James Blake “200 Press”
Gather around the beat like a campfire.
James Blake continued his BBC Radio 1 residency last night, which he’s been known to use as a platform for sharing exclusive tracks and remixes. That theme continued last night, when he shared a new track called “200 Press.” When asked why the track is titled “200 Press,” Blake said that it’s because “only 200 are going to be pressed up.”
“200 Press” finds Blake exploring darker territory, featuring a clanging beat and a recurring vocal sample calling for all to “gather around the beat like a campfire” The track is forthcoming on Blake’s own label 1-800-DINOSAUR.
