Today. We have the absolute honor of getting Mecca:83’s – Rise Collection (From 2008 to 2018) available on all Digital Streaming services.
A guy, that’s been a part of the movement since early days, and been so supportive i’m highly thankful for all of his work & suggestions towards next steps. The release we did with him under 2017 titled Life Sketches Volume. 03 is still one of my favorites under the catalog and now we see a rise of new music being added into the catalog. I truly hope you are as excited as i am for this.
This is what the man himself said about the upcoming release – 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 for allowing me to share this side of my music with a new generation of music fans.
Please make sure you’re staying updated on this release – available on all platforms on June 5th. Make sure to follow Mecca:83 A.K.A Rise down below.
