It serves as the first taster for the 21-year-old’s debut album, which has been slated for release in early 2011. Recorded entirely alone in his bedroom, it also mark Blake’s full vocal debut – and by all accounts he has quite the soulful croon.
Blake kicked off 2010 with The Bells Sketch EP on Ramadanman, Ben UFO and Pangaea’s Hessle Audio, which was swiftly followed by the CMYK 12″ on resurgent Belgian label R&S, which saw the producer sample 90s R&B divas Kelis and Aaliyah in the title track, chopping their vocals into a wider landscape of sonic textures, leftfield beats and dubstep tempos.
His most recent release, Klavierwerke (also on R&S), took post-dubstep (or pubstep as we like to call it) to a new level of esoteric appeal, paying scant attention to the rules of rhythm based music.(juno report)

Feist – The Limit to your Love
Aaliyah Dana Haughton (January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001), who performed under the mononym Aaliyah (pronounced /əˈliːə/), was an American recording artist, actress and model. She was born in Brooklyn, New York, and was raised in Detroit, Michigan.
On August 25, 2001, at 6:45 pm (EST), Aaliyah and various members of the record company boarded a twin engine Cessna 402B (N8097W) at Marsh Harbour, Abaco Islands, The Bahamas, to travel to the airport in Opa-locka, Florida, after they completed filming the music video for “Rock the Boat”. They had a flight scheduled the following day, but with filming finishing early, Aaliyah and her entourage were eager to return to the United States. They made the decision to leave immediately. Against the advice of baggage handlers and the pilot, all the equipment from the shoot was loaded on the plane. The group was unaware that the plane was unable to hold all the equipment of the Cessna 404 they had initially flown in by. Therefore, the aircraft exceeded the standard weight and balance tolerance limit provided by Cessna. The plane crashed shortly after takeoff, about 200 feet (60 m) from the runway. Aaliyah, pilot Luis Morales III, hair stylist Eric Forman, Anthony Dodd, security guard Scott Gallin, video producer Douglas Kratz, stylist Christopher Maldonado, and Blackground Records employees Keith Wallace and Gina Smith were killed.
