'One third of Mercury Award-winning alternative British group The xx, Jamie xx took to BBC 6 Music this last Sunday (February 20) to play a set for 6 Mix filled with songs he’s currently feeling as well as songs that have inspired his productions.
In the middle of his set for 6 Mix, he let go of a glorious fuller 8-minute version of ‘Far Nearer’ – the song he premiered on a previous radio interview in September of last year.'

This is great, can't get enough, absolutely in love with this tune.
Everything that Jamie xx seems to be producing recently seems to be a masterpiece, I can't think of anyone that is making music that comes close to Jamie xx's style. The vocal production together with the steel drums are just hypnotic.
Below is the collobration with Yasmin, recorded at the Boiler Room.
It's a massive remake of a classic, with bucket loads of steel drums thrown in.
