Jordan Rakei is always an instant win. As we're approaching the release of his upcoming album Origin, here's another taste of what's ahead.
"Rolling into One" is definitely on the groovier / dance-y side of Jordan's work and while it keeps scent of his signature sound, this one is definitely a change of pace. Origin is an album that is overtly inspired by dystopian visions of our future, with many of the album lyrics exploring technological growth and how it affects our sense of humanity. And, with "Rolling into One", Jordan notes...
This song is about embracing the mentality of acceptance and perseverance. Things will continue to happen and we can only look at the bright side to remain sane through the rise of technology and artificially intelligent systems. I wanted the song to be sonically vibrant and colourful but maintain its darker lyrical theme of a dystopian future.
Origin will be released via our friends at Ninja Tune. Stay tuned for more!
