James Blake took to the BBC Radio 1 airwaves again this evening (February 20, 7-9pm EST) for the second show of his residency series. Last time round he played his own remixes of Mystikal’s “Pay Me” and Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love,” as well as a new song called “40455” (listen to them all here). Today we were treated to a wonderfully weird, skittish remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “m.A.A.d. City,” which Blake says “he made on the plane.” Check it out below, and check back for a better quality version as soon as we have one.
UPDATE: James Blake also played an unreleased song called “Roman Patience,” which is heavy on the low end, and will be loved by fans of Blake’s Harmonimix of Mala’s “Changes.” You can listen to the whole (brilliant) show via the BBC here.
