James Blake 'Before'

James Blake has released his new EP Before. The 4 track EP is an homage to his London club days, as Blake returns to his roots on these deep and immersive dancefloor tracks while showcasing the evolution of his music. Before is available everywhere now, via Republic Records.

Released with accompanying visualizers, the EP is the expression of “a yearning for dancefloor elation,” a reminder that he has continued to be a DJ and continued to be plugged into underground club culture all this time, but also a statement of “finally having confidence to put my own voice on dancefloor rhythms.” Directed by Ryder Ripps, each visual component reflects this sentiment.

In celebration of the release, Blake is returning to perform his first DJ set on the Boiler Room since 2013. The exclusive set will be broadcast on boilerroom.tv, YouTube and jamesblakemusic.com starting at 10pm BST on Friday, October 16th and will feature material from the new EP project – RSVP HERE.

Additionally, Blake recently teamed with Cadillac for an exclusive first-listen experience to help introduce the 2021 Escalade. To help showcase the all-new 36-speaker AKG Studio Reference audio system, some of his lucky fans were treated to a ride in the brand-new vehicle where they had the chance to be the very first to listen to the new EP, Before. When the fans arrived at their destination, they were surprised by an intimate (and Covid compliant) performance by Blake, the first time he has performed in front of fans in months.
