James Blake / 1-800-Dinosaur Thread

Click here for some unreleased James Blake

Untitled one that samples ‘Pop Pop Epic’ by Digital Mystikz! Praying that this one sees a release.

that’s me praying it doesn’t.

Why’s that?

I would hate for record labels, mastering studios, pressing plants, record shops and artists involved to lose time and energy over something so bad. I think if this was made by anyone other than James Blake this would be considered a sad attempt at production (especially considering the lazy samplework) with everbody giving the advice to “stick to your dayjob”.

btw are you sure this is a JB production and not just the gaslamp killer playing another (in my opinion) boring nu future poststep garage future set? since it’s ripped from his boiler room appearance.

It’s definitely James! I’ve seen another clip of him playing it out. What’s so lazy about the sample-work? Never seen/heard those two words put together, ever! I’m a diehard James Blake fan, however, I’m well aware that some of his tunes aren’t anything to shout about, I reckon you need to give this another chance though.

Anyone managed to give James Blake’s ‘200 Press’ EP a good listen since its release?

This one’s a favourite! He played it out at WHP in November with a few bars from Trim on top.

Guess which Blake song I sample here https://soundcloud.com/erazered-1/drags

Which release is it off of?

Probably wouldn’t. Pretty in key with this new ‘future’ music that’s been popping up lately. I would agree in the sense that I think it does sound like something someone who was trying to copy James Blake would make though. Vocal chops are pretty ugly too imo. Nice vibe, I’d probably bus a little skank in a club to it, but yeah, a bit meh overall.

Also, the melody is almost an exact rip off of the first tune Mala plays in his Red Bull Academy Lecture lolololololol

for a guy constantly stressing how everybody isn’t reading his posts correctly, your reading comprehension skills could be improved. :wink: first tune in Mala’s RBMA lecture is Pop Pop Epic (yes I actually checked) and @nodnol said that James Blake thing’s supposed to be a Pop Pop Epic remix… there you go.

Anyone listened to the new 1-800 Dinosaur Presesnt Trim album?

Having a listen to it now and it’s pretty decent, nice different styles and some of the tunes are heavy

need to check it, only heard “Before I Lied” and actually really rate it. Trim’s been a G since bomb squad

few of em are a bit plinky plonky but in general its a pretty decent album

dig this one.
