The xx – “Islands (CHLLNGR remiXX)”

By brandon / March 8, 2010

As suggested by last week’s the Very Best/Florence collision and Nosaj Thing before that, etc., the xx’s spacious hush makes them an easy remix target: Their sound leaves a ton of room for folks to squeeze in their own interpretations, so a ton of folks have … That said, CHLLNGR, aka California-to-Copenhagen multi-instrumental producer Steve Borth, is the first to cheekily label his take a “remiXX.” Two Points. The song he selected is “Islands,” a more than fitting title for someone who references King Tubby, Scientist, and Prince Jammy (in addition to Burial, Prefuse 73, and Boards Of Canada) as influences.

Investigate CHLLNGR at MySpace. And expect more sounds via Green Owl.
