I can’t front, music by the XX tends to make me a little sleepy (or slightly down). Not taking anything away from their talent, but their super down-tempo vibe just doesn’t do it for me on most days. But I just came across this awesome remix to their song “Crystalized” and finally, I have an XX song that can happily slap in my headphones.
Producer and fellow Brit Jamie Jones’ gave their 2009 single a nice groove-house update making it much more likable than its predecessor. A common trend in remixes for 2010. I must note, that the original was always one of few that I could bare with – but the Booty Mix blends exceptionally well with Romy Madley Crofts beautiful voice. Her voice although at times can lead me directly to the sandman is one of my favorites in the industry. Peep the song below.[audio:http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Crystalised-Jamie-Jones-Booty-Mix.mp3|titles=Crystalised (Jamie Jones’ Booty Mix)]
