Heard this tune by James Blake yesterday for the first time, on Radio 1 of all places, and completely fell in love with it. It’s a cover of a track originally by Fiest.
I absolutely love the feeling of space that he’s created, there’s a mournful edge to it initially but wierdly the sub-bass and the way the track builds yields to an almost comforting, yet still dark feeling (which for some reason reminds me of dancing to the dub sound systems at Notting Hill Carnival).
Each time I hear this is totally blows me away, brilliantly covered, performed and produced. And a great video too.
Oh and if you like your production/ sounds then definitely listen to this one on a system with some serious bass, or some good headphones!
