It's an unlikely pairing, this collaboration between Gil Scott-Heron (an icon of '70s black radicalism) and Jamie xx (a white, British, twentysomething dance-music producer). Reworking Scott-Heron's 2010 album I'm New Here, Jamie xx builds new tracks around texts and songs by the elder statesman of spoken word. Stylistically, it ranges from hip-hop to the low-end lurch of dubstep and U.K. bass music; Scott-Heron's gravelly voice proves the perfect foil for his remixer's broken beats and air of elegant decay.
