Mecca:83 – A Rise collection: 2008 – 2018

If you’ve only been following me since the “Mecca:83” era you might not be familiar with the spiritual jazz side of my output under the name Rise.

From 2008 to 2018 Rise was my alias for creating instrumental music inspired by the likes of Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane, Sun Ra and the more Spiritual side of Jazz Music in the late 60s/early 70s: an era I hold dear to my heart. “A Rise collection” compiles 10 tracks from 2008-2018 that I think best capture the essence of the Rise sound. Expect to hear multi-layered percussion work outs, ample saxophone solos and spiritual vibes a plenty.

This release marks the first time that any of the Rise material will be available on streaming platforms. I’m extremely grateful to Ninetofive records for allowing me to share this side of my music with a new generation of music fans.

Mecca:83 – Let’s Get It (feat Grap Luva)

Another week, another single from Life Sketches Vol.3!

Honestly i’ve been a Grap Luva fan since my teenage years. Ever since Pete Rock introduced the world to INI via ‘Fakin Jax’ i’ve been devouring every beats & rhyme the younger soul brother has provided. I never imagined that 20 years later i’d have the opportunity to work with him and be a part of his musical history. I’m still soaking it in. Honestly, I can’t say much more about this track other than LISTEN!

Infinite love to Jabba Tha Kut for firing up his turntablism, Donald Malloy for his horn work and Joel VDK for keeping the visual fresh.

“If there’s a running theme through all the music i’ve done, it’s positivity: i’ve always tried to make music that makes people feel good. I’ve never really been about dark music. If people remember anything about my music I hope it’s that” – Mecca:83, December 2014
