Amidst tours and time in the studio remixing and recording material, Jamie Smith, of London's the xx, found time to dive into a solo adventure of sorts. He was able to acquire the original sessions for Gil Scott-Heron's I'm New Here through their shared label, XL Recordings. And Smith has transformed the music within Scott-Heron's thirteenth album, which dropped in February 2010, from dark and jazzy into what's heard on We're New Here. The LP features music that could be played at the dance party of the apocalypse. The dread within Scott-Heron's vocals remains, though here they are chopped up and blended with slightly pulsing production.
