Jamie xx was recently commissioned by fashion house Kenzo to soundtrack its Menswear Fall/Winter 2013 show, and now Opening Ceremony has shared the xx beatmaker's nine-and-a-half mix (via FACT). The smoky sax and bass opening quickly dissipates into a hail of drum-roll beats, punctuated by glimmering piano notes, and then morphs into a blend of techno pulse and hiccupping vocals. The master remixer keeps things mouthy, calling on a collection of dismissive audio clips ("I don't even want to hear it," leads to a less patient-sounding, "I don't have time to play these games,") for the remainder of the piece.

Watch footage of the runway show up above and hear the entire mix below.
