Listen: Teenage Donegal DJ releases new track with major European record label

first_imgTeenage Donegal DJ Cristian McDaid has released a new track with major European Record Label LithuaniaHQ.The 15-year-old Newtowncunningham man’s new track, ‘Don’t Leave’ was released this weekend to an excellent reception.Producing and DJing as Crizify, Cristian told Donegal Daily that he was delighted when the owner of LithuaniaHQ wanted to take Cristian’s music on board. “I had a rough idea for the track, I was passing it around for feedback and I sent it over to Gabrielius, the owner of LithuaniaHQ. To my surprise, he wanted to sign the track to his label and we took it from there!”Cristian puts his heart and soul into his tracks, and harnesses how he feels to produce his music.“With every track I produce, or every lyric I write, my emotions ALWAYS go into it. When I make music, I always use my emotions and how I’m feeling for inspiration.” “I wanted ‘Don’t Leave’ to have a ‘feel good’ vibe to it. When making the record, I made sure there was plenty of energy throughout the song.”His first major radio support came in December 2016, when International DJ and Producer Nicky Romero played Crizify’s remix of Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’ on over sixty radio stations, including the largest radio station in Holland, SLAM! FM.Balancing school work with his budding career can be challenging, but he is stopping at nothing to achieve excellent results in both the classroom and the studio.“Balancing school with music is not easy, but I try to keep a healthy balance. I’m in Transition Year now at Deele College. The whole staff know about what I do, and are all really supportive when it comes to music.”Cristian’s role models include Post Malone and Logic, as well as Letterkenny based DJ and producer Reuben Keeney.“Post Malone has a big influence on me, mainly because he doesn’t care what people think. Logic is another artist that stands up for what he believes in, all the time.” “Reuben has helped mould me into the artist I am today, and I am so thankful for that. Reuben is probably the best producer I know and his work ethic is on another level.”“Any artist that has a message in their music is an inspiration to me. I feel like artists, including myself, have an absolutely massive influence on people who listen to our work. One song, can literally, save a life. I hope I can influence other people to spread positivity to others.”Although he has had a few gigs, he finds them difficult to come across due to his age, although he is optimistic it’ll all come in good time.With a virtuoso flare for music production and an unwavering work ethic, we’re positive this is only the beginning for this incredible Donegal DJ.
