Thursday's MPFREE is a brand new signing to Warp records.

Born and raised in Lewisham in London, Kwes has been making waves since his Hearts In Home release in 2009 and his kaleidoscopic 'Kwesachu' mixtape with fellow unorthodox musician Micachu.

Kwes: Get Up

After a sold out live debut in 2011 he is about to release his EP 'Meantime' in late April. This track titled Get Up is a free non-ep download from the artist to give you a taste of what's to come.

Kwes has previously worked with the likes of The XX, Speech Debelle, Micachu, Ghostpoet and a collective of Congolese musicians and electronic producers on the DRC Music project. 2012 will see him set off as a solo artist. Although he plays it down, he's a brilliant drummer and has performed live with DELS and Elan Tamara.

Oh, and he's such a massive fan of tea that the logo of his label Bokkle is a teapot! Maybe enjoy this track with a nice cuppa...
