James Blake        

British Electronic Musician, Singer-Songwriter & Record Producer

James Blake is a Grammy Award-winning alternative electronic musician and singer-songwriter from London. Blake is primarily considered a dubstep producer and is frequently heralded as a leading figure in the "post-dubstep" community, but he is also noted for his prominent soul influences.

He first received recognition for a series of 2010 EPs including CMYK and Klavierwerke, and he released his self-titled debut album in 2011 to critical praise. His second album Overgrown was released in 2013 and awarded the Mercury Prize. He released his third album The Colour in Anything in 2016.

In 2019, his fourth album Assume Form was released and he won his first Grammy Award with "King's Dead" winning in the category Best Rap Performance. In November of that same year, it was announced that Assume Form was nominated for the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album in the 62nd Grammy Awards.

During his career, he has collaborated with artists including Mount Kimbie and Bon Iver and has contributed production work to artists including Kendrick Lamar, Beyoncé, Vince Staples, Frank Ocean, and Travis Scott. Blake has also released remix work under the alias Harmonimix.
