Album: Jordan Rakei – Cloak

Jordan Rakei

Via Soul Has No Tempo:

Hands down, straight up “Cloak” is one of the best albums i’ve heard this year!

Delving deeper into his creative well, Jordan Rakei has delivered a record that continues to push personal and societal boundaries, a visionary journey through groove based soul, jazz and hip-hop with hints of psychedelia and afro percussive rhythms. Written and recorded in his new adopted home of London, Cloak is a scintillating and timeless debut drawing influence and inspiration from the discovery of meditation, the separation from ego and a personal conversation with self.

With guest appearances from fellow Australian’s Remi. and Ngaiire – and a feature cameo by the sublime Richard Spaven on Toko – Cloak will take you down the rabbit hole as Rakei expertly navigates explosive new boundaries, where colour and sound collide.

The best compliment i can give this record, and not to demean his past work, but this album sounds like nothing Rakei has ever done before. Big fan of this!
