DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT AN ANNOUNCEMENT OF AN ACTUAL ALBUM(S) BUT A NEW FEATURE IN WHICH WE OUTLINE A PROJECT(S) WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE HAPPEN.

After hearing that James Blake’s forthcoming Overgrown album would sport features from Brian Eno and RZA, we couldn’t help but imagine what other artists would have great chemistry with the UK singer and producer. With something to offer for just about every fan of music, James Blake’s sound is rooted in everything from soul and R&B to dub-step and hip-hop. Which makes him such a stellar candidate for this installment of Armchair A&R.

On the list you are going to see a number of notable names as well as rising stars, including everyone from Janet Jackson to AlunaGeorge. And, of course, let us know which artists you wish would hop in the studio with James Blake in the comments section.
