about

Daniel Detroit, Michigan

Daniel is a Detroit-based artist and producer. His new release, Extracolor, is pop music remembered wrong. A wide, missed swing taken at R'n'B, Hip Hop and Electronic that never gets any of those genres right and in the process arrives at something wholly original. It will be released January 23, 2012. ... more

Track Name: One More Time
I came here for myself/I want to love you one more time/So if you've got the room/You ought to let me in/Never giving up my dreams for you
Track Name: Got To Be (The Lowest I've Been)
It's got to be the moment/It's got to be time/Driving me lower/Driving me down/Oh, it's got to be the low, got to be the lowest I've been/It's got to be the low, got to be the lowest I've been/So many feelings, so little time/So many matters, so little mind/Oh, it's got to be the low, got to be the lowest I've been/Taking it further, we're gonna get real this time/I'm in the low end, you're in the high/Oh, it's got to be the low, got to be the lowest I've been
Track Name: All The Way
I'm going to be here till the party stops/Ride this mother till the wheels come off/Cause I waited too long for you/Oh yes I waited too long for you/You say you need a little time for truth/A little time is all, but that won't do/Cause I waited too long for you/Oh yes I waited too long for you/Say you love me like it's real this time/Say it, say it like it's true/Half on fire, baby, half on ice/Never all the way with you/She got a body make you grind your teeth/I'm making beats'll make the knees go weak/Cause I waited too long for you/Oh yes I waited too long for you/You say that it's for real, for real this time/But girl you know I've gotta heal this mind/I waited too long for you/Oh yes I waited too long/Say you'll love me till the wheels come off/Come on, say it like it's true/Half on fire, baby, half on ice/I'll go all the way with you/Say you'll love me till the wheels come off/Come on, say it like it's true/Half on fire, baby, half on ice/I'll go all the way with you
Track Name: Eyesite
Heaven burns for you/Hell is just a place where your dreams come true without you/He's the one for you/I don't have any proof but I know it's true/(Dreams without you come true without you)/I'll smoke down with you/I'll get down with you any way you want/But he's the one for you/Hasn't been a day when it wasn't true/I don't have anything/I don't have anything/I don't have anything but you/Heaven died for you/Hell is just a place where your dreams come true without you/I'm the one for you/Don't have any proof but I know it's true/So I'll give in to you/Turn into you/Get into you/I don't have anything/I don't have anything/I don't have anything but you/I want to take you further into my heart/I want to take you/I want to take you apart
Track Name: Game
It's just talking and talking/All that sound without a soul/All that sound dressed up and no place to go/I know there must be more to life than this/Deep pockets, deep beats, looking crisp/But maybe not, maybe this is it/Maybe what you see is what you get/But I want a love'll make this heart beat faster/I want a love'll get this ghetto blasting/It's like faith, hope, whiskey, women and weed/And the greatest of these is love/But a love'll make your knees go weak/The kinda love'll make you grind your teeth/That kind of thing can be hard to find though/That kind of thing can be hard to spot though/In a room full of hello kitties you've been chasing and chasing, like, hey gato, gato/I want a world that is new and brave/I want a world with game/I want to be amazed/You know that life is wasted on the dead/I want to sleep in graves/I want to change my shape/This path is the path of subtraction/It's no joke and there's no action/It's teaching a man to put away his toys/It's marching to the beat of a still, small voice/Between heaven and earth there seems to be a bellows/A little light, and a little gloom/But there are no words and there are no answers/Just boom, boom, chuck, boom, chuck, boom/I want a world that is new and brave/I want a world with game/I want to be amazed/A girl whose eyes are colored dish soap green/A girl who parts the seas and sings in Spanish keys/You know that life is wasted on the dead/I want to sleep in graves/I want to change my shades/I want to live it with the color on/Life in a giant screen/A life beyond belief
Track Name: Zhivago
I feel alone when I'm with you/And I don't know what I should do/But I feel alone when I'm without you/Without you/Without your love/I cross my heart and hope to die/I stick a needle in my eye/Just feels so wrong when I'm without you/Without you/Without your love/I'm alone without your love/I hold my breath when I'm with you/Cause there is never any proof/But there's no proof when I'm without you/Without you/Without your love/I feel alone when I'm with you/And I don't know what I should do/I feel alone when I'm without you/Without you/Without your love
Track Name: I Believe
I believe, I believe in a god above/I believe in everything as well as nothing at all/If I had it my way I would call you/If I had it my way I would call you out/I believe in a version of a holy dove/I believe, I believe in all of the above/If I had it my way I would call you/If I had it my way I would call you out/These words mean nothing at all/These words mean nothing at all/We're all fish crawling out of the sea/Crawling out of these old beliefs/I believe 9-11 was an inside job/I believe in Dorothy and her magical shoes/I believe in a virgin birth, Michael Jackson springing from the head of Zeus/I believe, I believe in a god above/I believe in everything as well as nothing at all/If I had it my way I would call you/If I had it my way I would call you out/I believe in a version of a holy dove/I believe, I believe in all of the above/If I had it my way I would call you/If I had it my way I would call you out/Multiplying fishes/Turning water to wine/Houdini sawing all the pretty ladies in half/I believe it all/Four truths, second comings/One road to god that's an eightfold path/Haile Selassie, Chomsky, Fugazi/I like a little voodoo in my illuminati/The only thing to fear is belief itself/I believe, I believe in a god above/I believe in everything as well as nothing at all/If I had it my way I would call you/If I had it my way I would call you out/I believe in a version of a holy dove/I believe, I believe in all of the above/If I had it my way I would call you/If I had it my way I would call you out
Track Name: Without Warning
You made your bed and now I want to lie in it/You filled me with such doubt that I did die from it/You talked me into/You talked me out of it/I never could believe/I see an end in things/And when I think of love/I think of what it brings/You talked me out of it, talk me into it/Without warning, without warning/Without warning it came back to me/Looking for heroes you were tying yourself to the tracks/But standing up to trains just cut my heart in half/It will come back to me/It will come back to me/You came back to me/Without warning, without warning/Without warning it came back to me/I know, I know, I've always known it/People who love the way we do never outgrow it/Without warning, without warning/Without warning it came back to me
Track Name: Powerlines
Did the road you travelled bring you where you thought that it would?/Did believing ever bring you any peace, any good?/Believing never brought me anything except other problems/Running from the law and from the lord, like a soul deserter/In a dream I heard them dying/Dying seals under the ice/I was mic'ing up their voices/Making beats from the cries/Rhythms of the signal's path and the soul's immersion/Drowning in the fullness of his love and the latest version/I want to be more disappearing/To be in, and not of, this world/I want to flutter like a bed sheet/Fall asleep with my girl/Out of synch and out of tune/At the wrongest angles/Easy come and easy go, like Bolano's angels
Track Name: Tip Of The Tongue
I could meet you anywhere, any time, any place/You really never know/We said a lot of things/You said you'd break my fall/But man can't live by bread alone/I am a liar/Therefore I am/Throw water on the fire and act like a man/I am a liar/I am, I am/All I ever wanted was to end up with you/Close your eyes and make a wish/You only see one thing though you wish for the world/I see my baby there in front of me living on dry land/I see my heart left in the sand/I am a liar, that's how I do/Dial and dial, you won't get through/I am a liar/I am, I am/The child becomes the father, the father the child/She said get yourself a lawyer/You just do what you got to do/Only one love on the tip of your tongue/That writes to be written/And sings to be sung/Sometimes it's spit upon/And often refused/But never was gone/Never was through
Track Name: Broke
I was supposed to be a lion/To be a lion not a wolf/Instead of howling at you wondering where I went wrong/There are no answers, only lyrics/Only religion, never god/But I've been under the influence for too long/I want a heartbeat by Phil Collins/Want Delroy ringing in my ears/I want a lot of things that aren't like me at all/Maybe I'm must an angry person/Maybe this too shall never pass/But I'm just trying to get over myself, that's all/That's all
Track Name: Commitment
Underneath the noise and distance/Everyone is close and quiet/Wrapped around a microphone/Sung without the soul/I want to get real with you tonight/I want to see it through with you/That's right/Just talk about your heart/I will hear you from the greatest distance/Join me in this weightlessness/Flung like Chinese stars/I want to get real with you tonight/I want to see it through with you/That's right/Hey you, hey you/We're just dancing, they're just songs/Hey you/You're so beautiful it's wrong/I want to get real with you tonight/I want to get real with you, that's right/I just want to get real with you tonight/I just want to get real with you
