Not content with just the one remix of Jamie xx’s soulful banger ‘Loud Places’, John Talabot has returned with a second.

This time dubber the ‘Higher Dub edit’, it sees the producer take xx’s track and extend it out to ten minutes of unifying, soulful electronics. It’s a far cry from his last edit of the track, July’s ‘Synth Reconstruction’, which took on a far more abrasive tint. Both versions retain that chilling Romy Madley-Croft vocal though.

The ‘Higher Dub’ edit is set for release as one half of a white label on both John and Jamie’s label, Young Turks - eagle-eyed shoppers at this weekend’s Indie Label Market in London will have nabbed the first copies there - while the ‘Synths Reconstruction’ forms the opening track of xx’s August-released ‘Loud Places’ remix EP. Stream the former via Soundcloud below.
