There’s never a dull moment when tuning into James Blake’s BBC Radio 1 Residency. Previously, the UK crooner debuted his cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence”, and also welcomed Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon into the studio.

For his latest installment, Blake pooled together a solid two-hour mix featuring choice cuts from the likes of Zomby, Jeff Buckley, Young Thug, Joy Division, Peter Gabriel, and Aphex Twin’s other moniker, AFX. Additionally, Blake was joined by his 1-800-Dinosaur label pals and offered his thoughts on cooking Indian food and Justin Bieber’s evolution as an artist.

Listen to the entire mix via BBC Radio 1.

Blake’s Overgrown follow-up is called Radio Silence, and while we do know it will feature Kanye West and Vernon, it’s still without a release date.
