Check Out Jamie xx's BBC Radio 1 Takeover, with John Talabot and James Blake
- Words: Jay Donaldson
Benji B, host of a weekly specialty dance show on BBC Radio 1, was away from the studio yesterday, so fresh off the back of his surprise single for Young Turks, "All Under One Roof Raving," Jamie xx stepped in to host (and called on a formidable roster of guests to accompany him). Starting things off, John Talabot delivered a guest mix of entirely exclusive tracks, and Nick Tasker, who helms the Young Turks sub-label Whities, also made an appearance, previewing forthcoming material for the imprint along with a selection of unreleased tracks from a handful of UK-based labels. Rounding things out, James Blake (pictured above with Jamie xx) turned up to deliver an exclusive "Untitled" track. The full show runs 120 minutes, and can be streamed in full for the next week here, where a complete tracklist can also be found.
