Dan Kye is the mysteriously evoked moniker from multi-instrumentalist, producer, and vocal sensation Jordan Rakei. The New Zealand-born artist -- who now resides in London -- presents his first long-player 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 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", whilst tracks, like "Sober", take on a more lyrical and anthemic feel. 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.
