Rising to international prominence as a core member of Mercury Prize winning band The xx, Jamie xx has gone on to craft a name for himself as one of the world's hottest producers. His brilliant 2011 track 'Far Nearer' and remixes for the likes of Adele, Radiohead and Gil Scott-Heron became underground hits, while his remix of Drake and Rhianna's 'Take Care' was a worldwide #1 and The xx remix of Florence & The Machine's 'You've Got The Love' was also a massive internet sensation.
The xx - Oliver Sim, Romy Madley Croft and Jamie Smith (Jamie xx) - formed in 2005 at London's Elliot School, the alma mater of notable alumni Hot Chip, Burial and Four Tet. Bonding over a shared love of dark, emotive 80s guitar sounds and the high-end sheen of American R&B, The xx's unique sound befits a band whose wide range of influences combine beautiful, hushed vocal duets and a brilliantly inventive use of samples and low-end frequencies to produce stark, sweet, melancholic pop.
The xx's debut album xx, released in August 2009, achieved gold sales in Australia, platinum sales in the UK, and accumulated over 1.3 million sales worldwide. The album has also been awarded the highly prestigious Mercury Music Prize, The Guardian's First Album Award, Album of the Year by both Rough Trade Shops and XFM, and two South Bank and one NME Award nominations. The xx will release their second album Coexist this September through Remote Control / Young Turks.
