Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc. (Harmonimix)

Released under his Harmonimix alias, James Blake’s rework of the Gorillaz classic “Feel Good Inc.”, hit a spot I didn’t know existed. Damn, bass chakras. Eerie in the best way possible, this track feels like a dirge through space: so sinister, so satisfying. Gritty textures evoke an air of gloom that echoes through the deeper recesses of mind, […]

James Blake – Life Round Here (Sh?m Bootleg Remix)

The sweepy synths on this track got me swooning. So luscious. So sinister. I am sold. To remix a James Blake track and actually do it well takes not only courage but skill; therefore I’ve got mad respect for Sh?m [Pronounced: Shem-Question-Mark]. Who is he? I don’t know. Maybe some kind of magician. I just can’t help but be completely captivated by […]

Jamie xx – All Under One Roof Raving

Hardcore will never die, but you will. 🙂 On that note, Jamie xx stepped in for Benji B on BBC Radio 1Xtra last week and made for a f@#king phenomenal two hour mix featuring exclusive, unreleased material from some of the sickest producers around these days— James Blake premieres a new track at the 30 minute mark along […]

SOHN et Bowery Ballroom

I’m not alone when I say that last week was remarkably overloaded with talented artists swarming the scene in New York City. Regardless of the rain and foggy overtone that flooded the streets, I still made my way to the sold-out SOHN performance at Bowery Ballroom on the Lower East Side. Having spent the previous […]

Untold – Stop What You’re Doing (James Blake remix)

Suspiria de profundis— translation: sighs from the depths. I’ve been attempting to write about this 2009 Blakean masterpiece for what seems like ages. The truth is that this //shape-shifting paradigm-driftin’\\ synth-clapping-armorphous glob of pleasure is the musical embodiment of what it means to Stop, Drop, and Roll. Quantum like whoa, waves of sweet infinite bliss […]

The Bamboos Feat. Megan Washington – The Wilhelm Scream

I’m writing in the midst of an absolutely sweltering heat wave. People on the streets of New York City are looking at each other in disbelief. It would be comical if it weren’t so horrifying. On a day like this we all need music to directly lay our sweaty problems to rest. Enter The Bamboos’ […]

James Blake – Retrograde (Finn Pilly Edit)

So, a little birdy dropped James Blake’s latest LP, Overgrown, in my lap yesterday and it’s been filling my apartment speakers and headphones with its lush sound since it finished downloading. I’ve been waiting for this album to drop since “Retrograde” premiered earlier this year. There was something different about the sound of Overgrown’s first […]

James Blake – The Wilhelm Scream (Poindexter Remix)

Today we celebrate 122 years of Idaho’s statehood. I couldn’t believe it either. Was there really a time when Idaho WASN’T a state? Crank the dial and groove to Poindexter’s remix of Blake’s character post-dubstep. Blake certainly has his place and time in moments of my day – a quiet, moon-gazing at dusk or a […]
