Earlier this week we were treated to another contemporary Wham cover with The xx releasing the surprisingly good ‘Last Christmas’ in their own unique style. I hope that this remix of ‘Chained’ (one of the standout tracks from their most recent album ‘Coexist’) doesn’t pass people by. Spanish producer John Talabot (who released one of the best albums of the year with ‘fIN’) teams up with his frequent collaborator Pional to take that xx sound straight to the dance floor, and the result is just sublime.
Talabot has been touring with the xx this year and is on a solo tour through most of Europe in Spring. The xx are still on tour, hitting the US this week.
