James Blake Holds It Down With His '200 Press' EP

It's been a year since we last heard from James Blake when he dropped his brilliantly gorgeous Overgrown album. Now he's back with a short but sweet reminder of why we got hooked on him in the first place with the recent release of his EP, 200 Press, which he first announced on air during his BBC Radio 1 residency this past summer.

The four-track release got its name from the title track and the fact that there will only be 200 copies of the EP pressed up on Blake's 1-800-Dinosaur imprint. Each song featured on 200 Press showcases more of the moody, off-kilter vibes that we've come to expect from the young Brit, with "200 Pressure" and "Building It Still" veering ever-so-slightly into techno/dance territories. The project concludes with the Blake-penned poem "Words That We Both Know," which is hauntingly beautiful thanks to Blake's woozy altered vocals.

Though it's not the full-length album that we've all been waiting on, it's definitely enough to stoke the flames of anticipation in the meantime.
