Kwes : Meantime

Featured - Pre-order Kwes  - Meantime EP at Bleep

Kwesi “Kwes” Sey has spent the past few years producing, remixing and collaborating with some of UK’s most forward-thinking pop artists (the XX, Micachu, Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, Speech Debelle and Damon Albarn amongst others), and even though he has already released a few – mainly instrumental – tracks here and there, his first EP for Warp Records, Meantime (out April 30), feels like a debut – albeit a notable one. Combining playful electronica with warm, R&B-tinged songrwiting, tracks like “Bashful” portray Kwes as both an old soul and a giddy, lovestruck teenager; a winning combination.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
