Mercury Prize and Grammy Award-winning James Blake releases the limited 12” of his Before EP on 18th December. The EP was launched in October with the track Before launched as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1. James also made his long awaited return to Boiler Room on 16th October doing a live stream DJ set from The Regent Theater in Los Angeles - https://youtu.be/umnjNOjqlcg
Paying homage to his London club days, Before sees Blake returns to his roots whilst showcasing the evolution of his music. For James, the EP is the expression of “a yearning for dancefloor elation”, a reminder that he has continued to be a DJ and continued to be plugged into underground club culture all this time, but also a statement of “finally having confidence to put my own voice on dancefloor rhythms”. Directed by Ryder Ripps, each accompanying visualizer reflects this sentiment.
