Gilles On BBC 6 Music // James Blake In Session

April 15, 2013

Gilles is joined in the studio by singer/songwriter James Blake, who performs tracks from his new album ‘Overgrown’. Gilles first supported the South London producer’s debut EP, CMYK back in 2010, and since then his profile has continued to rise, with his cross-over hit cover of Feist’s ‘Limit To Your Love’ entering the charts later that year and his debut album being nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2011. With a powerful live show which manages to effortlessly combine electronic and organic sounds, James has moved beyond his dubstep roots, to find a sound that combines more traditional songwriting with forward thinking production techniques. He performs three live tracks for Gilles in the hub and speaks about his collaborations with Brian Eno and music producer, RZA.

Also, following the sad passing of Don Blackman, his self-titled debut is given the Significant Album treatment. There’s a husband and wife Bloodlines feature from Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anna Muldruw and brand new music from Theo Parrish, Omar, Neneh Cherry & Four Tet.
