Brooklyn producer, Lord RAJA - the alias of Chester Raj Anand - has unleashed his second album so soon after first debuting on Ghostly International in 2014 with A Constant Moth. But on his latest delivery PARA, composed in part from recordings made at Switched On, a famous music equipment shop in Austin, Lord RAJA weaves together hip-hop, jungle, and Jersey Club influences in order to grasp an array of music fans.

"This is probably my most successful attempt at making a consistent work, RAJA says. "I was really conscious about making a record that wouldn’t alienate people."

The album can be picked up for free here. World tour dates are below.
