Starting at a young age, Daktyl began producing beats in the U.K. as a teenager in his university dorm. Before long, his talents garnered the attention of Diplo’s imprint Mad Decent, who promptly signed him while he was still in university. From there his career took off as he bought a one-way ticket from London to the U.S. to book his own tour across California.
Now, after releasing a pair of singles, “Chaos Control” and “Ku Ring Gai” merely a month ago, Daktyl is wasting no time in releasing new music. “To The Bone” and “A Thin Blue Line” are the next pair of singles to emerge from the evolving producer, out now for streaming and purchase.
Building on the emotive nature of his releases a few weeks ago, “To The Bone” is a slower-paced ballad about forgiveness and taking responsibility for actions and mistakes. “Thin Blue Line” is a 180 degree turn away from the somber nature of its release partner in both style and substance. Self-proclaimed space nerd, Daktyl, creates a sonic galaxy of his own within “Thin Blue Line” inspired by “everything to do with space, the universe, astrobiology and abiogenesis (the origins of life).”
Daktyl has already earned praise from longstanding music pillar Billboard magazine, secured a spot in Rolling Stone’s “Artists to Watch” feature, and was chosen as Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’ on BBC Radio 1. Hot off of his debut Coachella performance and his run supporting Bonobo on a string of dates throughout Europe and armed with a fresh sound and broadened outlook, it’s undeniable he’ll continue to inspire longtime fans and convert new audiences as he delves further into what’s already been an exhilarating ride.
