UK post-dubstepper (remember when that was a thing? I say this tongue in cheek) James Blake is no stranger to genre stradling and hip-hop flirtation, but on "Mile High", our first taste of his forthcoming LP 'Assume Form', due out tomorrow, Blake leaps head on into the lanes of collaborator and feature Travis Scott for a moody cut soaked in a the hazy smoke of self-reflection. 

While none of that sounds too far off from his past works, it's Blake's delivery that see's him slipping into new territory as he croons "watch the fan as it spins, in my arms wrapped in, dont know where you start, and I begin". 

In a phrase, issa vibe. Check it out for yourself, below.
