Listen: Jamie xx - Loud Places (Mike Simonetti's Dark Places Remix)

  • Posted 31 months Ago

We don’t share too many remixes here on HUH., so when we do they’re normally pretty special. Mike Simonetti has just released one which is just that, the former Italians Do It Better man and current 2MR head honcho (along with Captured Tracks’ Mike Sniper) has worked his magic on Jamie xx’s "Loud Places" ft. Romy. The track was recently reworked by the excellent John Talabot, but Simonetti’s effort completely transforms the track, offering something very different to both the original and Talabot’s version. All of Jamie xx’s bubbly production has gone, replaced by sinister synth sounds and pulsating drums which accompany Romy Madley Croft’s soft vocal. Take a listen to it and grab a free download below.
