The xx "Angels (Shadow Child Unofficial VIP)"
- Words: Rebecca Bratburd
British producer and Dirtybird affiliate Shadow Child has put a housey spin on one of The xx's recent singles from Coexist, pushing Romy Madley Croft's feathery voice onto the dancefloor alongside his bouncing beat on this "Unofficial VIP" version of "Angels." The juxtaposition between Croft's delicate vocals and Shadow Child's punchy drum patterns works nicely, particularly because he beefs up the original melody with his own thick keyboard riffs.
