James Blake just revealed in an interview with The Miami Times that he will be releasing his sophomore studio album in early 2015, just a short 5 months away. He also revealed that the album is 70% complete and might even include a feature from Kanye West.
Here’s what Blake had to say about the record for Kanye: "We haven't done a great deal of work in the same room yet, but we've done a few things, kind of helped each other with our own music. In terms of the actual collaboration for this record, it looks like we should be able to get something done. I know that there's a specific song I would like him to be on, and if he can do that by the time my record comes out, that would be fantastic.”
Let’s not forget when James Blake and Chance the Rapper lived together earlier this year, which only leaves us hoping some sort of collaboration was created during that time that might make the album.
James also had this to add about experimenting with some new production techniques and feeling good about where he is at writing: "I guess I've taken a focus on the songwriting again, even more closely, and I'm dabbling in some different production techniques, things I've developed. A lot of things have changed in my life since the last record, and overall for the better, so I'm in a good place, I think. I'm in a good place to write in general, and I have been for quite a while."
James Blake will be performing the new tracks for the very first time on his upcoming American shows that are kicking off November 30th in Toronto ending in LA, You can see dates below.

Sam Smith brought out A$AP Rocky tonight during a very special TV performance at the American Music Awards. They performed the A$AP Rocky remix to “Tell Me” that blew up the internet a few weeks back. They are both just as good live performers as they are on record; Sam explodes with passion and Rocky effortlessly delivers his verses. Enjoy the video!
A few weeks back we heard a unexpected pairing of 2pac and Banks for “Thugz Drowning” perfectly mixed by Carlos Serrano. Today he is back with another unique mashup.
In this new track we have overnight star Sam Smith and his song “I’m Not The Only One” providing the instrumental and vocal setting for Kanye West’s notable lyrics on “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” for the perfect contrast. The combination ends up working surprisingly well leaving you wondering why the two artists haven’t collaborated on something yet. Listen below and grab a free download thanks to Carlos. Enjoy!
LooKas has been exploding on our radar on account of his remixes like "Lowrider" and originals like "Loko". The Miami based producer has recently decided to change things up and venture to the chiller side of things with a new future bass original. For this one he joined up with newcomers SMLE (who brought us "Feeling Good") to make "6 A.M.". The new track comes to life in extra-spacey glory and manages to even have a guitar solo that fits perfectly.

Jerry Folk has been making waves as the next producer to explode out of Norway, a country that's been overflowing with talent lately. We've featured his Lemaitre and ZZ Ward remixes which showcased his signature funky style. Today Jerry takes on another classic with Baby Bash's 2003 hit "Suga Suga" bringing it right up to speed. Highlighting the guitar lines and vocals the producer underscores with a blend of tropical house meets nu-disco beats. The strongly disco-influenced bass guitar and "Motherf-cker" samples are the little things that makes Jerry's sound really standout from the rest. Enjoy!

Belgian indie artist Selah Sue just released a new song featuring Childish Gambino and the collaboration sounds incredible. The upbeat electronic-influenced indie background sets the perfect tone for Gambino to come in with a smart verse adding just the right contrast.
My favorite line has to be “DYLON, Rap like this you an icon.”
You can pick up this single today through iTunes ahead of it’s release on Selah Sue’s Alone EP.

French indie act Phoenix's classic song "Lisztomania" is still one of our favorite tunes of the last few years and just received quite an impressive – officially approved – remix from a fresh new production team. Parrad, a duo from France and Belgium (members of groups you are very familiar with) have just flipped the classic upside down. We hear a future bass styling similar to Flume and fellow On & On Records label-mate 20syl, yet with a very effective and dark twist.
We are excited to have the world premiere of this remix complete with download aa part of our 12 Days Of Free Downloads celebration to honor the return of our Soundcloud from it's brief hiatus. Enjoy!
