Listen: James Blakes Remixes D’Angelo

6 Feb

During a guest DJ spot on BBC Radio 1 this past weekend, James Blake celebrated the return of neo-soul artist D’Angelo by remixing his Voodoo single “Left & Right.” The remix was made under Blake’s Harmonimix moniker, under which he has remixed the likes of Snoop Dogg and Destiny’s Child. The remix is a fantastic reworking of the original, adding hazy effects and vocal manipulation akin to much of Blake’s work, so give it a listen below. During the DJ set, Blake also mentioned that he is currently working on his sophomore LP, with a possibility of its release by the end of 2012.

The release will feature the title track as the a-side, and “At Birth” and “Curbside” as the b-sides.

James Blake Announces Yet Another EP

22 Oct

After releasing his Enough Thunder EP only a few weeks ago, you’d think James Blake would take a little bit of a break, but that’s not the case. It seems Blake is working on another EP that is set for release in December. Blake himself didn’t announce the EP, rather R&S Records announced it via their Twitter account and through a fairly vague Facebook post.

Here’s to yet another James Blake news frenzy.

The song is called “Fear To Fear,” and while there is no news on whether or not it will be officially released, it’s still a nice treat for a Wednesday. You can listen to the song in the player below.

Somehow, someway, James Blake manages to keep his name in the limelight. After releasing his debut album last year, the UK artist has kept the momentum going, whether it’s his extensive touringcollaborating with indie darling Bon Iver, and, more recently, announcing his upcoming EP titled Enough Thunder. The EP will include Blake and Bon Iver’s collaboration, titled “Fall Creek Boys Choir,” Blake’s cover of Joni Mitchell’s “A Case Of You,” as well as four original compositions. Yesterday, we got a taste of Blake’s original compositions with a live version of “Once We All Agree,” and today, we got another live version of one of those original tracks. The title track from the upcoming EP was played live for KCRW, and you can listen to it in its entirety below.
