An avid fan of soul, disco, electro, and Brazilian beats, Kero One creates music that embraces these diverse genres without abandoning his hip-hop foundation. Now, nearly 3 years after Windmills of the Soul, Kero One has returned with a mission to renew the sounds of modern hip hop by melding together bits of various genres of music. In the creation of Early Believers, Kero One has enlisted the talents of some of his favorite singers and vocalists such as Giles Peterson's UK singer protege Ben Westbeech, Finland's own modern day "Stevie Wonder," Tuomo, and Portland's Ohmega Watts, to name a few. Pairing vocals with the warm tones of analog compressed drums, vintage synths, and live instruments, Kero One has created a 12 track album exhibiting his live instrumentation abilities, and growth and maturity as a writer, arranger, and vocalist.
