John Daly – Paradise b/w Crystal Visions [FE102]

The Feel Music reboot continues with two new tracks from label boss John Daly. Continuing to push his tempo faster, while at the same time producing some of his deepest work yet. “Paradise” has been a live staple for a while, and it has definitely earned its spot on the label, rocking floors all over the place for some time now. “Crystal Visions” on the other side is the kind of deep trip you only get on Feel Music.

The Smoke Clears – S/T [ACTSCLPX1]

The Smoke Clears is the abstract ambient project of producer John Daly. He debuted this alias with an eponymous LP in 2013 on Further Records and this is a part 2. Following up his 2013 LP of the same name, this record builds upon it’s predecessor’s ambient abstractions while adding another layer of nuanced melodic contemplation. Kicking off with “Fathoms” a deceptively calm track but with a paced sense of urgency which is evident throughout the LP, belying it’s calm undertones. Continuing at this pace for the rest of the first side the LP takes a side turn with the lush “Slipstream” melting into the only vocal track of the LP – the dubbed out bliss of “Oh My Days” featuring Cian Finn. Showcasing a side that might not be so familiar, this is lush downtempo machine music equally as at home cranked up one louder soundsystem style, or for late night home listening.

John Daly – Shine EP [LFR009]

Irish maestro John Daly kicks of the new year with a release on Love Fever Records. Layered, progressive, modern electronic music with ethereal harmonics and a nod to analogue forefathers is a universal in John Daly’s musical cannon. And with Shine he’s formulated a song that could encapsulate a moment in time at a Love Fever party. That 5am throb. Peaks and lows of a breather in the night, the sweating crowd, the stabbing baseline and fluctuating strings played loud and proud.   In short an unstoppable single from a producer on the very top of his game. A Detroit influenced yet clearly very contemporary release with strong support already on this one.

John Daly – Second Knight [TANSPLAN004]

Irishman John Daly takes a rare break from his One Track label and delivers his magic to the Tanstaafl Planets imprint. Floating house and spacey techno on the b-side that seamlessly merge Daly and Tanstaafl’s aesthetics, while the A-side delivers a pulse-raising new fusion of jacking swing and dubby synths.
