Rakei's name has been on the lips of music creators and consumers since his Groove Curse E.P in 2014. His electric soul was magnetic and songs like "Add The Bassline" and "Alright" have become essentials for anyone well-versed in South London's lucrative music scene. Rakei's charm is in his musical breadth. He is a multi-instrumental talent that never ceases to stuff his sound with the newest and most exciting production.
Experimental production combines with soulful pop here, as we see Jordan Rakei is at his brightest and boldest - and he should be, having recently spent time in the studio with Nile Rodgers. There's real variety on this project. Take the lush, full harmonies and synths of opener 'Mad World', layered up with handclaps and vocal samples, or the haunting strings of 'Speak'.
