Four Tet Remixes The xx's “Angels”
Listen to his delicate reconstruction
After the flood of unofficial reinterpretations of The xx's “ Angels”, most of which the world could easily do without, yesterday Four Tet's remix was debuted on Huw Stephens' BBC Radio 1 show. Kieran Hebden, who already made a brilliant remix of their “ VCR”, remains true to the intimate moods of the song, and wraps Romy Madley-Croft’s desolate vocal parts in humid clouds, brittle melodies, and distant rhythms. A new winner, for which at this point there is no official release date, but which will likely be put out alongside a remix by Jamie xx of a track by Four Tet himself. Watch this space.
