Yet Another Ridiculously Limited xx Remix



I'm not sure why The xx insist on releasing 12" remixes in extremely limited runs as they can't make that much money from them. The only people I see profiting from this are the scumbags who buy the releases and immediately put them up on Discogs and Ebay at inflated prices.

Anyway, last month saw the release of three new remixes by who I take to be hip new producers from Germany as the twelve came out on Berlin label Innervisions. All are quite different from the Four Tet and John Talabot mixes that we have come to expect. They are sparse,  rather minimal and absolutely brilliant.

I may actually be talking pish in the first paragraph, it looks lik this has had a repress as there seem to be loads of copies out there at a quite reasonable price.

If you are interested in Ame's work you could try listening to their 'Rej' track and its various remixes, especially the Dixon edit.
BTW, I'm getting really worried about TVV: the blog has been removed.. any info about that?

I hadn't noticed. I just thought that Jim had given up for a few days. I will try and contact him to find out what is going on.

Oh, and thanks for the tip Luca.
