Rise and the Solar Sound System aka Mecca:83 has released projects under both names in 2011. The UK producer’s sound and influence is rooted in Spiritual Jazz and Hip Hop. Various samples and reworks can be found in his material from artists such as Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane and Jay Dilla. In his 2011 release “Messages” under the Rise alias he reworks various spiritual jazz records to give them a hip hop vibe but manages to maintain the energy and spirit of the sound nicely.
