Featuring a Radiohead remix

Jamie xx has taken charge of the Radio 1 'Essential Mix' and previewed some new material.

The rise of Jamie xx has coincided with the disintegration of the dubstep scene. The producer seems to mirror the state of flux which exists in the bass world, with the scene accepting countless new influences.

Taking charge of the Essential Mix on Sunday (August 28th) Jamie xx introduced the set by describing his disillusionment with guitar music. Insisting that he found DJ sets more exciting than performances by a live band, the producer then played a hugely eclectic two hour set on Radio 1.

Opening with Orbital's rave era classic 'Belfast' the producer then brought things down a notch. Playing the Amy Winehouse sampling 'No Good' by Ifan Dafydd, Jamie xx kept things on a post-dubstep tip.

Floating Points is included, while Manchester newcomer Fantastic Mr Fox was placed alongside an instrumental Wiley cut.

Featuring plenty of bass frequencies, Jamie xx chose to play a bootleg version of his 'Far Nearer' cut alongside the DJ Version of his house infused Gil Scott Heron remix 'I'll Take Care Of U'.

The mix ends with a special preview from the producer. Chosen to take part in Radiohead' remix project, Jamie xx decided to drop his re-working of 'The King Of Limbs' cut 'Bloom' as a finale.
