Daktyl announces The Act of Hesitation EP/Hear title track

Daktyl – the most recent signing to Counter Records, will release his new EP “The Act of Hesitation” on 20th June 2017.

Having cut his teeth remixing acts like Major Lazer, Halsey, Machinedrum and Japanese Wallpaper; the producer and multi-instrumentalist received early praise from the likes of Billboard, Rolling Stone (who listed him as one of their “Artists to Watch”) and Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’ on Radio 1.

“The Act Of Hesitation” however represents a marked shift from the the bass-heavy, jungle-driven tracks for which he is best known. Facing a decision to move from his adopted home of London to the shores of Los Angeles, he found himself questioning not only whether to leave behind friends and family to pursue his career, but also where exactly he wanted that career to take him. “I was going in a direction I wasn’t completely happy with” he explains “and hesitating a lot about whether to continue down that path or try to start on the creative path I’ve wanted to be on for years.” Having decided to make the move, he reacquainted himself with his singer-songwriter background, returning to a fundamental approach to his music – the result is a sonically distinct yet satisfying divergence from his previous material.
