This Is Our Jam: Four Tet, "Lion (Jamie xx Remix)"

four-tet
Four Tet and Jamie xx are two of the best electronic producers in the world – capable of handling crowds of thousands. But to truly appreciate Jamie xx's rework of "Lion" you have to listen for the details. Taking on Four Tet's uptempo, if stark, original, Jamie xx slows things down with a 2-step beat and applies the cavernous production he's so beautifully mastered with his other band. As the seven-minute track progresses, Jamie introduces rich bass among the skeletal percussion, and later, just a touch of the tropical-tones he still loves. It's a masterful experiment in the geometric sound design, with tones that unfold and reveal themselves as something new. Avoid laptop speakers for this one, and go find yourself a subwoofer.
