Daktyl is a British Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist, dj and producer who uses beat-driven grooves that merge hip-hop, soul, garage and bass music. Riyaaz is the new EP that is out now via Ninja Tune imprint Counter Records. Now he shared a new track titled “6 Letters” that features British duo Aquilo.
“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. “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”.
