Biography – DanyloM
Coming from a highly musical family, it’s no surprise that DanyloM was born with perfect pitch.
From a very young age, the pianist extraordinaire enjoyed classical music and first got in touch with Jazz at the age of 14.
From that day one, he dived deeper and deeper into this completely new world and studied it on his own until he got admitted to Glier Music Academy in Kiev, where he was taught professionally.
Discovering his love for “weird” styles of music and driving rhythms, he connected to bands and artists in the Electro Swing genre and started uploading videos of his own playing on Tik Tok, where one day “Electro Swing Thing” owner Wolfgang Lohr stumbled upon his profile and found his way into his inbox.
DanyloM has been releasing several original tracks, remixes, and collaborations with the label since and describes the whole experience as “a dream come true”, planning to produce even more high-quality music in that style he enjoys so much.
