Gil Scott Heron & Jamie xx

One 2011 record that I am late to getting around to is Jamie xx's reworking of the late Gil Scott Heron's I'm New Here record and released it as We're New Here. This is one of the few times I've ever seen an artist get his work remixed and it actually sounds on par with the original. Jamie xx is not just slapping a new label on the same product, he's able to take Heron's music and re-engineer it into something completely original and fresh. This is a great late night album.
