JAMES BLAKE ORDER / PAN

Over the weekend, dubstep wunderkind James Blake shared an upbeat "Essential Mix" with BBC Radio 1 that included everything from Snoop Dogg and Drake to some choice new cuts from Blake himself.

Blake generously dropped three new tracks onto the mix and then posted a download link to the whole thing on through his social media channels. The mix brought us "Olivia Kept", "Deeds" and "Evening Fell Hard For Us". These new cuts are rumored to be off of Blake's new Enough Thunder EP, that's due out in a few weeks. See "Deeds", a convoluted beauty that subtly and slyly covers Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You", which we know for certain Blake was going to cover on the EP.

The new tracks sound like amalgams of the artist's paradigm shifting early releases and his shrewd crossover to singer-songwriter territory. They also sound unfinished, or perhaps incomplete, not whole outside the drama of the EP. We won't know for sure until Enough Thunder is released on October 10. Until then, check out the three new songs, as well as the rest of the Essential Mix.
