FRESH: ‘Bloodletting’ – Danny George

Danny George releases “Bloodletting”

Following on from the success of his Complex supported single “Sincerity”, Danny George returns with another stand out track, an introspective song detailing a narrative of dependence. “Bloodletting” continues to demonstrate the young producer’s prowess as an instrumentalist as well as a maturing song writer with an effervescent soul, expertly capturing the feeling of falling in and out of love in this modern digital age. “I wanted to encapsulate the ecstatic feeling of exploiting an urge you know you shouldn’t. Without giving too much away to what the song means to me, it centres around the story of someone with an addiction, doing whatever it takes to get to that place and the nirvana they reach when they get to it”.

Seemingly always onto the next project at hand, Danny has been making waves as a producer and writer these last few years, working with promising newcomers Ayelle, Malory and Latir amongst others. The resulting music has garnered him a PRS for Music Production Music Award (2019 – Best Acoustic/Pop Rock Track) as well as write ups by Wonderland, Clash, The 405, The Line of Best Fit and Dork. With his own music now very much in the forefront, George is quickly emerging as an artist in his own right. His first two solo tracks “Close To You” and “Say Something” helped cement his place as one to watch after being picked up by leading YouTube channels Nourish. and Apeiron – these uploads have culminated in over a million streams, with “Say Something” gaining over 165,000 Spotify streams so far.

“Bloodletting” is the fourth single from Danny’s “Crushed Comfort” EP – the complete project is scheduled for an April release. Honing his talent over the last few years in the melting pot of London, Danny George uprooted to the vibrant creative haven of Berlin to further compliment his search for inspiration and creativity. With a hard drive full of unreleased material, the British born singer dived into his eclectic mix of influences to create a signature genre-bending style of his own. Combining his love for live instrumentation, sampling and the organic use of field recordings, he creates a warm, sultry bed of sound that falls into place overtop his lush and colourful arrangements.

Defined by its title as an oxymoron, detailing the dangerous parallels of comfort and chaos, the “Crushed Comfort” EP takes you on a journey through the demise of a relationship at its crossroads. Self-produced by George, with him taking the lead role in every aspect of its creation, the record is a debut not to be missed. With plenty more material to follow, this first EP is an ellipsis of sorts to pave the way for George’s exploration through even more sonic landscapes. Danny’s work as a producer for Malory has also recently gained him a PRS for Music Production Music Award (2019 – Best Acoustic/Pop Rock Track). During this time he’s also found success producing award-nominated compositions for film and TV.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
