We're New Here

We're New Here

Producer Jamie xx reimagines Gil Scott-Heron's final album, I'm New Here, as a beguiling electronic experiment; the Englishman’s sleek, shimmery production turns the jazz-funk poet’s raw urban tales into supple grooves. "I'm New Here" sets Scott-Heron’s husky baritone against a bass-heavy backdrop with high-pitched Gloria Gaynor samples, and "Running" rides on choppy breakbeats and steel drums. The fusion's at its finest with the hypnotic dubstep jam "NY Is Killing Me" and the xx-like house cut "I'll Take Care of U."
