This Song is Hot! Take a listen to Jamie xx "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)" ft. Young Thug & Popcaan
Jamie xx is set to have a big year. Working with and without his Mercury Music Prize-winning group the xx, Jamie xx established himself as a forward-thinking beatmaker and producer. Born Jamie Smith in Putney, London, he began his musical career playing the drums, but after realizing he couldn't use his innovation skills on the instrument, he instead turned to the '80s Media Production Centre, which programmed his computer-based sounds onto electronic percussion pads, allowing him to play both live and in the studio. In 2008, he teamed up with former school friends Oliver Sim, Romy Madley Croft, and Baria Qureshi to form the xx, who signed to XL subsidiary Young Turks a year later and went on to record one of the most well-received albums of the decade with their self-titled debut.
He is able to get Young Thug and Popcaan together on "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)". This song won't be getting old anytime soon, and is one the perform songs to start off the summer!
