Best known because the vocalist/songwriter/guitarist for Bloc Party, Kele Okereke was created in Liverpool, Britain to Nigerian parents. His family members transferred to London and Okereke fulfilled potential Bloc Party guitarist Russell Lissack while still in senior high school. During university, he produced the music group the Angel Range with Lissack, adding bassist Gordon Moakes and drummer Matt Tong towards the fold immediately after. In 2003 they resolved on the name Bloc Party and discovered success having a string of post-punk-inspired produces, you start with the Banquet and She’s Hearing Voices singles and albums including 2005’s Silent Security alarm, 2007’s A Weekend in the town, and 2008’s Intimacy. Past due in ’09 2009, Bloc Party continued hiatus and Okereke started working on tunes by himself, shifting to Berlin and collaborating with makers Hudson Mohawke and XXXchange in NY on a single album. This year 2010, the solitary Tenderoni arrived, disclosing that Okereke’s single work was even more dance-oriented than his music with Bloc Party. That calendar year, he also verified rumors that he’s homosexual and was called Sexiest Out Homosexual Male Artist with the music internet site LP33. His full-length debut, The Boxer, found its way to summer months 2010. After time for Bloc Party for 2012’s guitar-heavy Four, Kele shipped his modern second album Technique in 2014.

|1||I think Oasis are the most overrated and pernicious band of all time. They have had a totally negative and dangerous impact upon the state of British music. They have made stupidity hip. They claim to be inspired by The Beatles but - and this so saddens me - they have failed to grasp that The Beatles were about constant change and evolution. Oasis are repetitive luddites.|
|2||[in 2007] Cocaine can be very attractive, very seductive. But, for me, it's bad news because that drug can really damage your voice. The drug I do enjoy taking is ecstasy, which gives a real sense of euphoria. It makes your senses so much more acute. It makes music sound so powerful. And it makes touch incredibly sensual. You know, every touch is orgasmic. These days, I don't even bother with pills that often.|
|3||[on "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke] It is the most perfect song. If Bloc Party could record something with that sort of emotional impact I would truly feel we had achieved all we could.|
|4||I've been listening to a lot of Queen this year - the Greatest Hits Volumes 1 & 2. I'm completely knocked out by the effort that's gone into making those records. The vocal harmonies, the guitar layering: the fact that this music was made before Pro Tools, it's breathtaking ... and humbling.|
