Track of the Week - Kwes

I've got this great new track for you this week and its a different sound to anything else out at the moment.

Kwesi Say, or Kwes for short, is the latest signing on Warp Records, with artists on their books such as Aphex Twin and Maximo Park. If you love your music, you may know the name as this guy from Lewisham is not new to the scene. He's been producing and remixing for some time now and has worked with the likes of The XX, Zero 7 and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.

Bashful is the debut release from Kwes on his forthcoming EP Meantime out on 1st May. I think the track is clever - its melodic and soulful but at the same time has an interesting electronic sounding beat.

I for one cannot wait to hear what else this guy has to offer...

You can catch Kwes at the following upcoming gigs:

  • 26 April - Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
  • 28 April - Kwesachu 2 Launch, Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer, London
  • 4 May - Land of Kings, London
  • 5 May - Camden Crawl, London
  • 6 May - Simple Things Festival, Bristol
  • 11 May - The Great Escape Festival, Brighton
  • 17-19 August - Beacons Festival, Skipton
  • 1 September - In the Woods Festival, Kent
I'll be at the Leeds gig for the bargain price of a fiver!

Hope you like the track!
