The Bells Sketch
James Blake
12" Vinyl

Product Description

Blake, along with other figures like Untold (also broken by Hessle Audio) and Mount Kimbie, have spun the dubstep style out with new electronic colours and an electro-acoustic attention to detail that simply wasn't there. The radiophonic dub-soul of 'The Bells Sketch' is an extraordinary meeting of styles, finding a tender pressure point between crackly, Oramic melodic naivety and dynamically enhanced dubstep weight with explicit soul keys draped over the top to keep the whole thing from swaying too far into nerdish territory. 'Buzzard and Kestral' follows further into this mix of styles, marrying psyched slow-fast drum machines with near-subliminal jazz-fusion chords to sound like some insane 78rpm shellac, while 'Give A Man A Rod' continues the conceit with a highly articulate dubstep delicacy. You could probably chuck the age-old "prog" accusations at James Blake, but if it wasn't for his sublime execution and understanding of complex spatio-temporal dynamics they'd probably stick. Therefore this is some heavyweight future business that sounds like nobody else out there right now, requiring your full attention.
