    James Blake

    James Blake:

    His self titled debut album, released on February 7th, promises to change the game forever.

    The past couple of years have seen creative explosions and new generations coming through in both dancefloor electronics and heartfelt, introspective singer-songwriting, but self evidently they’ve remained mutually exclusive genre islands. Until now. With a uniquely emotional electronic production style every bit as deeply personal and impassioned as his voice or songwriting, James Blake is sketching out his own totally unique place in the musical universe.

    Although loosely tethered to the cutting edge of contemporary electronics, James’s songs possess uncommon grace and soulfulness. Whether intended for the FWD>> dancefloor or, like new single ‘Limit to Your Love’, destined to melt hearts and prick ears, his music is characterised by a playful and arresting honesty, a human touch that, despite his status as a hugely in-demand DJ, naturally aligns him with contemporary artists such as Bon Iver or Laura Marling or the xx.

    Yet more than this, it is the shock of the new in James’s music that’s causing real commotion: the sounds, that voice, the silence, the rhythm (or lack of it), the waiting, the tension. You have to know the rules in order to break them with such conviction, and by daring to be different, James stands head and shoulders above his peers. No doubt, you’ll remember where you were when you heard tracks like ‘Limit to Your Love’ or ‘I Never Learnt to Share’ for the first time.

    That's funny because when I first clicked on the thread I was thinking why is there a thread about a tennis player in the music forum. You're right though. Ole James has smokin cakes!

    Re: James Blake

    U.K. dance music subgenres don't usually produce soulful singer-songwriters – there was no Marvin Gaye of grime, no Bill Withers of Balearic house. But in James Blake, the squish-grooved London club throb called dubstep just got its very own emotive song stylist. Blake uses neosoul keyboards, blip beats and layered snips of his heart-starved warbling to create softly roiling slow jams. Like Radiohead, Blake's sonic empty spaces highlight human distance: His cover of Feist's "Limit to Your Love" dangles lyrics about a dying relationship above trip-hop fizz, and when he does inch toward happiness on "Wilhelm Scream," he makes finding true love sound like entering a void. "All that I know is I'm falling," he sings over a swirl of black digitalia. Yep, falling right into the mystic.

    Miadu, you sound like this singer's publicity agent!

    He has a lot of vibrato which makes me think he has insufficient breath control. Small diaphragm? Forced. and harming his own vocal chords

    Re: James Blake

    Last Wednesday, James Blake posted the following message to his Twitter: "24th August 2011 - James Blake & Bon Iver 'Fall Creek Boys Choir'". It is now August 24, and BBC Radio 1 has premiered the track. Listen to it below:

    According to a press release, "Over the past year James has cited Justin as a key influence and it was via a chance meeting at this years SXSW festival in Austin, Texas that the seed was sown for a future collaboration." The track was "formed in the spring over email." It features Justin Vernon on vocals and James Blake on production. It will be available on iTunes on August 29.

    At the bottom of the Youtube page for the song, it says, "Enough Thunder - Oct 2011". "Enough Thunder" is the name of a new track Blake has been performing live recently. No other info is available now.

    Re: James Blake

    When he's not off collaborating with Bon Iver, James Blake is making music on his own, you know? You probably did know. The young Prince of Dubstep has just confirmed the release of some new material, too, in the form of an EP. It's called Enough Thunder and will be released through Atlas on October 10.

    It actually does include the Bon Iver collaboration (which can be heard below) as well as his cover of Joni Mitchell's 'A Case Of You'. The remaining four tracks are James Blake originals. So that's something to look forward to.

    There's also a few additional James Blake tour dates coming up. Have a look where and when they are below:

    November:
    25 - Leeds, University
    26 - Manchester, Warehouse Project
    29 - Bristol, Anson Rooms
    30 - London, The Forum

    James Blake - Not Long Now

    James Blake's Enough Thunder EP comes out October 10 via Atlas. You've heard the Bon Iver collaboration "Fall Creek Boys Choir" above.

    Another cut from the EP, "Not Long Now", has made it out there after being played on Gilles Peterson's BBC Radio 1 show last night. Listen below:

    Stream the New James Blake EP

    Back in February when James Blake first covered Joni Mitchell’s ‘A Case of You’, he told Zane Lowe that she was an artist he’d always loved and hinted that he might try her style of songwriting in the future. But, while the song features on his new EP ‘Enough Thunder’, it’s not all Mitchell style warbling. There’s the much mocked collaboration with Bon Iver for starters, plus three more tracks. ‘Once We All Agree’ is slow and sparse (a spare album track, perhaps?), ‘We Might Feel Unsound’ is spooky, loopy gospel, Not Long Now glitches its way over more than 5 minutes and the title track has Blake pour out his achey breaky heart. But what do you think? Listen to the full EP and check out November tour dates, below.

    Friday 25th November – University – Leeds
    Saturday 26th November – Warehouse Project – Manchester
    Tuesday 29th November – Anson Rooms – Bristol
    Wednesday 30th November – The Forum – London

    JAMES BLAKE PLOTS MORE BON IVER COLLABORATIONS, 'AGGRESSIVE' NEW ALBUM



    Dubstep-inspired singer-songwriter James Blake recently took time off to "hibernate" and collect his thoughts for the first time since his cover of Feist's 'Limit to Your Love' propelled him to stardom in early 2011, earning the young artist a Mercury Prize nomination and a relentless tour schedule.

    Amidst his accolades and achievements, the soft-spoken, somewhat unwitting face of U.K. dubstep ran afoul of the American media late last year when he criticized the genre's fan base, claiming that "certain producers -- who I can't even be bothered naming -- have definitely hit upon a sort of frat-boy market where there's this macho-ism being reflected in the sounds and the way the music makes you feel."

    As Blake prepared to the share the stage with avant-garde legends Philip Glass, Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson at the 22nd Annual Tibet House Benefit at Carnegie Hall, we spoke with him about working with Bon Iver, his "aggressive" new album, and his current feelings about dubstep in the U.S.

    So what are you working on these days?


    I've been doing lots of things. Mainly just trying to use the time to be relaxed and away from everything that tour brings, which is normally a sort of unrest in your inner soul [laughs]. You're constantly away, and the musical part of you, which is pretty much most of me, really, is only really half being stimulated, if you know what I mean. The ideas are quite hard to come by, which is why you see a lot of acts having real problems after that touring period, adjusting back to life, because when you're on the road, it feels like every idea is convoluted. But then, when you get back from tour, you've got some head space. It's all about head space.

    Speaking of which, we heard that you're working on some "clubby" new songs.

    I have been. A lot of the vocal music I've been doing recently has been quite clubby. But that's mainly because I've had more time to go to clubs, and that normally breeds that kind of influence. I've been doing quite a few DJ sets recently, which have been really fun.

    Cool, and what are you veering towards for the new record? Is it more contemplative or dance-floor oriented?

    I think it's going to be a bit more aggressive, to be honest. It seems that way. I don't feel more aggressive, it's just been ... it's just how I feel. In terms of writing more club tracks, writing more electronically influenced -- I feel like it was all electronically influenced, but now that influence has come to me in a different way.

    James Blake Talks About His 'Overgrown' Album, His Growth and Huge Fan Kanye West

    The jury’s out on whether James Blake—whose second album, “Overgrown,” is due April 9 through Atlas/Republic—will ever be a star in the United States. But several prominent music icons are already on a first-name basis with the English singer/songwriter/producer, thanks to his trippy amalgam of R&B and woozy electronica.

    “Kanye [West] has been very supportive,” Blake says from his hotel room in Austin, where he returned for another performance at South by Southwest this year. In a behind-the-scenes YouTube clip from Jay-Z and West’s 2011 Watch the Throne tour, Blake is seen hanging out with the two rappers.

    “[West] played one of my tunes to a lot of people in the room. I’m very flattered by it.” According to Blake, West clued Stevie Wonder to his music as well. “I couldn’t help thinking how much the box had opened when I found out Stevie had heard one of my [old] tunes,” he says. “Some tune I put out at 18 that probably sold 5,000 copies. You never know where it’s going to end up.”

    But A-list fans don’t necessarily translate into fans elsewhere. Blake’s self-titled 2011 debut LP only reached No. 123 on the Billboard 200. And while Republic co-president Avery Lipman says it’s nearing 500,000 records sold worldwide, North America accounts for just 65,000 of that, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

    Lipman hopes old-fashioned word-of-mouth—fueled by tastemakers on social

    Media—will continue to make his job easier. “Let’s face it,” he says, “relatively speaking, he’s still completely unknown. [But] other popular artists today are, in essence, broadcasters. The biggest of the big artists are starting to recognize him and be vocal about him. That can be very impactful with things like Twitter. Words travel.”

    Luckily, West hasn’t been the only person helping get the word out. Blake’s sullen “The Wilhelm Scream” was featured in a dramatic closing scene in an episode of HBO’s “Entourage,” helping make the single his biggest selling yet, moving 36,000 copies and peaking at No. 36 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Songs chart.


    Another possible workaround for bigger exposure: a brand using his music in an ad. Blake claims “there are quite a lot” of offers on the table, but says Brits are more weary of such deals. “People are a lot more ready to see artists do big promotion like that in America,” he says. “It’s easier to do that here and get away with it and not feel like you’ve sold out or whatever.”

    In the end, however, for “Overgrown” to achieve the top 10 debut Lipman hopes for—a goal he admits is “ambitious”—the music is going to have to speak for itself.

    It’s certainly saying plenty about one particular topic: love. Blake sang a bit about it on his debut, but had yet to fully experience the feeling for himself. That’s changed.

    “I’ve grown up more in the past two years than ever in my life,” he says. “’Overgrown’ sounds like an album written by somebody who has had love. It’s just something I have more in common with people now that I didn’t before.”

    Many of the songs begin sparsely, with him singing over piano—where they go from there is anyone’s guess. Blake’s thick, quivering voice swells into soulful coos while synths whiz past on lead single “Retrograde,” then transforms into ghostly wails as cowbells and sirens dance around him on “Voyeur.” Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA delivers a half-rap, half-poem on “Take a Fall for Me,” while Brian Eno co-produces the gloomy “Digital Lion.”

    “I’m working with an endlessly replenished palette,” Blake says. “The sounds I like to use are kind of endless because they’re just noises."

    Blake will take his new sonics on the road stateside starting April 16 in San Francisco. There are already small but promising signs of momentum: He rocked New York’s 1,500-capacity Webster Hall in 2011; in May he’ll fill Terminal 5, a 3,000-seater. “Retrograde,” meanwhile, has sold 11,000 copies five weeks in—his fastest-selling single yet—and its video is nearing 1.6 million YouTube views.

    Numbers aside, Blake’s personal goal for “Overgrown” is that it’s remembered. To him, all other measures are flawed. “There’s no indicating factor anymore,” he says. “You can’t really go on YouTube hits, because people buy them. You can’t really rely on record sales because people don’t buy them. And you don’t get paid by Spotify. I made [this album] for myself,” he adds. After all, as he’s learned, “It could end up anywhere.”

    James Blake, Live In Concert

    Watch the singer perform 90 minutes of breathtakingly emotional music, recorded live at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. Unpredictable and often mysterious, Blake's songs are intense and riveting, hopeful and thoughtful.
