Fitting for someone who was born in New Zealand but currently calls London home, Jordan Rakei covers a lot of ground. His recently released sophomore album, Wallflower (Ninja Tune) is a mesmerizing melange of after-hours R&B, experimental indie-pop, and soul-jazz grooves. To help you get in a suitably nocturnal mood, he made us this playlist of his favorite chillout soundtracks.
“To me, these are some of the most beautiful songs in the world. Very sparse. Very relaxing. All have such an amazing energy that keeps bringing me back to them.”—Jordan Rakei
