    Default James Blake

    This man deserves his own thread. He's onto something big and will go down as one of the important figures in electronic music. His entire catalog is just simply amazing and he's barely on his first US tour.

    Discuss.

    I've been freaking out for too long Tessa.

    This mans music takes me to places I never knew existed. I haven't been hit this hard by somebody's music since the first time I heard Interpol...

    It's just literally changed my life. It's helped me through so much and I'm probably going to pass out on Monday...

    Couldn't agree more. The Bells Sketch was an eye (ear) opener for me musically, and his album really redefined my conceptions of what music can be. Very much looking forward to the shows next week.

    For those unaware, James Blake also puts out bootleg reworkings of hip hop, rap, and r&b tracks under the name Harmonimix. Some artists that he has reworked include Outkast, Snoop Dogg, Quasimoto, Lil Wayne, and Destiny's Child.

    The Harmonimixes are amazing.

    Much respect for this artist but apparently his shows on this tour are only 30 mns. At least that was the case with his Toronto show last Saturday. 30 freakin minutes! Can you imagine? I'd feel ripped off big time.

    Maybe L.A. will get lucky and get longer sets.

    Could someone post a link to the Harmonimix reworkings? The file I found only has two of them. A link shouldn't be a problem, since it's just a remix and not an album download or anything.

    Jesus, that show sounds terrible. The whole deal with the venue/line then to get stuck with a short performance. I have been looking for tickets for the Seattle show but I don't know... gonna try to find out if other cities got a real show because between his album and ep's there is no way he should play for only 30 minutes.

    Who associates him with dubstep? He's associated with post-dubstep because the music he makes is post-dubstep. Maybe you should do some research on what that is.

    He has released a number of EPs and done quite a few remixes.

    One album, four extended players (if you count the 3-track single of "A Wilhelm Scream"), a single, and a handful of remixes. He just keeps releasing stuff and none of it has been bad. Some of it gets boring after a while but it's all worth listening to or at least checking out.

    Also, is he or is he not doing that after show at Som bar this Sunday?

    It's listed on the Som Bar website, so I'd go with "yes."

    So then a half hour of him doing slow-burners is great. 'Cause then we'll all move over to Som Bar and get trashed while he plays those dubstep dance numbers.

    I've just learned of him and another similar artist named Jamie Woon.
    Both have great r&b-esque voices along with electronic music.
