Kele Okereke Heartbreaker

Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke has always dabbled in dance music; even the hard-rocking Silent Alarm was tangentially related to the dance-punk movement. But I don’t think I’ve ever heard Okereke so completely immersed in house as on “Heartbreaker,” the title track from his upcoming EP for U.K. dance label Crosstown Rebels. Says Kele:

I’ve always loved the inclusive and spiritual nature of house music, so the opportunity to make music for the most iconic and influential house music label in the UK is a dream come true for me.

Hear the tune below and be instantly transported to some plush ultralounge with a $25 cocktail in your hand. That’s Bobbie Gordon on vocals.

Heartbreaker is out 11/25 on vinyl and 12/9 digitally on Beatport, both via Crosstown Rebels.
