With just weeks to the release to his highly anti­cip­ated FLAWD album, Brook­lyn R&B artist Adri­an Daniel is gain­ing ground with his recent offer­ing from the pro­ject, “Deadly Attrac­tion”. The track, which caught sup­port from Clash, i‑D, Hun­ger, Glob­al Grind, and more, has been hailed as “A stat­ic­ally addict­ive pro­duc­tion with pop and alt‑R&B ele­ments, which finds Daniel stretch­ing and bend­ing his fal­setto in melod­ic ecstasy” [This­IsRnB]. Adri­an has expan­ded upon that with his remix for “Deadly Attrac­tion,” fea­tur­ing a guest verse from Bed Stuy Mogul Club rap­per His­tory.

When you think of mod­ern R&B music it’s rare you find artists whose roots run deep in Brook­lyn. The most pop­u­lated and diverse bor­ough in the bust­ling city of New York usu­ally brings hip-hop and indie rock to mind; but singer/songwriter/producer and nat­ive Brook­lyn­ite Adri­an Daniel is remind­ing people of the rich his­tory of soul, funk, and rhythm and blues that came out of his neigh­bor­hood. Start­ing his career at a young age as a dan­cer, gra­cing stages like the Apollo Theat­er and the Brook­lyn Academy, Adri­an turned his focus to music and dropped his first pro­ject in 2012. His sig­na­ture Altern­at­ive R&B sound has been mak­ing waves since, pois­ing him as a true con­tender in the music land­scape. His sound has been said to be “one of the reas­ons R&B is excit­ing again, push­ing the genre into new ter­rit­ory.”

Adri­an’s work is for­ti­fy­ing the resur­gence of Pop R&B and Hip-Hop. He entrances listen­ers with his old-school flair, lyr­ic­al storytelling and sig­na­ture genre-blend­ing style.

With a repu­ta­tion for ground­break­ing music, wildly enter­tain­ing live shows, and a highly anti­cip­ated new album to come, Adri­an Daniel shows no signs of slow­ing down.
