Check out the XL label boss remixing Jamie T

Label head honcho and rave producer Richard Russell takes to the boards to rework Jamie T's new track

First thing about Jamie T you read is that he took a five-year break between his last album 2009 and his 2014 return. Second thing you read is that he has soundtracked a generation when he bowled onto the scene in 2007. The really great thing though, is that he's still playing the songs that make people wanna dance and singing words that fit this moment like a glove. 

Here's a thing! Richard Russell – the man who founded XL in the 90s, and launched the careers of everyone from the Prodigy to the xx – is also A Very Talented Producer. In fact, that's how he got started, making rave bangers like Kicks Like A Mule's “The Bouncer”, and, more recently, getting behind the boards for Gil-Scott Heron's I'm New Here, Bobby Womack's The Bravest Man In The Universe and Damon Albarn's solo record. 

His new production project is RLR. It launched with a handprinted Lee Scratch Perry / RLR 12" – which was only available in return for a non-monetary gift, like a 21st century version of swapsies. The latest is a remix of Jamie T's “Don't You Find”, taken from the London singer's new EP Magnolia Melancholia.
