James Blake has become something of a regular on BBC Radio 1, and his guest sets have so far tended to be fruitful. Last night's turn was no exception: between songs by the likes of Arca, Flying Lotus and Travis $cott, Blake formally debuted “200 Press,” a new deconstructed dance track that he had previously slipped into a set in an unfinished form. He also played a new drawn-out and tottering mash-up of Outkast and UGK's “International Players Anthem” and “Pembroke,” one of his collaborations with Airhead. The whole show can be streamed here; or, jump to 46:20 for “200 Press” and 20:30 for “International Pembroke Anthem.”
