Jamie xx returned to BBC Radio 6 for the second time, spinning a two-hour mix of reworked old favorites as well as newer tracks. During his show of his residency, the UK producer dropped a new remix of King Krule‘s “Neptune Estate” with verses by Ratking‘s Wiki and
Earl Sweatshirt. As Pitchfork points out, he also weaved Nicolas Jaar‘s “Girl” with Missy Elliott‘s “Work It,” Oneohtrix Point Never‘s cover of “I Only Have Eyes For You,” and his collaborative track with Four Tet, “Seesaw,” into his set. Opening his set with DJ Rashad‘s remix of Gil Scott-Heron‘s “Home Is Where the Hatred Is,” Jamie took a moment to honor the late artists, adding “Rest in peace to both of them.” Head over to BBC to hear the mix and check out Wiki and Earl Sweatshirt’s King Krule remix starting at 7:11.
Update: Despite Jamie xx announcing Earl during the program, and the BBC website listing Earl under the track, FakeShoreDrive points out it’s actually Chicago rapper Lucki Eck$ featured on this remix.
