Sound of 2011: James Blake

London producer James Blake is at number two on the BBC Sound of 2011 list.

Blake is at the forefront of the emerging post-dubstep sub genre of UK club music. He spoke to BBC News about his background in music, his influences and how he goes about putting a track together.

The Sound of 2011 list was compiled using recommendations from more than 160 influential UK tastemakers, who were asked to name their favourite new acts.

This week the BBC News website is counting down the top five acts, with the winner announced on Friday.
