Kele Okereke's Solo Album?
2009-11-05 by Davey Boy STAFF | 19 Comments

With hints of a Bloc Party hiatus being dropped multiple times over the past few months, Scottish electro DJ & producer Hudson Mohawke has let the cat out of the bag concerning a Kele Okereke solo LP.

During an interview with BBC Radio, Mohawke claimed "It hasn’t been finalised yet, but I’m doing a bit of stuff for Kele from Bloc Party’s solo album. He’s doing a record with one of the guys from Spank Rock.”

As expected, this is likely to suggest that the upcoming solo album will have an electro/dancey style similar to Bloc Party's most recent releases.

Depends how you liked Intimacy, I'm guessing it'll be more of the same.

i would hope not exACTLY the same because then it would kinda say, "look how redundant the rest of the band were on our last record."

I loved Intimacy so I'm not fussed if he continues down the electronica path.

Thought Kele was a girl's name

Band never did much for me, so maybe his solo will be better than Bloc Party but I can't see it
