Jordan Rakei Drops Dancefloor-Ready Ninja Tune Edit
'Wallflower' (feat. Kaya Thomas-Dyke) (Dan Kye Edit) is available now via Ninja Tune.
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, which can be streamed in full below—and is available now via Ninja Tune.
