James Blake Litherland (born 26 September 1988), known as James Blake, is an English electronic music producer and singer-songwriter from London. He is also known as Harmonimix when releasing remixes. His eponymous debut album was released in the United Kingdom in 2011 and nominated for the Mercury Music Prize for that year. His second studio album Overgrown won the Mercury Prize in 2013. Blake received his first Grammy nomination at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards for Best New Artist.

Blake began his music career by releasing his debut 12" record, entitled "Air & Lack Thereof" in the United Kingdom during July 2009, while being persistent in recording songs in his bedroom. Having been released on the imprint record label, Hemlock, the extended-play became a favourite of BBC Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson. Soon after the release of the record Blake was invited by Peterson to do a special mix on his international show, including an exclusive Mount Kimbie track. During that time, Blake attended Goldsmiths, University of London, where he studied popular music. As his second year composition assignment, he submitted Klavierwerke EP saying that he didn't want to focus on his university composition, which was already going to be released.
