Sunset (Jamie xx Edit) – The xxFebruary 5, 2014
Jamie xx of The xx released this remix of “Sunset” months ago, but only recently was it released for free in order to promote the Laneway Festival. So if you share my money saving strategy of not listening to music you have to pay for, you won’t have heard it yet. While the original was quiet and practically laid back, this remix has a harder driving force from its repetitive bass line. The mood evoked is the wired alertness that can accompany exhaustion after being awake for far too long. This is ideal for playing at the tail end of an all night party. Check it out.
