Oliver Sim and Jamie xx,  producer of Sim’s debut solo album Hideous Bastard, have joined forces for the release of a Jamie xx remix of “GMT”. Jamie has only ever released a handful of official remixes (for the likes of Radiohead, Adele, Four Tet and Florence and The Machine) and, on his first remix in over five years, he stretches the Brian Wilson-sampling original into a ten minute dancefloor track. Featuring additional production from Floating Points, it’s been a highlight of Jamie’s recent shows around the world.

Sim’s debut album Hideous Bastard, a collection of songs inspired by his love of horror movies and his own life experience, is set for release September 9 via Young. Sim has so far shared several tracks—“Romance with a Memory,” “Fruit”, “GMT” and “Hideous,” a song that features lifelong hero Jimmy Somerville on guest vocals. Music from the album will also soundtrack the forthcoming queer horror short film “Hideous,” starring Sim and directed by Yann Gonzalez, which made its world premiere as part of the Semaine de la Critique at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Hideous film, which features appearances from a variety of queer icons including singer-songwriter Jimmy Somerville,
drag queen Bimini as well as Jamie xx, will be available to stream exclusively on MUBI from 8th September. However fans can catch an early glimpse of the film at a series of special fan screenings. Full dates and signup details below.
