With glimmers of Prince and a shimmering sonic sense that is entirely his own, Rakei has caught us off guard with this soul-bearing odyssey of a record. Jordan Rakei is the multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer with a soulful, jazz and hip-hop driven sound who recalls wide-ranging influences from past legends such as Curtis Mayfield, Jeff Buckley, D’Angelo and more contemporary peers Tom Misch, Moses Sumney, The Internet and Hiatus Kaiyote. Previous albums “Origin” (2019) and “Wallflower” (2017) on Ninja Tune cemented his worldwide reputation as a modern soul icon in the making. Moving to London in 2015 from Brisbane, Australia, Jordan soon linked with Tom Misch, Alfa Mist and Barney Artist to form the Are We Live collective – a veritable hotbed of creativity and collaboration. He has also collaborated with hip-hop titan Common, Terrace Martin (Kendrick Lamar, Kamasi Washington); the certified legend Nile Rodgers; Disclosure; jazz drummer Richard Spaven (Flying Lotus, Jose James); Rosie Lowe; and Jordan wrote, produced and performed on four tracks for Loyle Carner’s 2019 album “Not Waving But Drowning” including the singles ‘Loose Ends’ feat. Jorja Smith and ‘Ottolenghi’
