Both of these numbers initially dropped as downloads around the same time as The xx’s 2017 LP I See You. Now brought together for a vinyl pressing, this release serves as a reminder that The xx’s remix catalogue is as strong as their originals. Jamie and Four Tet have both provided impressive entries already - try the latter’s take on ‘VCR’ - and they don’t let the side down here. Jamie’s flip of ‘On Hold’ is par for the course - sweeping and evocative chord progressions, a hypnotic drum take and jacked vocals from his xx bandmates. Four Tet’s version of ‘A Violent Noise’ is a widescreen epic. He locks into one of those weird shuffle-beats that only he knows how to make, daubs it with a tense synth-and-harp lick and finally smothers everything with reverb. Lovely stuff.
