Dajals takes listeners on a progressive sonic journey in latest album, ‘Assigned Galaxy’
Supporting new, never-before-heard talent is one of CE‘s central missions. That’s why we’re always excited to happen across a promising artist. Still making his way onto the dance music scene, Dajals is a Chilean DJ/producer based in New York. Now he’s just released an exciting new album in Assigned Galaxy that spans his professional career—from his progressive metal band days, through to his solo piano, all the way to the spacey progressive house sound he has currently landed on.
Drawing on the sonic influences of Dubfire, Patrice Baumel, and Eric Prydz, Assigned Galaxy shows listeners how Dajal’s musical style has progressed and developed over the years, forming a cohesive and complex piece of work through six diverse electronic tracks. The album also features guest vocals from POCURO and Dajals’ own younger brother Renzo Alba, adding a sentimental edge to this riveting listen.
Starting his career as a keyboard player in a metal band, Dajals has also had a successful career as a solo pianist performing under the alias of Franco Albertini. Throughout his professional career, the experienced musician has reached millions of streams with arrangements of video game songs for piano as well as worked in a multi-artist collaboration project with writer/author Ian Urbina to create music for his New York Times bestseller book, The Outlaw Ocean.
Dajals made his electronic debut with his album, Sand, which was followed by his Rivers EP back in May. With Dajals, Franco can be seen exploring progressive and deep house, along with some melodic techno. Along the way, he also takes you on a dynamic and fully embodied sonic journey.
