Perhaps the most peculiar thing upon meeting multi instrumentalist and remix maven Daktyl is the ambiguous edge at which he stands as a musician who’s released records on bass booming label Mad Decent, toured with celebrated acts as ODESZA, Bonobo, Troyboi and Giraffage, rubbed shoulders with Diplo, and produced remixes for powerhouse artists like Major Lazer and Halsey.
Starting at a young age, Daktyl began producing beats in the UK 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.
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. Online his music has received tens of millions of streams. It’s an impressive list of accolades that prove he’s only just getting started. 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.
