James Blake - Klavierwerke EP (2010)


Simply put, Klavierwerke translates to "piano works" and this time around, James Blake takes the more minimalist approach to ambient/dubstep and reintroduces the genre as one capable of exuding melodies. Using his own voice, a mixture of heavily-reverbed and dry claps, white noise, extended silences and the ever-present clackety clack of the hi-hat, James creates 4 tracks that sound nothing like the ambient/dubstep you may be familiar with. Even this description is somewhat lacking...
