Daire Patel

Hip Hop // Maynooth, Kildare

A 22 year old artist influenced by Mac Miller and Frank Ocean, Daire Patel combines a hip-hop feel with a lo-fi bedroom pop sound. Of his three 2019 tracks, his Christmas Day 2019 release 'Hold Me Down' is just about to break 250k Spotify plays. 2020’s releases kicked off with the exquisite ‘Sirens’, immediately appearing on a selection of influential playlists and enjoying radio play on RTE and BBC, as well as being placed on the acclaimed Irish drama series 'Smother'. The later part of the year saw him being invited to take part in RTE's Illuminations project, a cultural responses to world events, to which he contributed his collaboration with producer 1000 Beats 'Summer In The City'.

2021 saw him play online shows for Music Town and Eye On The Edge festivals, before entering the studio with producer Silent Ghost to begin work on his debut EP Pretty Sweet, the first results to be found in new single ‘Blue’ and shows alongside the likes of Negro Impacto, Ahmed With Love, Bobbi Arlo, Tebi Rex and Wallfella. With over 800,000 streams already under his belt on Spotify alone, the results are being keenly anticipated by both the audience at large and those in the music industry keeping a watchful eye.
