At just 23 years of age composer, keyboardist, JDXL otherwise known as John-Daniel Powell and has already chalked up a remarkable list of musical achievements including his own radio show.

From the age of 15 he has been a professional pianist and has gone on to write, record and mix his own electronic music.

After literally falling through the roof of the Creative and Dreams studio he began working with with the company’s CEO and music supremo Fred Cannon who has previously worked closely with artists such as Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley and Donna Summer, he is now releasing his second single Disappear.

A chilled electronic sound with elements of the 90’s coming through combined with a little musical wizardry and cheeky key change mid-track it wouldn’t be out of place in any club classic set.

As with his debut single Rather Be With there is sense of trepidation or experimental caution that’s moving towards something truly outstanding, a tread lightly there is more to come impression.

It’s clear that JDXL has found his playground and now all that’s left is for him to play.

Disappear is set for release on all platforms from May 3rd.
