Jamie xx

Jamie xx got his first turntables when he was 10 years old, a gift from his uncle who used to be a DJ and had an old set of decks in his loft. He started buying records not long after that.

It was the beginning of an education that’s showed no signs of stopping, and he says that vinyl collecting has been a “massive influence” on his approach to both DJing and production. “I listen to so many different genres of music, which I didn’t used to,” he says over the phone from London. “That all comes from my love of buying records.” Read the rest of this page »

Billboard Cover: Lorde on Her ‘Hero’ Kanye West, the ‘Hunger Games’ Soundtrack and Hype-Proofing Her Career

On this mid-October Friday, San Diego State University’s campus looks like a certain kind of college-goer’s paradise: guys in flip-flops and their tanned female counterparts lounge in the sunbaked quad, chatting about weekend plans, while dudes practice mixed martial arts moves on the lawn.
