Recent superstar of the “post-dubstep” genre and United Kingdom resident, James Blake has been creating some of the most interesting new electronic music. And this EP showcases his ability to wobble and warp beats and samples from all kinds of genres, including 90’s era R&B…there are some Aaliyah samples in floating around in here. James Blake is young, but dude is well on his way of perfecting his own sound and style. The production and dynamics of the tracks are all over the place with start-stop drums, pitch-shifted vocals and bass from the 4th dimension. You have to check this one out.
