Dan Kye: “Rainbow Road”

Dan Kye: “Rainbow Road”

Jordan Rakei drops his first floor-focused project as Dan Kye.

Let’s take a ride with Dan Kye, the mysteriously evoked dancefloor focused moniker from multi-instrumentalist, producer, and vocal sensation Jordan Rakei. With a string of highly praised releases under his belt and a timeless soulful, jazz, and hip-hop driven sound, the New Zealand-born artist, who now resides in London, makes a welcome return with his first LP “Small Moments” as Dan Kye for Bradley Zero’s excellent Rhythm Section INTL.

An ode to the dancefloor, the musical project was born out of Jordan’s lockdown experience, created from the comfort of his own home. Recorded with just a laptop, extra live instruments and guest musicians, the record “Small Moments” of eight uplifting house gems seamlessly transcends across electronica, jazz and funk, with each genre being effortlessly fused with Jordan’s melancholy, soul-soaked vocals. As Bradley Zero says: “This ‘Small Moments’ LP was conceived in a record store, born in a club on Rye Lane and is now flying the nest, throwing caution to the wind and making a bold statement.”

One of our favourite cuts from the record is “Rainbow Road”, which was named after one of the maps in Mario Kart and inspired by the energy of Prince’s iconic live concert at The Aladdin in Las Vegas. This one is a perfectly crafted groove-insfued tune dedicated to Morton and Prince.

The “Small Moments” LP is out now via Rhythm Section INTL. Get it here.
