Last night, James Blake hosted another two-hour radio show on Britain’s BBC 1 as part of his continuous, gripping monthly residency for the station. Again, the producer shared exciting new music: a fresh song called “200 Press” and his edit of Airhead’s “Shirin”.
In the past months, Blake has been debuting a good share of unreleased gems from both his and other musician’ studios. In April, he premiered Jamie xx’s song “Girl,” pretending it came from a newcomer cheekily named Simon Tallywhacker. Blake’s other antics have included a fake interview with Burial and remixing Kendrick Lamar’s “m.A.A.d city” on a plane.
Listen to “200 Press” below, and then head over to BBC 1’s website to check out “Shirin (James Blake Edit).”
