Dates:
29 May, 08.00pm-29 May, 08.00pm

Londoner James Blake began his final year studying popular music while recording songs in his bedroom. He released his debut 12” Air and Lack Thereof in July, 2009. A firm favourite with BBC Radio 1 listeners, his success has continued to grow from there. Blake writes, produces, and sings, creating his very own electronic sound, which has earned him a Mercury Music Prize nomination for his eponymous debut album, not to mention a massive loyal fan base and critical acclaim from some of the most influential music press publications. Some have punned him as a ‘dubstep’ producer who adds simple electronic beats and piano melodies to eerie tracks, and his cover of Feist’s “Limit to Your Love” really shows this off. Blake’s talent in mixing cold, tin can sounds with a beautifully warm and distinctive voice are also apparent on the 2011 single “Wilhelm Scream”—a recommended track to listen to before the real thing on the 29th.

Wed, 29 May, 8pm. Teatro Kapital, Calle de Atocha, 125 (Metro: Atocha). Tel: 91 420 29 06. Tickets €25 from www.ticketmaster.es
