James Blake - New Cross 'post-dubstep wunderkind'

New Cross-based James Blake - an ex-Goldsmiths student described recently in NME as 'London post-dubstep wunderkind' - has had two EPs out on R&S records this year - CMYK and the new Klavierwerke. With snatches of melody appearing and vanishing and beats emerging in the fog, comparisons with Burial are inevitable - but he has a very distinct sound of his own.

Courtesy of a Radio 1 appearance and a cover of Feist's Limit to your Love he now looks set to cross over big time, with this beautiful song due to be released next month.
