Skepta’s full remix of Jamie xx has arrived

We heard the first taste of Skepta’s internet-breaking remix of I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) in August and now, grime’s favourite son has finally shared his full version of the Jamie xx hit on BBC Radio 1.

“I wanted to get loads of versions of this song done,” Jamie xx told Radio 1’s Annie Mac – who premiered the full track on her Musical Hot Water Bottle show – about recruiting the fellow Londoner. “Skepta wanted to do a remix and I’ve always admired his production so I just let him do it. I gave him the parts and let him do his thing and it came out great.” Hear it below.

You can catch both Jamie xx and Skepta at FOMO Festival, the new boutique event hitting Brisbane early next year. They’re sharing the bill with the likes of RL Grime, Boys Noize and Flight Facilities at the inaugural edition of the festival on January 6.

Brisbane isn’t the only place to catch either act this New Year’s period – Skepta is also locked in for club shows in Melbourne and Adelaide as well as playing Sydney’s Field Day and Perth’s Origin NYE. Jamie xx, meanwhile, is set to play Lost Paradise and Victoria’s Beyond the Valley.
