James Blake ‘Building It Still’
JAMES BLAKE has unveiled yet another new single, ‘Building It Still’, through a BBC Radio 1 Mix. The producer has been rocking his residency on the station for a while now and debuted his unreleased single, ‘40455’, on it back in January.
By now we’ve all figured that if we want to hear new material from BLAKE, of course BBC Radio 1 is place we’ll hear it first, but because Australia obviously doesn’t get the station, we’ve got the track for you right here.
All of the wonderful elements of JAMES BLAKE‘s production work can be heard in ‘Building It Still’. The track is cool and winds its way around a textural melody that will no doubt give any new listeners goosebumps.
Sweet synth loops compliment the distorted bass line and produce a wonderfully smokey base to ‘Building It Still’. A very moody piano line takes hold of the track and leads it along with BLAKE‘s own chopped vocals humming softly within the piece. The reverberating beats that BLAKE has become known for assist the atmospheric beats and tie everything in ‘Building It Still’ together.
BLAKE is working on his new album and hopefully we’ll be hearing more gems like this before it’s released. We’ll be looking to BBC Radio 1 for more unreleased material and hopefully we’ll locate the reported KANYE WEST and JUSTIN VERNON (BON IVER) collaborations.
