James Blake let slip last month that his new album was halfway done and this month he has dropped a new track on BBC One.
Appearing on Jamie xx, his good friends, show last Wednesday night he debuted the track, without so much as a word to whether it would appear on the yet to be released album. The track is much darker then Blake’s previous releases with a sample heavy cut intrumental piece.
Collaborations, such as David Bowie and Disclosure who appeared on the Mercury Prize winning Overgrown last year, are all speculation at the present however Blake has been working on a follow up with Fall Creek Boys Choir collaborator Justin Vernon and working with Kanye West on a intermittent basis. He has also given word to a third collaborator who has been kept in the dark.
Botnek saves us from the most hated track this winter!
The Canadian duo, Botnek, have come to the rescue, making an awesome mix of the chainsmokers #selfie. The song that promises to ruin you holidays, get stuck inside your head and destroy friendships has finally been given a face life.The insufferable, #selfie, was funny at first, but it has been taken too far, played too many times and used for too many hilarious vine clips.
They utilize their stylistic energetic and electrifying kick to re-dubb the annoying version into an actual dance track.The track is punchy and synthetic, with the bass drop building up to the original tracks’ punch line and putting the best twist on it: “but first…..shut the f*ck up!” and the raving beats are sweet and bouncy. This remix is definitely the only one we can stomach. It has truly allowed us to tolerate the infuriating #selfie when played in clubs!
Have a listen, and let us know what you think about the remix in the comments below!
