Kid Smpl Remixes The xx’s “Fiction”
In a sense, Kid Smpl’s remix of The xx’s “Fiction” demarcates the logical furthest extent of the London trio’s vision. It’s made up almost entirely of infrequent, out of breath kicks, melancholy keys and atmospheric found sounds. Rommy’s vocals are pushed so far into the mix that they almost operate as random found sounds and the beat (when there is one) is as airy and atmospheric as they come. Without expectations, Smpl has crafted an effortlessly beatific night time anthem that achieves more with less and might remind some listeners why they fell in love with The xx in the first place.
