Track Of The Week: Daktyl “Oscillate” ft. Janelle Kroll
Rising beatsmith Daktyl continues his run of enthralling releases via Counter Records with his latest single “Oscillate.” Featuring the sultry vocals of Brooklyn based singer Janelle Kroll, the song is a beautiful array of upbeat synths and drums that create a wavy vibe fitting for a dance floor or a solo jam session.
Drawing inspiration from the title’s very meaning, to move back and forth like a pendulum, this track seems to waft and pulsate as Janelle’s vocals meld together with Daktyl’s smooth production. With this alluring track, the London native has succeeded in making a sultry electronic sound that is perfect for an intimate moment. Following his recent releases, “6 Letters” featuring Aquilo and “Weather” featuring MOONZz, Daktyl is back with another piece of art, literally. Daktyl has been working with artist, Jack Vanzet, to produce mesmerizing cover art for his songs. “Oscillate” ft. Janelle Kroll is no different in establishing a unique aesthetic in conjunction with Daktyl’s sound.
Daktyl’s resume is stacked and not one to overlook with experience opening for household names such as ODESZA, Bonobo, and Giraffage and producing remixes for Major Lazer and Halsey. Fresh off performances at Paradiso and Electric Forest, Daktyl is also slated to play HARD Summer and is currently on his first-ever Australian tour, where he is playing DJ sets full of new music for fans.
For me this song is about the internal struggle we all go through in making difficult decisions in life, we all oscillate between what we consider the right or wrong choice.. and it’s those choices that make up life. Sometimes what feels like the right choice at the time can be wrong, and vice versa. It’s that feeling of uncertainty contrasted with hope that the song stemmed from.” – Daktyl
