Detroit Soul Singer Dwele Fuses Hip-Hop with Classic Rootsnew

Dwele's soaring high-tenor tones on Sketches of a Man have a decidedly old-school vibe. But his at times stream-of-consciousness lyric flow and seemingly out-of-sync drum 'n' bass syncopations come from hip-hop.

Dwele's Got a New Album and Label but the Soul Remains the Samenew

Sketches of Man is a smooth, melodic 20-track disc that showcases a lot of growth on his part since his last project, Some Kinda, came out three years ago. For some musicians, that would seem like a long time between albums. But for Dwele, his frenetic work schedule and creative process have made it all seem like a blur.
