James Blake‘s self-titled album didn’t include this track, but it’s been floating around the internet since Benji B played it on his BBC radio show. Unreleased and taken from this old Fantastic Mr Fox mix, “Love What Happened Here” shows James Blake at a slightly earlier stage in his electronic echo-y musical development. Don’t sleep on the full-length album, featuring the beautiful singles “The Wilhelm Scream” and “Limit to Your Love.”
