Dubstep

James Blake

James Blake – “Cmyk”

James Blake – “I Mind”

James Blake – “Wilhelms Scream”

Dubstep  is aggressive, intense, and compressed. Normally I can only take it in small doses. But then there’s James Blake …a 22 year old producer who has been tearing up London’s exploding dubstep scene for a few years now. His two EPs released in 2010 – Klavierwerke & CMYK – received high praise from Pitchfork and Stereogum, and his self-titled debut album is living up to its hype. His lyrics are soulful and haunting, and his style is abstract and electronic. To me, James Blake marks the beginning of an evolved, refreshing post-dubstep sound.
