Jamie xx is best known for his work with the English indie pop band, the xx. He is a record producer, DJ, and remixer, creating electronic, dubstep, house, and even some trap beats. He’s described as being the “driving force” behind the popularity of the xx, producing airy and electronic beats for the band and always having a few spotlight moments in the xx’s live shows. Often lesser known is his own solo music. Jamie xx has released two studio albums, We’re New Here and In Colour, both of which were successful and climbed electronic charts both in the U.S. and UK.
He has recently worked with artists Romy, Young Thug, and Popcaan, expanding the variety in his sound and his listeners, and adding to his growth as an artist as he further develops his individual artistry outside of the band. His own sound deviates from the xx by being more upbeat, uplifting, and energetic. He has recently played a number of his own events, including playing at the Boiler Room, and is known for having exhilarating and intricate live sets. Jamie xx is part of the explosive lineup for Day for Night Festival this year, alongside headliners Nine Inch Nails, Thom York, St. Vincent, Pretty Lights, and many more. You won’t want to miss the chance to see him and several other incredible artists this year at Houston’s own music festival. Click here for tickets and check out his Soundcloud below.
