IFAN DAFYDD | Treehouse / To Me

Though you may have already heard the music of Welsh artist Ifan Dafydd (possibly here or here), those tracks were bootleg remixes of sorts, borrowing heavily from the music of Usher and Amy Winehouse. The tunes—which some people mistakenly thought were the work of James Blake operating under an alias—were certainly an exciting introduction to the up-and-coming producer, but it won’t be until the end of this month that Dafydd drops his first real single. Fledgling imprint Push & Run will release the “Treehouse” b/w “To Me” 12” on January 30.

Last night I was stumblin’ through blog to blog to see what’s good going on. I haven’t touched upon XLR8R Mag in a long time and I’m glad I did last night because I found this gem in their feeds. This guy, Ifan Dafydd is one of those hidden underground UK producers that come out of nowhere and just blow your mind. I didn’t know what to expect but I first thought of James Blake - of course. The whole aesthetic of his style is all disoriented in an slow electronic soulful way. It’s catchy, really. Though this is just a stream of both songs previewed into a single track, you can really grasp a look & feel of what this guy has going on. Also…

"No, he’s not James Blake."

Can’t wait for this single to drop out on PUSH & RUN and I know I’ll have it on repeat. The stream is already just as good. Check out Ifan Dafydd and you might like him as much as I do.
