Sat 1 Mar 2014 Stage 2
No Limits

The golden child from London's Goldsmiths University, James Blake is the latest recipient of the Mercury Music Prize, awarded for second album Overgrown.

First bursting on to the scene back in 2010 with a cover of Feist's Limit To Your Love, Blake's echoes of trip-hop have guaranteed him a devoted fan base, including new music champions Mary Anne Hobbs and Gilles Peterson.

Sparkling with musical innovation, gig-goers have been entranced by his cover of Joni Mitchell's A Case of You and thrilled by his involvement in side project 1800-Dinosaur (whose remix of Destiny's Child's Bills Bills Bills is a triumph). With ambiguous lyrics, haunting loops and mesmerising bass, Blake is the perfect pioneer for 6 Music's brand new fest.
