James Blake: Limit To Your Love

So far 2010 has been a stellar year for James Blake; first with his critically acclaimed ‘The Bells Sketch’ EP then the huge underground smash ‘CMYK’ on R&S Records, he’s gone from a left field beat-maker operating on the fringes of dubstep to one of the brightest new names to watch in British music today.

A second R&S release, the hauntingly beautiful ‘Klavierwerke EP’, was released in September and immediately set about defining the sound of James’ future as he cut and spliced his own voice to create an EP of emotive, insular genius, knowingly paving the way for his full vocal debut with Limit To Your Love.

James now rounds off an unparalleled year of discovery by unveiling one of the most stunning male vocals to emerge this millennium. His rendition of Feist & Chilly Gonzales’ ‘Limit To Your Love’ will be the first taste of his debut album due out early next year – and we can’t wait to get our hands on it!

Re-worked, recorded and produced entirely alone in his bedroom, this single is also the first time listeners will have had the chance to hear James’ incredibly soulful voice. Matching an emotional delivery to the original but combined with a foundation-rumbling bass-line, this record is a truly unique arrangement of what was already a soulful and moving piece of music.

‘Limit To Your Love’ is more than just a cover, it’s a glimpse into James Blake’s world. Many have already heard the record grace James’ DJ sets this year. As dubstep fragments into the mainstream consciousness, James Blake boldly sets out his stall as one of the most credible and forward thinking artists to emerge in years.
