Since dropping his debut 12" on Push & Run, Ifan Dafydd has been turning a few influential heads and with good reason: 'Miranda' comes on with the precise vocal chops of early James Blake material layered over warm basslines and panned-out clicks, snaps and drifting piano. The production is tight and leaves plenty of hard-working space to engage the listener. Whilst the James Blake comparison is the easy, and perhaps dangerously obvious, one to make there is an inherent originality to Dafydd's tunes which suggest that he will take the hard-to-pin-down sound in a fresh direction.
