Artist of the week: Danrell
Happy Friday folks! I’ve got an electronic artist by the name of Danrell to share with you this week! He’s an alternative electronic music producer hailing from Sweden. While his production doesn’t have any distinctive characteristics at the moment, he definitely has a unique sense of savviness within his music. I’ve heard a lot of comparisons to Lemaitre, a more well-known artist from Norway. This comparison is definitely evident in the track I discovered Danrell by, titled “Blame It All On Me”:
As I said above, Danrell isn’t limited to the bouncy and unbridled joy of “Blame It All On Me”. As a young artist, it seems he’s yet to develop a signature sound, but he seems extremely adept at playing with a variety of styles. This includes making much more straightforward pop songs. In “Hostage”, he mellows out a bit to deliver a chilled out tune with hints of nostalgia:
Finally, Danrell isn’t afraid to remix other artists’ work in addition to producing his own music. Many artists have taken a stab at remixing Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition”, but I think you’ll be hard pressed to find a more inventive take than Danrell’s. His use of relaxed guitar strums really transforms the song while maintaining the pop sensibilities that made the original so catchy. Pro-tip: This one is absolutely fantastic for runs or bike rides!
