Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke overcame technical problems to play a triumphant solo gig in London last night (July 17).

The singer was among the performers at Vice magazine's Creators Project with Intel, which also saw Mark Ronson and The Business Intl and Yuck play.

Arriving onstage at the Victoria House Basement around 30 minutes late, Okereke suffered technical problems at the end of set opener 'Walk Tall', forcing him to temporarily leave the stage as boos rang among the crowd.

He returned a few minutes later to play the song again, along with other solo material from his debut album 'The Boxer' such as 'Tenderoni'.

Tracks by Bloc Party - who are currently on hiatus - were also included in the set, with 'Flux' and 'One More Chance' greeted by loud cheers.

Kele played:

'Walk Tall'
'On The Lam'
'Everything You Wanted'
Bloc Party medley
'Tenderoni'
'Flux'


Earlier in the evening, newcomers Yuck played a well-received set, which saw single 'Georgia' get the biggest reaction from fans.

Meanwhile, Mark Ronson and The Business Intl played their second guest-filled set of the day at the gig, performing with the likes of Spank Rock and Rose Elinor Dougall.

Earlier Ronson was joined onstage by Duran Duran and Kaiser Chiefs drummer Nick Hodgson at the Lovebox festival, for a set which also included a collaboration with The View's Kyle Falconer for a version of 'Valerie' and 'The Bike Song'.
