James Blake Talks About New Album Sound; Working Further With Bon Iver

Written by Brayden Darke on February 24, 2012

London-based dubstep producer James Blake spoken in an interview with Spinner recently about a new sound for his new album, describing it as “a bit more aggressive” and with a “clubby” influence.

“think it’s going to be a bit more aggressive, to be honest. It seems that way. I don’t feel more aggressive, it’s just been … it’s just how I feel. In terms of writing more club tracks, writing more electronically influenced — I feel like it was all electronically influenced, but now that influence has come to me in a different way.”

“I have been. A lot of the vocal music I’ve been doing recently has been quite clubby. But that’s mainly because I’ve had more time to go to clubs, and that normally breeds that kind of influence. I’ve been doing quite a few DJ sets recently, which have been really fun.”

He also spoke about his plans to work further with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver eventually, saying “We really do want to work on some more stuff together.” “I will be making sure that I visit him as much as possible when I’m in the U.S., and I know that he’ll be in London at some point, as well.”

Blake released two EP’s via R&S Records back in 2010, and CMYK and Klavierwerke last year.

He was last out here for Splendour in the Grass 2011.
