James Blake BBC sound of 2011

Finally , I found something from James Blake online on the website of BBC sound of 2011.

London producer James Blake sails into Sound Of 2011’s 2nd spot at the forefront of the emerging post-dubstep sub genre of UK club music. The Deptford based artist started singing and studying piano at the age of six, a tutorage which eventually led to Blake’s attendance of Goldsmiths University to study Popular Music. Early listening came in the form of his parent’s classical and jazz collections, in addition to US Soul and R ‘n’ B from the likes of Stevie Wonder, D’Angelo and Sly & The Family Stone. Blake’s love of electronic music came much later when the artist discovered dubstep duo Digital Mystikz a few months prior to his Goldsmiths enrolment.
