James Blake – TBA (TBA)
This year’s artist-facing-absurdly-high-expectations is British producer James Blake. Some believe his strange yet striking debut will have a huge influence on electronic music in the coming decade. For now, Blake is well into his follow-up, having already performed a few tracks live. His current audience is much wider than he could’ve ever expected, and with Republic Records trying to stay afloat after a mid-2012 split with Universal, the pressure will be on to choose between staying the course or go again for groundbreaking.
