There is no doubt that Jamie Smith of The xx belongs to the short list of the sought-after producer in the music industry these days. The London native intends to take the level of his steadily growing reputation even higher as he revealed he is currently engineering a new instrument based on both an MPC sequencer and an iPad. In a conversation of his band with The Observer, he stated the device will be see-through and create music through "colourful graphics conjured with the same finger taps that make his music." It sure will take some time until we get to hear the first sounds from this instrument, but The xx's upcoming highly anticipated sophomore album Coexist is due September 10.
