*CANCELED* James Blake

March 4
7 p.m.
Electro Pop, Experimental, Singer-Songwriter

A decade ago, London’s James Blake made his name as a 20-year-old electronic-music prodigy on a relatively underground level. Since then, he’s become an almost omnipresent singer and producer, credited on releases by Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, and Frank Ocean, even winning the Best Rap Performance Grammy for his work on Jay Rock’s “King’s Dead.” Blake’s new album, Assume Form, has more hip-hop in its DNA than any of his previous projects, with his Andre 3000 and Travis Scott collaborations resulting in songs like nothing those MCs have done before. But it’s largely defined by Blake’s chilly, spacious arrangements and ever-hypnotic singing. With Khushi.
