Review: A most intrepid selection for the next instalment of the Late Night Tales series come from an equally beguiling soundtrack by multi-instrumentalist Jordan Rakei. Known for lending his vocals to the music of Disclosure to releasing with Blue Note and on Ninja Tune, the New Zealand born artist introduces himself to Late Night Tales with something neoclassical. Taking on folk, jazz & free jazz to spoken word, warm instrumentals and ambient dualities, the spaces between are filled with percussive electronics, solo acoustic numbers and walls of instrumental noise, culminating in two exclusives; Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's poetic closer, "Imagination", and Jordan Rakei's very own cover of Jeff Buckley's "Lover, You Should've Come Over".
Review: Kojak continue to transfer the contents of their vaults to the digital realm with this latest split EP of remixes by Mike Burns. "You Can Dance" is the aural equivalent of taking a hit of poppers in the midst of a carnival with the biggest firework display exploding at the same time. In other words: a big camp monster. With a capital 'M'. "I Believe" isn't far off either - sounding like the neon-infused future-boogie featured in the 25th century disco scenes in Buck Rogers (younger readers, Google it).
