Biography

London, United Kingdom

Jamie Smith (known by the stage name Jamie xx) is an English music producer and remix artist. He is a member of the London-based band The xx.

In 2007, Smith joined The xx accompanying old school friends Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim, Baria Qureshi from the Elliott School, notable for alumni including Hot Chip, Burial and Four Tet. The band’s first album ‘xx’ was released in August 2009 and went on to become platinum in the UK.

Jamie went on to produce a series of remixes of songs by Gil Scott-Heron from his 2010 album I’m New Here. The first remix single ‘NY Is Killing Me’, credited to Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx, aired on radio stations across the UK and Europe in late 2010, followed by ‘I’ll Take Care of U’ in January 2011. Both singles drew a lot of attention by the public and critics and set the way for a 13-track remix album entitled ‘We’re New Here’, out February 21, 2011 on the XL Recordings label and produced entirely by Jamie xx. ‘We’re New Here’ received very positive critical acclaim and was named “a masterpiece in its own right” by BBC’s Ele Beattie.

On June 6th, he released the single ‘Far Nearer / Beat For’, which was met with strong critical acclaim.

    'It's funny how this album got a bit of a bad rap when it came out a month ago but having listened to it thoroughly now you realise just how tight the music is. I guess I'm a converted sceptic.' the fuck. 9.3 bnm... this is a critically acclaimed album. it's being treated as the best thing since sliced bread

    I think Jamie XX sums up his own album with this sample "It was good, you know what I mean, but we never used to rave to it"

    Very disappointing album; totally not in line with his previous releases.

    i wouldn't say what he's been doing as a solo artist is better than the xx stuff it's just different. if it comes to music you have no right to judge whether it's stunning or poor, mindblowing or it just sucks cause whether music touches you or does not it's a matter of your taste, sensitivity and shit you've been through.
