Kwes calls his music ‘Free Pop’, explaining: “I feel my music fits around many heads of many sizes and mental dispositions” . ‘Rollerblades’ fits this theme and is a song about lost young love. It’s beautiful, catchy and is another insight into the musical mind of Kwes. B-Side ‘Rosab’ is a messed up, oneiric instrumental ode to his bike, which you can listen to for the first time below.

 Listen back to Kwes' 20-minute mix for Tom Ravenscroft on BBC 6Music

Kwes' ‘Meantime’ EP, released in 2012, saw him step out from behind the mixing desk and into the spotlight. ‘Bashful’, taken from the EP, gained a BBC 6Music playlist for the single and he showcased his live show across Europe, the US and the UK. More recently, Kwes toured with Bobby Womack around the US.

Praise for Kwes and his previous EP 'Meantime'

"hits a sweet spot with incredible accuracy, doing in a few minutes what some bands take an album to deliver." - BBC Music

"somewhere between TV on the Radio and Aphex Twin's more organic material" Pitchfork

the junior Brian Eno of experimental UK pop" - The Guardian
