Slow Magic is music by your imaginary friend.
Allured by pulsing incantations of cassette grain and VHS blips, live instrumentation and other found sounds, Kodak To Graph’s Michael Maleki (22), delicately floats listeners through blooming clouds of synth-washes, haunting reverberations and propulsive rhythms.
Maleki’s candle-waxed R&B and flower-trailed soundscapes weave together the nostalgic tones and colors reminiscent of a quiet childhood with the urban bounce and rhythmic disposition of the more modern spirit.
Daktyl uses his multi-instrumentalist talents and diverse musical background to make insane beat driven grooves of a new future sound, merging Hip-hop, Soul, Garage and Bass.
2014 has already been a huge year for Daktyl, with releases on Mad Decent, Die High Records and Cosmonostro, shows all over the world and a guest mix for Toddla T on BBC Radio 1. He has supported Lunice, XXYYXX, Baauer, The Artful Dodger, closed for The Bloody Beetroots in the main room at KoKo London and has received extensive exposure on taste making underground radio station Rinse FM alongside pioneering DJs such as Plastician.
This goes no short way in describing Daktyl’s hunger for the future, with releases forthcoming on various labels coming soon. Keep a sharp eye out for Daktyl.
