As we move, as I creep slowly away, Simple rhyme slang, let the poetry fade, Hear your family, they'll be on till day break show me, show me, I'm strong in the faith Oh but I can't be, you, you. Ah you, fire in the fear I see you, With all the sex appeal, I see you, You, you, you, you

Sober 05:31
I'm messing up and I couldn't find a way to erase, I'm hoping we tied together for a second of fate, you making me cry, teaching me a lesson of fate I patiently tried to run another chance with ya baby, Oh, so what I'm sober I'm sipping it and I'm reaching yet another romantic, I'm sinking in to the feeling of a something you'd thank me, I hopeless lie awaiting you to come this direction I thankfully tried to run you into love and affection Oh, so what I'm sober

going solo now she, tries to infiltrate the party, now she's teasing everybody, solo she, solo she, going solo now she, tries to infiltrate the party, now she's teasing everybody, solo she, solo she, I'm overdue, we over next run running over you, besides skaters coming for ya by the wayside, You make a move, you jump quick quick slumming to the tune, Goodbye haters coming to the wayside, No mess around, the fly sister running dibs upon the town, with no mister waiting for her by the wayside, She's lost and found, no taking back you got to keep it on me now, with no kisses coming for her by the wayside

Actually 03:47
Just like the system way that I adore, Just like the queen that I see, More like the sister of the evermore more like a dream you gave me, telling me, I heard about the way you turna round I heard the only teaching I felt the sunset fall beneath the clouds, I found myself believeing I can see that stars don't hide You're my lucky charm tonight I found a place where all had settled down, I found a place for dreaming I call that you had nearly been about I call ya when ya sleeping, calling ya, I noticed earlier among the trees I noticed all the wkaing I float amongst the rivers at the knees, I floated for the taking I can see that stars don't hide You're my lucky charm tonight

about

Dan Kye is the mysteriously evoked dancefloor focused moniker from multi-instrumentalist, producer, and vocal sensation Jordan Rakei. The New Zealand-born artist - who now resides in London - presents his first LP from Dan Kye, ‘Small Moments’, on Bradley Zero’s 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, ‘Small Moments’ seamlessly transcends across electronica, jazz and funk, with each genre being effortlessly fused with Jordan’s melancholy vocals.

Allowing himself to push the boundaries, Jordan’s Dan Kye moniker draws on the energetic and uplifting elements of house and techno and perfectly mixes it with the sultry vocals and emotion that come with the live elements we know and love from Jordan Rakei. The record offers listeners a journey through more floor-heavy tracks such as ‘Mogeri’ and ‘Raro’ to more groove infused offerings such as ‘Rainbow Road’ (which is 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), whilst tracks, like ‘Sober’, take on a more lyrical and anthemic feel.

Jordan Rakei: “Rhythm Section INTL was my entry point into dancefloor orientated music, and it was Bradley who asked me whether I could head in that direction so he could play my music out in the clubs. Dan Kye has still got melodies, but the main focus is to keep it high energy.”

After meeting Bradley Zero online whilst living in Australia, Jordan eventually moved to London in 2014. The same day he landed, he went straight to a Rhythm Section party to meet Bradley, and it was here that he first got a taste for house music. He enjoyed Rhythm Section INTL’s ability to draw on both live and electronic talent; and thus, after Bradley asked him for some productions for the parties, the idea for Dan Kye was born. ‘Small Moments’ is a musical masterpiece that can be enjoyed as much on the dancefloor as it can in the comfort of your own home and is a perfect step into Jordan’s landscape and idealism of dance orientated music.

Bradley Zero - “In around 2014 the proprietor of the famous Northside Records in Melbourne handed me a self released 12” from a new, unknown artist based in Brisbane. It was Jordan Rakei - Groove Curse. I’d been home almost a year before I actually got round to listening to it and I remember that moment like it was yesterday. I lay down on the sofa, put the record on and was transported! The Dan Kye project is a testament to the experimental and independent ethos Jordan lives by and is a product of an artist reaching full stride but not afraid to still try something new. 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.”
