VIDEO: Jamie XX remixes the Newsnight theme tune, wonders what you did with your day

Jamie Smith/The XX

Newsnight, to those of the American persuasion, is a British news program which is broadcast at night. CLEVER TITLE RIGHT? Alongside it being both of those things it also has a theme tune which sounds a little something like this (well, actually, a lot like that. Because that is a link to the theme tune). So what does any upstanding remixer who finds himself with more than just a little time on his hands do? Well, he breaks out the laptop and gets to work turning it into a blissed out, fucked up slice of former quality broadcasting music. Needless to say, it’s reasonably high on the patented this-is-cool-you-should-hear-it scale and you should listen to it over and over and over again while rocking back and forth, you psychopath.
