James Blake doesn't want his tracks to be labelled as "sad boy music"

James Blake hit back at reviewers and trolls Twitter over the weekend, attacking the "unhealthy and problematic" labelling his tunes as "sad boy music".

After dropping new track during his most recent BBC Radio 1 Residency show, at least one online review took heat from Blake after poking fun at "one who likes nothing better than getting under the covers his weighted blanket".

Amid a around , Blake commented: "We are already in an epidemic male depression and suicide. We don’t need any further pro that we have hurt men with our questioning their need to be vulnerable and open."

Artists and broadcasters rallied around Blake, with Mary Anne Hobbs and Sohn expressing their support and thanks for his sharing the letter.
