After selling out his show at the Palais, James Blake is stepping up for a rare DJ set at Howler

This event has finished

After a very brief promo trip earlier in the year, James Blake is back in the country for Splendour in the Grass. Known for his delicate vocals and heavy beats, will be putting aside all instruments (as seen in his Palais show earlier in the evening) to show the Howler dance floor how he likes his club music. Blake’s bandmate Rob McAndrews (aka Airhead) will be in support alongside Spoonbill and A13.

Check out our top five James Blake tracks:

1. 'Air & Lack Thereof' (Hemlock Recordings)
Blake still performs this 2009 single on DJ Untold's cred label at the start of his live shows.

2. Mount Kimbie 'Maybes' – James Blake remix (Hotflush Recordings)
Blake, a sometime DJ, rarely remixes others officially, but he made an exception for his dubstep mates.

3. 'CMYK' (R&S Records)
A not-so-secret '90s R&B fan, Blake manipulates samples of Kelis and Aaliyah on this garagey favourite.

4. 'Retrograde' – Finn Pilly edit (Bootleg)
With no official remixes of Blake's 2013 monster, bootleggers have got to work. Bloggers are loving this space disco version from Norway's Finnebassen.

5. 'Digital Lion' (Polydor)
Redeeming himself after those bland Coldplay hook-ups, Brian Eno returns to his roots in experimental electronica, collaborating with Blake on this epic Overgrown club track. CW
