"I'm respectfully baffled."
Hudson Mohawke

James Blake has responded to Hudson Mohawke's claims that the pair have worked together.

HudMo made the claims earlier this year, sparking a "baffled" response from the Mercury winner. Speaking at the time, James Blake said: "As talented as I think he is, I’ve never worked with Hudson Mohawke and don’t know what he’s talking about. I'm respectfully baffled."

The Warp talent then re-iterated the claims on Twitter, sparking James Blake to pen a full note dismissing this version of events. The note reads: "Ah, for goodness sake. Yes, I listened to them and politely declined. Two years later, you’re alluding to the idea we’ve collaborated to the point where you have something you can leak...? Leak what you have—you’d just be leaking one of your own beats with no vocals or input from me."

"Thank god we’ve never worked together because I wouldn’t be able to trust you with my music. Going forward, if you continue to threaten to leak music or even suggest your ability to do so, soon no one else will trust you with their music either. Once again... baffled."

Hudson Mohawke swiftly moved to end the mis-understanding, writing: "This is blown way out of proportion now. 140 characters taken out of context."
