Listen: James Blake shares final Radio 1 Residency

James Blake shares final Radio 1 Residency

Blake rounds off several months of takeovers.

James Blake was back on Radio 1 last night (18th December), taking over the station’s Residency series for the last time this year.

Blake played music from D’Angelo’s new album ‘Black Messiah’, as well as tracks from collaborator Airhead, Kanye West and Bing Crosby and David Bowie’s Christmas classic ‘The Little Drummer Boy’.

Earlier this year, Blake and his 1-800 DINOSAUR crew used the Residency series to debut new music, host fake interviews with Burial and share infinite in-jokes.

As reported the other day, next year’s Residency guests will include Flying Lotus, Jon Hopkins and Skream. Read more here.
