He's from London, his compositions are a mixture of electronic, soul, and dubstep, and this year, he was voted runner-up in BBC's Sound of 2011 poll. Oh, and did we mention he's only 22? Blake's music has a touch of humanity not usually found in electronica, and it is that human touch that makes his music a little unlike anything we've ever heard before. See him now, because the kid's gonna be big.
