The Up-Turn

@TheUpTurnMusic / tinyurl.com/upturnfbook

After releasing his highly acclaimed debut LP, it seems as though James Blake has  no intentions of slowing down.  His LP was incredibly heavy, dark, and intense, but since then he has given us some great lighter tracks.  This time, he has reworked one of his older tracks “Give a Man a Rod”.  For the rework, he replaced the stumbling beat of the original with a more driven danceable beat that gives the track a much different feel.  As always, the time and detail Blake put into developing every single sound and noise that exit your speakers really shows.  It will be interesting to see if he continues continues to save his dark music for his full projects or will put tracks like this on them.
