STUFF WE MISSED ::: Jordan Rakei ‘Cloak’

I have been thinking of adding this section to the site for some time. I often find things later than I should have done and just because I was late to the party, doesn’t mean the release should be missed from the site. So to kick off the Stuff We Missed section is the exceptional release by Jordan Rakei which came out earlier this year.

The Australian singer is someone I have not heard of before and I was taken back as soon as I heard the opening track ‘Midnight Mischief’. Sat waiting for a train, this soulful album was the perfect companion to help pass the time.

There is not a bad track on this 13-strong album and features guest appearances from Remi and Ngaiire who both reside in Australia also.

If your into soul music on the highest of calibres then this masterpiece is certainly for you. Also check out the label Soul Has No Tempo when you get a moment. You’ll be glad you did.
