the end.
