James Blake, one of the most influential singer/songwriters and producers within hip-Hop over the last decade, has released his latest album, ‘Playing Robots Into Heaven’. The eleven track project is as experimental as ever, blending Alternative and Electronic styles into a cohesive record.

A Mercury Prize and Grammy Award winner, James Blake has worked with some of the greats in Rap and Hip-Hop across his career, including the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Travis Scott to Dave and Skepta in the UK. This album follows his last project, ‘Friends That Break Your Heart’, which was his highest charting project in the UK date.

There is no doubt the impact that Blake has had on music across his career, blending haunting vocals with carefully constructed soundscapes to create exceptional music. ‘Playing Robots Into Heaven’ shows that there is still room for Blake to experiment.
