Listen:Jordan Rakei – ‘Wallflower (feat. Kaya Thomas-Dyke)'(Dan Kye Edit)


When Jordan moved to London from Brisbane two years ago he struck up a friendship with Bradley Zero (founder of the South London club night and record label Rhythm Section) who encouraged him to try his hand at making some uptempo, dancefloor-facing music. This was an entirely new venture for Jordan who had, until that point, been experimenting on a hip-hop/soul tip and honing his songwriting skills. He made four raw, instinctively soulful house tracks and, delighted with the results, Bradley released them on a Rhythm Section 12” titled “Joy, Ease Lightness” in December 2016. Jordan created a new moniker for this offshoot project: Dan Kye.
It was a natural step for Jordan to return to “Wallflower” in Dan Kye mode and re-imagine the title track. The result is a characteristically warm, bumpy, four-to-the-floor dub
