Always an interesting listen to put my ears to James Blake always come out with something different, and his latest single Retrograde is no exception. I love his dark with with beats and melodies mixed with the most stunning of vocals that you just want to turn the lights down low and embrace in the moment. The way it builds, the way the drones come out this is the perfect midnight hour track that just shows what a great talent James Blake is to British music.
I first heard of James Blake when my mum bought me the 2011 Ministry of Sound Summer Festival album and was hooked on his song CMYK for blooming ages. Completely different to Retrograde who says that music needs to stay consistent, he’s got one of those voices that is recognisable no matter what the genre and it’ll be interesting to see what he does next. Producer, artist, visionary, what a man!
