Premiere: Daithí’s new songs featuring Paul Noonan of Bell X1 & The Sei mark a milestone moment in his career

Daithí’s evolution as an artist over the past 5 years has been prolific to say the least.

Every release from the producer has felt like the next stage in a journey, beginning with the likes of tracks like ‘Case Closed’ in 2013. Since then, audiences have been lucky enough to bear witness to one of the most creative voices in contemporary dance music expand and develop.

With the release of this brand new double A-side single, ‘Take The Wheel’ & ‘In My Darkest Moments’, it feels as if Daithí has hit a milestone moment in his career.

Both tracks showcase the artist’s skill as both a composer and producer. The brooding ‘Take The Wheel’, which features Paul Noonan of Bell X1, uses swirling synthscapes to map the lyrical content of the track. It’s dance music, but instead of pandering to established formulas, the beat is subservient to the words.

‘In My Darkest Moments’, which features The Sei, approaches the dance music tradition from the opposite angle. Its relentless bass line and deep kick drums finds Daithi sounding as industrial & focused as ever. A chopped vocal sample sits atop the smattering of piano keys, adding depth and color. It’s a superb track, the artist’s best work to date.

Also including a b-side consisting of a remix of ‘Take The Wheel’, courtesy of Kobina, and an edit of ‘In My Darkest Moments’ this release will delight long time fans of the producer and offer plenty of fantastic material to intice new ones.

Daithí also explained the background of the album in a series of tweets yesterday.
