2009’s surprise success story, are South London’s masters of understatement The XX. After the XX supported Florence on her sold-out UK tour a plan was hatched for them to remix her cover of Candi Staton’s "You Got The Love". And while she is known for her over-the-top pop moments, the XX’s quiet and whispery approach meant this was always going to be an exciting prospect.
The result? Well, the reaction speaks for itself. Within hours of it’s appearance on the internet, it became Hype Machine’s most popular track. While at time of writing it’s the single most tweeted about song in the world right now. On the airwaves, Zane Lowe and Rob Da Bank have heralded it their remix of the year.
And justifiably so. If you had to pick a track that’s captured the genre-splicing sound of rave in 2009, it’s this. Taking elements of classic 2-step garage, uk funky, and bass-line, with the famous Candi Staton lyrics being mumbled by the male/ female duo of the XX, against Florence’s high-pitched parts, this truly is a remarkable piece of music. For once, believe the hype.
