Album: Assume Form
Producers: James Blake, Metro Boomin, Dre Moon, Wavy, and Dan Foat

On “Mile High,” James Blake moves away from the downtempo, broken-hearted pop he’s made a career out of, and towards a mysterious, narcotized interpretation of modern trap music. Metro Boomin adds some rhythmic texture, and Travis Scott turns in a reliably good vocal performance. Musically, it’s not flashy, but the sparseness gives Scott enough room to mess with flows and move between rhyme patterns. Like any great producer, James Blake uses his skillset to amplify everyone around him. Even though this is Blake’s project, “Mile High” is another Travis Scott anthem. Will Schube
