You might recognise Daithí from his brushes with TV talent shows (TG4’s The All-Ireland Talent Show). Or his appearances the length and breadth of Ireland (to crammed festival tents, or supporting the likes of DJ Shadow, Santigold, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, De La Soul and Todd Terje). Or you might have heard some of his studio excursions with various members of the country’s close-knit underground community (Elaine Mai, Liza Flume, Monto, the Breaking Bread collective).
He of the the fiddle-playing, house-making, loopstation-tweaking, button-pushing, hair-flicking bundle of energy fame will be playing from 2pm this Saturday, 7th June in the big window of Tower Records, Dawson Street, Dublin to celebrate the release of his debut album, ‘In Flight’, which is out today.
