With a little more than a month remaining until James Blake drops his highly anticipated new album Overgrown, Blake has shared the Dub version of the album track, Voyeur. BBC Radio 1 DJ Benji B premiered this version of Voyeur earlier, and you can stream a radio rip below.
Overgrown drops April 8 through Atlas/Repubic.
SOHN has some new material out today in the shape of his breathtaking new single Bloodflow. SOHN has been keeping himself pretty busy over the last four months or so, throwing out some rather excellent remixes, but with Bloodflow he has released his finest material to date. His voice really has come into its own and the instrumentals on this track, particularly after the 2:00 minute-mark, are simply gorgeous. If you haven’t already discovered SOHN, then I suggest you take a listen.
16 year old NYC rapper Bishop Nehru has made his dope new mixtape Nehruvia available for free download. The mixtape features production from the likes of J Dilla, DJ Premier, and MF DOOM.

Black The Panes is the wonderful debut release from Adelaide, Australia based outfit Wild Oats. It’s the first single from the trios forthcoming debut Bounty EP, and it’s got one of the nicest hooks I’ve heard all year. There’s some really sweet harmonies and guitar playing to be found here too. They name Tigermilk and Bitte Orca as influences on their Facebook page, so I’m thinking there’s very little to dislike about this band.
Bounty is out March 12, available on their bandcamp.
Benoît Pioulard’s new album Hymnal was released this week through Kranky. I finally got around to listening to it earlier this morning and I reckon it may be his best effort yet. The soundscapes on this album are far more expansive than his earlier albums. It is, at times, a truly stunning effort. Grab a copy here.
Action Bronson has teamed up once again with producer Harry Fraud for a track called Morey Boogie Boards which is off Frauds upcoming mixtape Adrift. Having worked together before, the pair really know how to accentuate one anothers strengths. On Morey Boogie Boards, Frauds particularly dope beat sounds really fresh alongside Bronson’s typically kills it with some slick bars.
Adrift drops this Friday.
