"James Blake" (Promotional Tools)

"OutKast inspired me. They are a massive, massive influence - one of the biggest I have. I think they’re the best producer/rap outfit ever. Their attitude to production is so free. When they’re making something, it seems like whatever works for the vocal is justifiable. There’s a track called "Royal Flush" where André [3000] does this verse... He just cleans up at the end of it! There’s something about how the voice works with his music that inspired me to allow the voice to dictate where the music goes; in which direction. Because OutKast seemed to have developed a way of letting their voices dictate."
- James Blake to Clash's Miguel Cullen
