Ifan Dafydd to Release First Official Single
- Words: James Eaton
Though you may have already heard the music of Welsh artist Ifan Dafydd (possibly here or here), those tracks were bootleg remixes of sorts, borrowing heavily from the music of Usher and Amy Winehouse. The tunes—which some people mistakenly thought were the work of James Blake operating under an alias—were certainly an exciting introduction to the up-and-coming producer, but it won't be until the end of this month that Dafydd drops his first real single. Fledgling imprint Push & Run will release the "Treehouse" b/w "To Me" 12" on January 30. You can preview the two flitting, soulful cuts below. (Let the James Blake comparisons continue.)
