A slight remix that's a total transformation

- Jan 3, 2013

It's always something of an event when Jamie xx does a mix, because who doesn't enjoy getting a glimpse of the future every now and then? And as if to lend himself a hand for when he's on the wheels of steel, he's released a slightly remixed, extended version of “Sunset,” originally from his band The xx's new album Coexist. The bassline gets fleshed out into something more mischievous, occasionally interrupted by some always atmospheric filter sweeps that help drain the melancholic abscess of the original. The measured restructuring somehow totally transforms the song into a chrome-plated soundtrack for $15 dollar cocktails and 4AM last call.
