Dan Kye  —  Joy, Ease, Lightness
The strong soul foundation is still there, but productions are more akin to Seven Davis Jr, Steve Spacek or Peven Everett. ‘iigo’ might sound familiar if you listen closely; a remix of sorts, taking the lyrics from ‘Talk To Me’ – a highlight of Jordan’s debut album Cloak – chopping them up, changing the arrangement and building around a shuffling, garage house beat.
Joy, Ease, Lightness is a 4 track EP aimed squarely at the dancefloor, but with a meditative awareness that reaches far beyond the club. Fans of Seven Davis Jr, Steve Spacek et al, watch out - there’s a new man in town: and he goes by the name of Dan Kye.
Yet another stellar release from the Rhythm Section International Crew - undoubtedly the label to watch in 2016.
