Gil Scott-Heron / Jamie xx - "I'll Take Care Of You"


There might not be two people on this earth as different as spoken-word and soul artist Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie Smith of British electro-ambient trio the xx, which makes Smith’s endeavor to remix every song on Scott-Heron’s acclaimed 2010 LP I’m New Here a little surprising. Appropriately, the project is titled We’re New Here, and Smith’s take on album highlight “I’ll Take Care Of U” has been made available. For all this project’s randomness, its fruit is really stunning – sharp piano overlays a throbbing club beat, but the real star is Scott-Heron’s unmistakable, achingly passionate voice. This is but another gem from Jamie xx, following yesterday's incredible twofer, his remix for Adele and his half-hour long mix for BBC Radio 1.
