Jordan Rakei has shared his jazzy new roller 'Rolling Into One' - tune in now.
The New Zealand artist is now firmly ensconced in London, a key component in the conversation between jazz, club culture, and traditional songwriting.
Releasing electronic music on key imprint Rhythm Section and working on the new Loyle Carner album, Jordan is one of the most flexible musicians in the capital right now.
New album 'Origin' will be released on June 14th, with Jordan sharing his jazz-leaning new cut 'Rolling Into One' as a preview.
It's a sensual, dancefloor-friendly offering, but Jordan Rakei's vocal forever looks to deeper waters, with the lyric focussing on "acceptance and perseverance".
"This song is about embracing the mentality of acceptance and perseverance. Things will continue to happen and we can only look at the bright side to remain sane through the rise of technology and artificially intelligent systems. I wanted the song to be sonically vibrant and colourful but maintain its darker lyrical theme of a dystopian future."
Tune in now.
