EDITORS’ NOTES

Neo-soul grooves from the Brisbane-born singer/songwriter/producer. Pricking ears with an acclaimed guest spot on Disclosure’s Caracal, Rakei set to work on a mellow-yet-complex debut. It’s a chameleonic introduction: there’s razor-sharp acid jazz on opening track “Midnight Mischief” (written, he says, “for an alter-ego”), “Still” shows off a sensitive singer/songwriter soul, while he brings the bracing funk on “Blame it on the Youth”.
