All remixes of The XX have been consistently great. The most recent one to surface by the Manchester producer Synkro has a bit of a house edge and definitely that Northwest UK ambient sound. The original Night Time is a moving piece by itself. Throwing some electronic drums over the track, yet maintaining The XX's reverb guitar and Romy's soft and smooth vocals, Synkro delivers a a solid piece of work.
