James Blake - Voyeur (Dub)

James Blake - Voyeur (Dub)

James Blake's new one is dark, a bit woozy and you can dance to it.

Last night on Radio 1, Benji B played a brand new track by James Blake and now here it is, thanks to those speedy listeners who rip exclusive radio plays so you don’t have to. Voyeur (Dub) is a very James Blake exercise in tension and release that, first, shows his increasing confidence and comfort in using his own voice (the way he pronounces the couplet “floored” and “doors” at the beginning might be the most crisp he’s ever sounded) and, second, is a dance song with a deep house pulse, vibrant synths, synthetic cowbell ticks and everything. It’s forthcoming on Blake’s own label 1-800-Dinosaur, with the non-dub version of the track featured his upcoming second album ‘Overgrown’.

Republic will release ‘Overgrown’ on 8th April.
