There are shades of Kate Bush in the phrasing of a few of the vocal breaks, and you may not be able to lose that thought as you listen through. Other influences are less obvious. If you really want to put it in a box, this is probably a work of 'progressive jazz blues hip hop', although 'alternative' would probably do.

Aruba Red has created a great selection of songs on Shadow Work that can comfort, console, and give hope to anyone. Licks of Erykah Badu, Prince, Nitin Sawhney (a mentor to Aruba Red) and Portishead all coalesce to make a delightful mix.
