Galway-based producer Daithi has released his newest EP “Tribes” on the 26th of February and it is already selling out. His opening track to the EP “Mary Kenane’s Introduction” was a surprise hit for the Clare man and has prompted him to further exploration of his own surroundings.
The five track EP contains a collaboration with friend Elaine Mai on “Rocamadour” a beat heavy electronic track you see yourself dancing to in a late night club. Daithi has also teamed up with rising star Sinead White on two tracks; the disclosure-esk “Love’s on Top” and spacey and atmospheric “April”.Daithi has said he loves working with Sinead because she sounds so contemporary Irish. The remaining track 1995 is an instrumental homage to electronic music of the day.
We spoke to Daithi in the New Year about the upcoming EP, his collaborations and his new show. You can read it here
What “Tribes” demonstrates is Daithi’s progression since “In Flight”. We still have the collaborations, we still have the danceable tracks but we have a move away from the perfectionism on “In Flight” to something that allows both producer and vocalist to move and fully express themselves. Daithi has clearly been studying hard and this EP shows a dedication to innovation and exploration of his art form.
You can follow Daithi on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as he travels along the Wild Atlantic way gathering soundscapes, inspiration and a further appreciation for the place he calls home.
