Kwes signs to Warp

By | Published on Friday 11 November 2011


24 year-old Kwes, who you may know from his production work with The xx, Micachu, and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, has inked a deal with Warp Records for his debut EP.

He’s also one of a host of producers who has been asked to contribute to ‘Kinshasa One Two’, the first album from Damon Albarn’s DRC Music collective. You can keep track of that scheme, which aims to fund Oxfam’s aid work in Congo, here.

Meanwhile you can share in Kwes’s good fortune by visiting his Facebook page for a free download of his track ‘Get Up’.

His first solo show is due to take place on 28 Nov at The Shacklewell Arms in Dalston, London.
