James Blake spoke to FACT recently about becoming “obsessed with the incessant melody” of ‘Stop What You’re Doing’, the self-confessed “black sheep” of Untold’s Gonna Work Out Fine.

It tells in his remix: the staccato hook is pretty much all that’s left of the original, Blake using it as a foundation to project a wild, nightmarish fantasy of pitch-bent synths and cyborg vocals. Difficult to listen to, this takes the stop-the-dance aesthetic of many of Untold’s tracks (think the drop on ‘Anaconda’) and magnifies it, resulting in one of the year’s bravest and best singles.
