We're New Here - Jamie xx / Gil Scott-Heron (2011)

So I was pretty excited with the release of Gil Scott-Heron's 2010 album I'm New Here, which is well worth a listen, some great spoken word craziness from the man himself. But Jamie xx's remix of the album released earlier this year as We're New Here (2011) has become a bit of a classic of the moment in my house. There are some awesome tunes on there so check it out.

Needs to be listened to loud. :)
