Kele streams new solo album Trick

07 October 2014, 13:29 | Written by Laurence Day

Kele is streaming his upcoming solo LP, Trick, in full now. The record is released 13 October on Lilac Records.

The album, the Bloc Party frontman's second lone full-length, is an intimate, late-night club affair based around UK garage, '90s dance, 2-step, pop and R&B.

In other Kele-related news, in a recent article written for THUMP, about his experiences of being black and gay in dance vs. his experiences in indie (a very interesting read), Kele slipped in an intriguing titbit:

"For me now, the biggest thrill when I DJ is to look out into the crowds and watch people get lost in their own worlds to the backdrop of my music. The real test for me now as we start preparing the fifth Bloc Party record, is how can I take what I have learned from this world and bring it into another? How can I cross-pollinate? I'm not talking about recycling sounds—that would be reductive and crude. I'm talking about the experience. How can I make something so personal and transcendental translate in the world of indie rock, and is it even possible? I don't know, but therein lies the challenge, and thats a challenge I am excited to undertake."
