    Been lovin' Gil Scott-Heron for a long time, since the days of "The Last Poets." He has a beautiful voice and a musically creative mind.... And this is a new discovery for me... Rare, to me! :) Love the affect and the effect. ;)

    @kele_simone: jamie xx has mentioned older Gil Scott-Heron tracks he was remixing before Heron passed away, so 'more' of this project isn't as far fetched as you might think.

    "Great stuff. Kind of like Burial with Gil's voice above it. I like it." <-----hahaha What?! There really isn't much in common between Burial and Jamie's production. They both create some really interesting music (I would certainly say Burial's is significantly more interesting) however there isn't much similar when it comes to composition, the writing and production of the rhythms, the atmospheres of the songs, the mixing and overall production of the songs themselves, you won't find a whole lot they share. Sorry.
