Daley Showcase

IMG_3854

Back in July last year I wrote about Daley and I was supposed to see him last September. So I was definitely bumped out when I heard the concert was moved (to effing 6 months later), because he had a better gig in London (okay, I do understand that a sold out O2 in London is a bit more exciting than little Vega in Copenhagen…)

In all my madness, I wrote Daley a message and surprisingly I got a reply too 😎

Well to make a long story short, I returned my tickets. Who plans for anything that far ahead? But he happened to play in Amsterdam again (since the original showcase there was also cancelled) during the Easter break and my sister was so nice to get me a ticket (dank je :D).

The showcase was great, it was small and intimate. Sometimes you could hear a penny drop, because everybody was so quiet, in the positive sense of the word though. Daley is a great artist and I hope that he’ll be able to turn his free mixtape into a great commercial success with his first album.

I wasn’t really impressed by my own photographic skills during the VETO concert in Aarhus, everything kept being too blurry or too dark. So I digged into all I could find about concert photography and below is the result. I think I still need some practice on it, but also be more daring and move around in the public to catch some different angles.

PS: here his version of Usher’s Climax.

I hope that you haven’t crossed into any black cats today (and if you did, you didn’t die since you are reading my blog)..

My sister suggested Daley to me the other day and I got to say she hit the jackpot with him! He’s able to capture that 90s R&B flow (the one that Usher apparently didn’t find, since his new album is a piece of crap) and he does it soo effortless. You can download his mixtape on his website and it sounds darn good, I hope that he can capture this vibe on his first real album.

I often feel that artist have a hard time transforming their original (mixtape) sound into something profitable/commercial (Theophilius London anyone?!). You can complain and argue how they shouldn’t become commercial, but also them need to feed themselves right? But it is about holding on to that feeling that got you more commercial to begin with and not to choose the easy (euro pop/house) way out..

Best part about this? He is coming to Copenhagen! The 20th of September he will perform at Ideal Bar (I like it that they booked him for such a cosy venue) next to Vega and tickets only cost 115 kroner! You can buy your tickets HERE
