“Daniel Blume from Ireland drops this fresh single from his upcoming release and it’s fairly strong to cause addiction. Feel the speed of crystal EDM melodies as they alternate turns with those deeply emotional vocals. Also craftfully enriched with various effects, this sound will drive you crazy.”

Friday 13th May 2022, London: Following the enormous response to Daniel Blume’s already impressive portfolio of ‘sad songs that bang’, new single ‘On The Side’ is the first track to be released from his forthcoming new EP.
Marking a new era for the multi-instrumentalist, writer, vocalist and producer; the release of his EP will fully allow his voice to be heard, as he pushes his art to new heights and steps out as an unstoppable artist in his own right. His story-driven debut is forged out of an experience of heartbreak and challenging times and begins with the emotive club-ready single ‘On The Side’ out today.
Daniel Blume’s reputation as one of the most exciting breakout artists in his native home of Ireland is well-established. From the release of his own singles ‘Nights Like This’, ‘Catch Feelings’ & ‘Heartbreaker’, to his collaborations with the industry’s biggest names, including global smash with Cheat Codes ‘Who’s Got Your Love’ (which has racked over 90 million global streams, topping the US Billboard Dance charts), ‘Rapture’ with Brazilian superstar producer Alok (41 million streams), and ‘Out of Time’ with Manchester’s TCTS; Blume’s energetic production style and natural knack for a soaring pop chorus has earned him comparisons to Calvin Harris and The Chainsmokers, as well as accolades from the likes of MTV (‘One To Watch’), RTÉ and The Sunday Times.
With songwriting credits for Ella Henderson and an acclaimed remix of Dermot Kennedy’s hit single ‘Giants’ showcasing his versatility, it’s only a matter of time before his own shimmering, emotional bangers become chart fixtures.
Daniel says, “‘On The Side’ was born at a time I’d been going through an experience where I was being played and strung along by somebody, and I wanted to try and channel that emotion into a really condensed and snappy vocal hook. It sat on my laptop for 2 years because I didn’t know what to do with it and then fast forward to now, it ended up being one of the key pillars that led me to discovering my sound as an artist, so it had to be the song that led this new era of my career!”
Given his talent for creating modernist dance, Blume’s background may come as a surprise. His classical training began as a child, where he earned a place at the world-renowned Yehudi Menuhin School, studying guitar and piano all funded via a scholarship set up by The Rolling Stones. At the age of 15, Daniel won the BBC’s Young Composer of the Year Award, and a glittering career in the world of classical music seemed to be his destiny. But by that point, Blume was already enamoured by the world of electronic music, with Martin Garrix’s ‘Animals’ being the track that rewrote his future.
