Jordan Rakei – Franklin’s Room EP
Download Franklin’s Room by self-taught Brisbane musician and producer Jordan Rakei. It’s free, and every track on the damn thing rules.
In his music, you can hear the musical luminaries that have shaped his creamy mixture of soul, reggae, funk, RnB and jazz: Fat Freddy’s Drop, John Legend, Bob Marley, James Blake, Stevie Wonder, Al Green and D’Angelo, to name a few.
According to an interview with Rakei last year, 60% of his Soundcloud audience come from the US. Where are you, Australia?? Give your boy some much deserved love!
It’s crystal clear that Jordan Rakei knows his way around the soul sound. Listen to some of his tracks and latest musical sketches on his Soundcloud page, if you’re into that kind of thing.
