Drake: “Come Thru” (James Blake Version)

James Blake making forays into hip-hop has to be one of the things I’m most excited about in music today. Having given his solo album Overgrown time to breath throughout 2013, Blake has been making interesting strides into working with cross-genre collaborations, beginning with his “Life Round Here” track with Chance The Rapper. This time he links up with Drake to add his own flair to the track “Come Thru”. Using his signature, highly intensive synth chords to and mono drum hits to back Drake’s tender tune, Blake is able to transform the radio track into something wholly more interesting. Check out what Blake did this time in the stream here below.
