JORDAN RAKEI ‘Eye To Eye (DAN KYE remix)’

Written by on March 12, 2018

Riding the waves of support and plaudits for his sophomore album Wallflower (Ninja Tune), Jordan Rakei is looking forward to a busy and fruitful 2018. His latest single ‘Eye To Eye’ includes a soul-infused dancefloor edit produced under his Dan Kye alias (Rhythm Section).

Jordan Rakei is a New Zealand born. London-based multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer is a rare talent whose distinct take on soul captures a sonic and emotional awareness many artists spend their entire careers chasing. Jordan’s whirlwind rise has been a predominately solo effort. In 2016 he self-released his debut album Cloak, and drawing early support from the Soulection crew, he has collaborated with Taku,T om Misch, FKJ, and lent vocals to the Disclosure track ‘Masterpiece’, collaborating with United Vibrations (featuring Yussef Dayes of Yussef Kamaal fame), Richard Spaven (Flying Lotus, 4 Hero, José James) and Alfa Mist.

Moving from Australia to London, Jordan met Bradley Zero, founder of South London record label and party Rhythm Section. Bradley encouraged him to try his hand at a collection of dancefloor-driven tunes which were released by the label at under the alias Dan Kye.
