James Blake Comes Thru on Drake Remix

Back in 2011, the enterprising Philadelphia DJ Bombé mashed up James Blake and Drake for his appropriately-titled James Drake mixtape. Now the British crooner and Canadian rapper have come together for real, as Blake steps in to remix “Come Thru.” The penultimate track on Drake’s recently-released album Nothing Was The Same gets remade with blasts of airy synths, the original’s sudden change in tone turned into a thumping electronic fantasy.

Following his collaborations with RZA and Chance the Rapper, it looks like Blake’s still strengthening his hip-hop connections. The soulful singer/producer is currently on an extensive US tour in support of his second album, Overgrown, which came out earlier this year. Check out jamesblakemusic.com for full details.
