Aketi Ray are an all-acoustic dub-jazz group from London playing compositions grounded in the instrumental music from post-independence Jamaica, Ethiopian, US jazz, West African percussion traditions, and UK steppas. The tracks here are influenced by UK-dub pioneers Alpha & Omega. "Mirror" is influenced by the classic Alpha & Omega track "Show Me A Purpose"; a piece which explores the difficulty of coming to know oneself. Alpha & Omega provide a deep and spiritual remix. "Reflect & Rise" moves on from a reflective mood into one that's focused and resolute with horn arrangements by Kevin Robinson. 180 gram vinyl.
