Daktyl returns to Counter Records this April after releasing his standout Riyaaz EP on February 9th and received great support from Dancing Astronaut. This time the LA-based producer/ multi-instrumentalist teams up with talented UK-based duo Aquilo (who are currently on tour and have received great support for the likes of Mixmag, Rolling Stone & BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens in the past) on new single ‘6 Letters’. The outcome is a perfect blend of two different musical styles coming together to create a stunning new track.

“This song began in the rain in Worcestershire, England in early 2016. Then I got in the studio with Aquilo in London about half a year later and we laid down the vocals,” comments Daktyl. Adding, “I put the finishing touches on it a year later in a cabin in Yosemite Forest, California. At all three times and places I was very deeply in love with a person, and this song is a snapshot of that emotion and all the pitfalls it entails”.
“A few years ago Daktyl remixed a song of ours that we were really into”, said Aquilo, “Eventually we found ourselves in the studio together for an afternoon and this is what came of it“.
Daktyl & Aquilo “6 Letters” is out now via Counter Records.
