Mercury Prize nominee also joins forces with his xx bandmates for three song set on Radio 1
Jamie xx teamed up with Four Tet and Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa to perform a series of tracks from his recent album ‘In Colour’ yesterday (November 18).
The Mercury Prize nominee also appeared alongside his bandmates Romy and Oliver on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 Show for a set which included ‘Loud Places’, ‘Stranger In A Room’, and ‘Seesaw’. You can listen to the show here.
Jamie xx recently featured on Annie Mac’s recent album ‘Annie Mac Presents 2015’.
The LP features contributions from big name artists including Disclosure, The Chemical Brothers, Mark Ronson and as well as ‘Where Are Ü Now?’, the collaboration between Diplo, Skrillex and Justin Bieber.
Jamie xx is the NME readers’ favourite to win the Mercury Prize this year.
The xx drummer is the bookies’ joint favourite to win the 2015 award along with Florence + The Machine, but in an NME poll of who readers would like to see take home the accolade, the electronic musician’s solo debut ‘In Colour’ has come out on top.
Jamie xx is followed in the poll by Wolf Alice and Slaves, with Gaz Coombes, Florence and Aphex also among the nominees with the most votes.
If Jamie xx wins this year’s award then he’ll become the first musician to win both as a solo artist and with a band, after The xx picked up the Prize in 2010.
