Arlø of Tik Tok’s Cameo Club Goes Solo With Release of “Fall”
Dillon Scheel, the Deep House producer behind Cameo Club’s 2020 success, “Castaway,”
is launching a new solo project under the name Arlø. The track “Castaway” gained
momentum on Tik Tok last summer when it was featured in over 500 videos receiving
more than 8 million total views. It also amassed 2 Million Spotify Streams.
Arlø’s new track, “Fall,” carries the same dancefloor energy as “Castaway,” but contains
more of Dillon’s personal character. The song features Dillon’s own vocals, which are
honest and engaging, as well as soulful melodies and harmonies. As for his production,
Arlø offers tastefully crafted sounds that stand out from generic house production. “Fall”
makes you dance, but it also has real feeling. Its uplifting energy will elevate any party,
club, or event.
Arlø is using the COVID-19 lockdown as an opportunity to finish as much music as
possible. “It’s been kind of freeing to have no pressure on timing. I have been able to lock
into my creativity without feeling rushed.” “Fall” is the first of a string of singles he plans
to release in the coming months to establish his new Deep House brand.
Arlø is the stage name of singer/songwrtiter,
guitarist, and producer Dillon Scheel. Dillon is based
out of San Fransisco, California, where he grew up.
He is in his fourth and final year studying music
production at the Berklee College of Music.
Dillon trained as a jazz guitarist from the age of 10.
Then, while in high school, he developed a passion
for songwriting. He took inspiration from 70s pop
and disco artists that his parents were always
playing in the background. He really developed an
appreciation for the hits of artists like Stevie Wonder
and Earth Wind & Fire. Finally, at the age of 16, Dillon
fell in love with Electronic Dance Music after going to
the Outside Lands music festival in San Francisco.
Dillon brings his knowledge of jazz harmony and
his love for old school tunes to the modern dance
music scene. There’s a richness in harmony and
melody in every one of his tracks. His deep bass
production is a welcome contrast to offset the
catchy songwriting and it satisfies the listener’s
desire for that extra edge. The resulting
combination is addictive.
Arlø’s use of simplicity emphasizes the most
important elements of his productions: clear
vocal hooks and bass drops. There is a moment in
every Arlø track where the listener will stop and
ask “What song is that?”
