I'm not posting this so much for the musical find, though I absolutely adore both Jamie XX's insane remixing skills and Gil's pure talent. I'm posting this because a great man died today, Gil Scott-Heron, a poetic genius and "bluesology" master. A man who dedicated his life to exposing political truths in musical ways, recently releasing an album called "I'm new here" which was thoughtfully remixed by Jamie XX in a dazzling electronic way, have a listen. This is a tribute to him, Gil Heron-Scott and al he has contributed to the creative scene.
