Pretty much everyone into contemporary indie music knows that The xx has some serious chops, and gradually, it’s becoming ever-apparent that at least one of the band’s three members has his own solo chops, too. Jamie xx has been showing us what he’s made of with his upcoming single for Numbers and a couple of choice remixes, including this new jam for Nosaj Thing‘s forthcoming Drift Remixed record. This re-work of “Fog” is a spooky, shuffling, and off-kilter bass tune that alternates between a sluggishly staggering pace and subtly spirited mood. On his production, Jamie xx keeps true to the original’s cavernous sounds and those arpeggiating melodies that are so reminiscent of the “Castle Theme” from Super Mario Bros. (via Pitchfork)
