[Watch] Jamie xx's Edit of The xx's "Sunset" Gets a Video

Jamie xx's eerie, droning remix of the Coexist track "Sunset" gets accompanying visuals, taking footage from French television channel Melody. It focuses on old footage of a lone dancer, contorting across the dancefloor as the remix pushes forward with a relentless bassline and echoing percussion. I can't explain why, but something about this video really adds to the depth of the song. Watch it below.

[Listen] Jamie xx Remixes The xx's "Sunset"

Jamie xx does some reworking of his own (well, mostly his own) material, changing up The xx track "Sunset". While keeping the vocals of Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim in tact, Jamie extends the song by nearly double its original length, adding in an incredibly catchy bassline, sweeping synthesized drones, and a slew of solid drum machine effects. The result is a much clubbier track than the original, but in no way is that a negative. Check it out below and let us know what you think of Jamie's rework, and for comparison we've also included a stream of the original.
