At this moment in time, there’s probably too many xx remixes. Like, if they were physical items, you’d be buried in them, gasping for air, cursing the existence of all remixes ever. It’s understandable though because the xx are great in their austere minimalism, leaving themselves open for new interpretations. Kid Smpl manages to do something new while staying somewhat faithful to the original, taking only the barest architecture of The xx’s “Fiction” and washing it in distant wind and stark piano hits. It’s so minimal it’s almost not even there.
