Rejoice, Jamie xx’s amazing ‘On Hold’ remix is finally here
After months of slyly dropping it into his sets, Jamie xx’s remix of ‘On Hold’ has finally been released.
It’s the first official remix from the English producer in over four years, and the first piece of solo music from him since his acclaimed 2015 debut record In Colour. It’s definitely not the first time he’s reworked his band’s tracks, having previously released edits of ‘Sunset’, ‘Basic Space’, ‘Islands’, ‘Reconsider’ and ‘Hot Like Fire’.
The xx were just here in July for a headlining slot at Splendour In The Grass, and they’ll be back again in January next year for a string of shows with Odd Future rapper Earl Sweatshirt and Kelela.
Given that Jamie hasn’t performed in Australia since early 2016, we’re hoping he’ll cut some time out of the band’s touring schedule to play a DJ set or two while he’s here. Listen to his ‘On Hold’ edit below.
