Guest Mix: Kwes.

Next up in the Guest Mix feature is one of the UK's best kept secrets - Kwes.

It's pretty likely that you've either come across him without even realising it or will be doing so in the near future, as there seems to be no end to this man's talents.

He's on production duties for the likes of The XX, thecocknbullkid, Dels, Ghostpoet, Esser and Post War Years, he played keys on Jack PeƱate's debut album and is occasionally part of Ebony Bones' live setup.

He's also a maestro and aficionado of the mixtape, of which he has a series on his own blog which can be found here.

Here's his 'Illegal Tea' mix, exclusively for Illegal Tender.

Furthermore, he has a single coming out on Salvia/XL on 4th December which you should definitely invest in. Both sides are available for your listening pleasure on his Myspace, my personal favourite being Tissues.

Here's his fantastic rework of Hot Chip's latest single One Pure Thought.
