“dark whirring synth textures, falsetto psych-ish vocals and a cavernous retro-electric beat, like an 808 recorded in an air hanger” - Time Out
“Impressive heritage aside, his solo material suggests he's set to be a star in his own right” - Telegraph
Since the release of the 'Meantime' EP last year, kwes. has been busy working with Bobby Womack, Damon Albarn and Micachu, not to mention being sampled by Kanye West, all testament to his all-encompassing musical talents. kwes. describes his own musical style as ‘Free-Pop’ which he defines as “pop songs or music that can go anywhere, and they can sometimes be very noisy, very quiet or somewhere in between. It's more an ever-changing creative processes with a few constants than a musical style.”
