James Blake has surprised his fans by dropping a new EP called Before. The record shows him returning to a more club-oriented style, which he developed in his early years behind the decks in London's club scene. In honor of the release, Blake will be returning to the Boiler Room to DJ his first set there since 2013.
In Before, Blake expertly pairs his ethereal vocals with 2-step beats that will engulf the senses. The EP is a jaw-dropping performance from the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and music producer. In a press release, he shared that the record is a display of him "finally having confidence to put [his] own voice on dancefloor rhythms."
