Join the DJ, producer and lead singer of award-winning band Bloc Party for an intimate gig where he’ll perform tracks from new album Trick, as well as music from his previous releases The Boxer and The Hunter.

Following his success as lead singer and guitarist with Bloc Party, Kele embarked on a new phase of his career at the end of 2013. Swapping out the angular guitars and anthemic choruses from the band, he headed straight to the dance floor, producing a shimmering triumph of an album with The Boxer which melded influences as disparate and surprising as two-step, Italo-house and old school garage with seamless ease.

Producing and releasing the EPs Heartbreaker and Candy Flip on pivotal UK dance label Crosstown Rebels and Berlin’s Studio !K7, he’s made DJ appearances across the world; experiences that have fed into the creation of sophomore record Trick. A different, sleeker beast than previous releases – with a newfound emphasis on Okereke’s soulful vocals – it’s a darker, more sensual and personal release which boldly stands at the crossroads of club history, old school soul and modern electronic R&B, with a distinctively British twist.
