It's an unlikely pairing-one's a revered spoken word performer known for his fusion of soul and blues, while the other's a young producer/musician who's a member of 2009's biggest buzz band (The xx) and remixes 2009's biggest buzz solo act (Florence + the Machine). But when Gil Scott-Heron's raw vocals are paired with Jamie xx's sharply minimalist beats, the result is an enigmatic dance track fit for only the darkest underground clubs.

On February 22nd, Scott-Heron and Jamie xx will release We're New Here, which sees Jamie xx remixing 13 tracks off I'm New Here, Scott-Heron's most recent record. The hard-hitting, darkly-tinged first single, "NY Is Killing Me," is available for download today at boomkat or you can stream the track below.
