Operating as the enigmatic engine behind some of the most influential albums of the 21st century, he has produced choice cuts on Frank Ocean’s Blonde and Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN as well as JAY-Z’s 4:44 and Beyoncé’s Lemonade.
Simultaneously, he emerged as pop’s most celebrated outlier with his dynamic solo output. He introduced a singular sound on 2011’s James Blake which Pitchfork crowned one of “Top 100 Albums of the Decade So Far (2010-2014).”
On its heels, the 2013 Overgrown illustrated his rare magnetic ability to align the likes of Brian Eno and RZA on the same project. It notably received the 2013 Mercury Prize and secured Blake’s “Best New Artist” nomination at the GRAMMY Awards.
