Kele – The Boxer

Solo album from Bloc Party man

When Bloc Party forayed into the world of dance music it often felt like something was lacking, a reluctance to fully commit perhaps. Any suggestion that lead singer Kele Okereke may have been responsible however are immediately dismissed within seconds of his solo record ‘The Boxer’ as hi-NRG rhythms and sweet syncopated beats propel themselves skywards.

Moving to Berlin and immersing himself in the underground dance culture has benefited Kele greatly, as has teaming up with producers XXXChange and Hudson Mohawke. Together they create a combination of glossy electro and wobbly two-step hitting euphoric heights with the glorious ‘On The Lam’.
