Jordan Rakei Late Night Tales: Jordan Rakei 180g Vinyl 2LP

 

Late Night Tales celebrate their 20th anniversary with the release of New Zealand multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer Jordan Rakei's majestic compilation. The 28-year-old modern soul icon effortlessly stamps his own jazz and hip-hop driven sound all over this gorgeous array of handpicked tracks. A beautifully layered blend that is mirrored in the music he's made, it comes as no surprise that such a supremely gifted songwriter should deliver a mix that is all about the song.

 

"I wanted to try and showcase as many people as I knew on this mix," Rakei says. "My idea of Late Night Tales was to distil a series of relaxing moments; the whole conceptual sonic of relaxation. So, I was trying to think of all the collaborators and friends that I knew, who'd recorded stuff with this horizontal vibe. Plus, I was also trying to help my friends' stuff get into the world. I know the story of Khruangbin blowing up after appearing on the series (in fact, I think that's how I discovered them).

 

So, the main idea was to create a certain atmosphere, but also to help some of my favourite collaborators and buddies to give their songs a little push out into the world. Hope you like it."

 

As Jordan says, there's so much more to the song selection on Late Night Tales' latest outing than a random collection of artists. Many have some sort of personal connection, so just as Bonobo provided a platform for the breakout of Khruangbin on a previous LNT, this may have the same effect for Rakei's friends.
