Daktyl teams up with Aquilo for new single, ‘6 Letters’
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.
