Listen: James Blake Remixes Drake

Emotional scenes...
James Blake

James Blake has posted a remix of Drake's 'Come Thru' online.

James Blake has always flitted between the idea of the torch singer and the club producer. 2013 has already brought us Blake's second full length studio album, but alongside this the producer has continually experimented.

Recently working with Chance The Rapper, the English artist now has his eyes set on Drake. Opting to remix 'Come Thru' the producer has been trailing the mix online with a series of cryptic postings.

Well, the wait is over. James Blake's take on 'Come Thru' is club-ready, with the producer adding plenty of lurid, fluorescent synths and bottom end to Drake's 'Nothing Was The Same' standout.

Yet this isn't some Hudson Mohawke style belter - instead, James Blake retains the subtlety, the simplicity of the original and matches it to his own sense of fragility.

Listen to it below.
