“Rise was kind of a sample-based spiritual jazz thing under that name”, says Mecca:83 in our interview last year. “I worked under that name for seven or eight years. Although I’d done a lot of varied work as Rise, after the album came out people started to think of me as ‘that jazz guy’ which was a bit frustrating, so it became pretty clear I needed a new alias.”
Well, that jazz guy is finally back again after a seven-year hiatus. Enjoy “Unity Suite”, one for the spiritual jazz lovers.
