The acclaimed producer returns next month with a new EP.
Irish electronic producer John Daly has announced a new release under the banner of his Unity Surrender project – Freedom EP, out next month.
From techno to ambient, and hip-hop to deep house, Daly has built up a reputation as one of the country's most compelling producers – expanding his sound alongside his audience. Unity Surrender, his latest project, sees him featuring his own vocals for the first time.
Over the course of his career, Daly has worked with an impressive selection of Irish and international labels, including Francois K's Wave Music, All City, Drumpoet Community, Craigie Knowes and Secretsundaze. He has also contributed tracks to the likes of Plak, Mule Musiq, and Further Records, as well as his own cult label Feel Music.
"We need more positive uplifting music," Daly says of Freedom's title track. "All this agro in the world is just not doing us any good. Peace and love is a much better option. I was fooling around with the vocal synth putting acapellas through it. The results were great, but when I started experimenting with my own vocals I was blown away by how expressive I could be with the technology. I'd been threatening to sing for years, but didn't have the guts. Now I can hide behind the vocal synth, it's perfect.”
Freedom is out on September 7.
