On Friday, December 27... Daithi is back... and we can't wait!!
Daithí is an electronic music producer obsessed by the culture of Ireland. The two time choice award nominee combines nature recordings, old Irish samples and analog synths to create a unique type of house music that’s soaked in Irish culture. A mainstay in the Irish gigging scene, his live show is an improvised performance, creating on the spot dance music using synths, drum machines and live fiddle. Last year, Daithí found a forgotten recording of his grandmother, where she talked about how she met her husband, and what it was like living in the west of Ireland for the past 90 years. Daithí sampled this recording to create ‘Mary Keanes Introduction’, a track which captured the imagination of millions of Irish people across the world, and became one of the most successful Irish singles that year, staying no.1 in the spotify viral charts for 6 weeks.
It proved Daithi’s mantra on music: Every sample should have a back story, and every song should be personal.
"Daithí O’Dronai’s electronic pop has moved into deeper and richer places over the years but none more than this song featuring the Bell X1 singer on vocals. Inspired by loss and the breakup of a relationship, Daithí wrote his most personal music to date and one of the results is this sweeping and pulsing songs that is both elegiac and epic." (Niall Byrne, The Irish Times, on new single 'Take The Wheel")
"Daithí has developed a musical and visual style that is unparalleled in its exploration of rural pressures, post-Celtic Tiger Ireland and masculinity. His latest tracks have bridged the difficult gap between Daithí's trad background and the ethereal, lingering soundscapes that have made him one of the most instantly recognisable electronic producers in the country." - Peter McGoran, Hot Press
