The Creators Project is an ongoing global arts and technology initiative created by Intel and Vice in order to support visionary artists, musicians, and filmmakers who are using technology to push the bounds of creative expression.
The project includes an online community featuring daily editorial and documentaries, the most recent of which features the man who headlined our 7th Birthday celebrations in Nottingham, Jamie xx.
Since first performing at dollop in 2008 as one quarter of The xx, Jamie Smith has produced hit records for Drake & Rihanna; released his “We’re New Here” collaborative LP with Gil Scott Heron; remixed Radiohead, Adele, FaltyDL & Florence & The Machine; released his debut solo single ‘Far Nearer/Beat For’; won the Mercury Music Prize with The xx and DJ’d all over the world.
With a new XX album in the pipeline The Creators Project managed to grab some time with Jamie to discuss his musical background, production techniques and influences.

Not content with presenting one of the most forward thinking radio shows on the planet, Radio 1′s Benji B also runs one of London’s most successful club nights, Deviation. Back in October the Red Bull Music Academy World Tour came to London, taking over the London Eye for a memorable night of musical entertainment; and Benji and the Deviation gang played host to one of the ‘pods’. In each of the 30 capsules, crucially influential producers, DJs and bands presented the latest upfront London sounds making waves around the globe, and to make the night even more special Benji B performed a DJ set alongside the Deviation String Quartet.
For those of us not lucky enough to have gt hold of one of the fifteen-or-so tickets for the event, the set was recorded and can be viewed in full on Vimeo HD. Highights include their versions of Joy Orbison, MJ Cole, Jay Electronica, Joker & Roy Davis Jr. Seriously special.
Also well worth a watch is Benji B’s recent video interview with David Kennedy for RBMA, where David discusses his musical past (via his productions as Ramadanman, Pearson Sound and most recently Maurice Donovan) and the birth of his label Hessle Audio.
