daithi-whelans-3With his Debut album hitting the shops in the past few days, it’s been a very exciting couple of years for Galway based Daithí, this week’s Irish Artist of the Week. Electro Dance Fiddler (no it’s not a typo) Daithí O’Dronaí embraces a summer love of pure dance with his debut album ‘In Flight’.

No stranger to talent shows, having reached the finals of both The All Ireland Talent show and Must be the Music in the UK, Daithí’s progression in the 4 years since has been nothing but astounding.

Turning up this week with iTunes single of the week with Case Closed feat Senita, it’s certainly going to be a big year for this experimental music maker. Aiming himself at a definite niche in the Irish market, an obvious lack of talented dance music creators, but can Daithí possibly open the door or inspire some younger music lovers to head in the dance direction.

Released through Sony Records, ‘In Flight’ pieces together some smooth electro grooves with the help of some amazing vocalists along the way. Not one for hitting the mic himself, his selection of singers really hits the spot across the album.

Keep up to date with everything Daithí on his Facebook page.
