James Blake “200 Press”

James Blake has been turnin’ heads and turntables on another level in the past year — catching the ear of some of music’s biggest names from Kanye & Drake to Chance The Rapper. Today, he premieres a new song called “200 Press”, which he says he titled it because only 200 of them will be pressed. The new tune was premiered as part of his 2-hour long, live DJ residency on BBC.

Listen to James Blake “200 Press” at the 31 min. mark here.

I admire the fresh sound — it’s definitely different than much of anything else out (especially for my ears since there’s so much hip hop I’m primarily rockin’). That said, while I vibe with the first minute (especially right at the 32 min. mark) I can only see myself feelin’ the rest in a live, festival setting. Give it a stream for yourself above!
