James Blake “CMYK” EP (2010)

December 5, 2011

The cover of the second EP by James Blake says “In order to dance”. That short phrase best sums up the four-track CMYK. The opening title track is a delirious and delicious variation on R&B, apparently about some red coat. It’s also one of the best tunes of the fellow Londoner to date. The crystalline beats of Footnotes are meant to permeate through your skin and make you move. Finally, Postpone innocently drives at post-dubstep female-voiced quirkiness.
