Jamie xx loves music. One would hope that is the case for every artist, but it’s rare to hear it communicated so distinctly as in the music of the British DJ, The xx band member, remixer and producer Jamie Smith. His music always seems to be in a conversation with every record he ever loved, with every track he ever spun. Be it soul, disco, doo-woop, grime, rave, dubstep or hip-hop – Jamie xx has collected a vast bank of memories that he carefully pieces together to create something that feels timeless and strikingly contemporary – all at the same time. We are invited to experience music in the way that Jamie xx experiences music and that is a true gift.


Following his remix of Gil-Scott Heron song ‘NY Is Killing Me’ and its positive reactions, an entire album of remixes called ‘We’re new here’ in 2011. The same year, Jamie xx also released the song ‘Far Nearer’. In 2015, Jamie xx released his widely acclaimed debut album ‘In Colour’ including songs like ‘Loud Places’, ‘I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)’ and ‘Gosh’. In 2020 he dropped his latest single ‘Idontknow’ all while staying busy DJ:ing, remixing, producing and working on new material with The xx. For everyone that goes to loud places to search for someone to be quiet with, Jamie xx in Slottsskogen will be a spiritual experience.


Jamie xx will be playing on Friday August 12th.
