Here’s some great Monday morning news: The young producer that helped bring us the smooth sounds of The xx, who collaborated with the recently departed Gil Scott-Heron, and whose DJ sets are more or less world-renowned, Jamie xx, dropped his first ever solo release today via Glasgow’s Numbers label. The two-track record features the tropically tinged a-side “Far Nearer” and a moody bass cut called “Beat For” on the flip. You can get more info and purchase your copy of Jamie xx’s 12″ here, and stream the music below. And make sure not to miss the talented DJ/producer when he joins Jackmaster and Spencer on Rinse tomorrow at 11 p.m. GMT (more details on that here).
