According to Sach: “for those keeping score in the bedroom/indie-oriented dubstep sweepstakes, Darkstar>Jamie XX>James Blake>Mount Kimbie. This could push him to the lead though.”  That sounds about right, even though I can’t rank James Blake over Mount Kimbie. It feels a bit arbitrary, and I’m not convinced that they are different people. Have they ever been seen in the same bedroom? Now that Jamie xx is remixing Gil Scott-Heron it’s only a matter of time before he starts collaborating on the next Kanye record. Everyone wins in this circumstance except Bon Iver.
