DANIEL BARON BREAKS BOUNDARIES ON NEW ALBUM

WEEKEND OF MASS DESTRUCTION - COVER ART
Multi-chart-topping prodigy Daniel Baron is no stranger to pushing the envelope of pop music, and holds nothing back in his latest offering. 16 June 2017 (Youth Day) marked the worldwide release of his highly anticipated third studio album ‘Weekend Of Mass Destruction’, which debuted in the Top 10 of the iTunes album chart.

The monumental radio hit singles ‘Beautiful Noise’ and ‘Children Of The Sun’ (SA TOP40 #1 Hit) form only the ‘tip-of-the-iceberg’ in this explosive culmination of genre-jumping acrobatics he is famous for. Cinematic string sections unveil hard- style drops and collide with African deep house beats. Addictive pop-infused hooks belted out by Baron’s metallic vocals form contrast to an array of organic dance with a near Middle-Eastern flare erupting in cross-cultural fireworks.

It’s an intricate but fearlessly crafted masterpiece as apt as the lyric “I like to play with fire” in the untamed rock/EDM hybrid ‘Pyromaniac’, and as honest as the hip-hop inspired soul-baring ‘Piano Off The Roof’.

Baron’s signature youthful choirs echo through-out the alluring intro ‘Pink Atomic Symphony’ as well as the anthemic title track ‘Weekend’, which delivers the album’s constant parallel theme of celebrating love and destroying hate in one colossal earth-shaking party.
“Love is the reason that we can Armageddon on the dance floor”, sings Daniel, adding a pertinent and prophetic message of biblical proportions: “If we don’t love there’s gonna be a rapture.”

Daniel speaks about his experience creating his latest work:

“I have never been as proud of anything in my life as I am of this album. I have

never worked this hard. I’ve put everything behind this project, and I have all faith in it. My only goal with this, is prove that music can create peace and love, and bring enemies together in one dance.”

The chameleon of music — Baron remains a maverick on his love/war-path. “Weekend Of Mass Destruction” releases exclusively to Apple Music & iTunes, with 1000 limited edition autographed physical CD’s up for order.

DANIEL BARON RELEASES FOLLOW-UP TO RECENT NUMBER 1 HIT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 30 September 2016

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

DANIEL BARON RELEASES FOLLOW-UP TO RECENT NUMBER 1 HIT

This year People Magazine named him “one of South Africa’s greatest pop stars” and now the hit-maker is set to storm the charts once again with a brand new addictive summer tune titled ‘Beautiful Noise’.

Following the mega success of his 2016 number 1 dance anthem ‘Children Of The Sun’ — which topped the charts on most radio stations and became one of the most played and downloaded songs in South Africa, also gaining attention throughout Africa, India and Europe — Baron has struck again with something fresher and ‘house-ier’ than anything he has done so far.

The song shows off a more emotional and alluring side to his voice, with a backdrop of stripped down South African house rhythms, and a bass-line that will get anyone on their feet. Daniel’s mastery shines bright throughout as he combines these elements so flawlessly to form something that is undeniably a ‘Beautiful Noise’.

“Instead of using a range of electronic elements I decided to use my voice to create different synth sounds which eventually formed the main hook. I’ve realized that sometimes simplicity is so much more powerful in music.” says Daniel who is currently embarking on his nationwide tour which kicked off in Cape Town in August, and now continues to Johannesburg (7 October, Madison Avenue Rivonia), Durban (8 October, Tiger Tiger), Johannesburg (29 October, Burning Carnival Festival), East London (26 November) and Jeffery’s Bay (28 December) — with more dates still to be announced.

‘Beautiful Noise’ is available exclusively on iTunes and Apple Music:

DANIEL BARON DEBUTS AND CONQUERS WITH NEW HIT

18 June 2016 – South Africa

DANIEL BARON DEBUTS AND CONQUERS WITH NEW HIT 

Local star and multi-genre singer-songwriter Daniel Baron has broken yet another record for his own books. His latest tune ‘Children Of The Sun’, which is fast becoming one of SA’s favourite dance anthems, has entered the 5FM TOP 30 Chart at the number 1 position.

“It is a very rare occurrence when a song enters a chart at the top spot and I have my fans to thank for the incredible support they have given me.” says Baron, who is not new to chart success. ‘Children Of The Sun’ will mark his fourth number 1 hit, among other well-known offerings such as ‘Not Here’ featuring rap star ProVerb, and the successful collaboration ‘Say What You Want’ with supergroup ADAM.

It has not always been easy-sailing for the chart-topper. “I started writing songs and playing gigs at the age of fifteen, and after being turned down by a few record labels back then I decided to do it all on my own. Its been a very long and hard journey to get to where I am today, but its all been worth it.”

‘Children Of The Sun’ is also charting on most other radio stations across South Africa and last week the song became the second most downloaded SA dance track on iTunes. Daniel’s other achievements include winning a Wawela Music Award for Best Male Singer/Songwriter, opening for Bon Jovi, and writing songs for other artists and adverts including the DStv theme song ‘So Much More’.

Chart-topper, Daniel Baron Releases Deep-House Single

25 APRIL 2016 - JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

CHART-TOPPER, DANIEL BARON RELEASES DEEP-HOUSE SINGLE

Following the major success of his debut and sophomore albums, critically acclaimed South African singer-songwriter, Daniel Baron has released his latest offering: a catchy deep-house anthem titled ‘Children Of The Sun’. The highly anticipated single has been made available digitally on iTunes and all other online download platforms.

Known for crossing-over genres and his multitude of chart-topping hits such as ‘Indestructible’‘Not Here (Feat. ProVerb) and DStv theme song ‘So Much More’; Baron now ventures into dance territory with this captivating and club-destroying tune. Canyon-deep basslines rise into anthemic vocal choruses that aptly feature a choir of children from the Stageworx School Of Performing Arts.

“The song is all about celebrating life while we are here on this planet. People may have their differences but in the end we are all ‘Children Of The Sun’ and sometimes we just need to let our hair down and have a party.” Says Daniel, who has recently returned from a promotional and songwriting trip around the US. “I came up with a large portion of the song’s concept whilst travelling and exploring different sounds overseas, yet it still carries a homegrown local flavour.”

Daniel Baron has not only become a household name locally, he has achieved major radio-play in Holland, Belgium and Greeceand has written songs for a number of movie theme soundtracks, including US film STUCK and local blockbuster Vir Altyd. Among other nominations he won a Wawela Award for Best Male Artist & Songwriter, and in 2013 he was selected as opening act for Bon Jovi.

This week Daniel added another #1 hit to his catalogue with his first-ever Afrikaans song ‘Hart’.

Whether he’s performing his own hits to audiences around the world (UK, US, Switzerland and Zambia) or penning and producing songs for other artists, everything he touches turns into another triumph. With his experimental and rule-breaking nature, there is no telling where this hit-maker could venture to next.

After the success of ADAM and Daniel Baron’s smash hit SAY WHAT YOU WANT the YOUNG AND WILD EP continues this chapter.  Because of the nationwide support and public demand, this single (that was merely going to be a once-off), turned into a collection of six English songs that will take the listener on an incredible journey through up tempo anthems to emotional ballads, bound to give you goose bumps. Through-out the EP it is clear that both ADAM and Daniel Baron’s different sounds have joined cohesively to become something recognizable and fresh at the same time.

YOUNG AND WILD carries the positive message that life is short, so we all need to kiss the ground, have a good time, fall in love, and live it up like we’re young and wild.

“When two or more minds start to collaborate and create songs, the product usually turns into something larger than expected, and working on Young & Wild, I feel we have combined our crafts to create some of the best songs we have ever written.  In the end, all that we have set out to do is create good songs that relate to where we are in our lives and they happen to be easy to sing along to. We hope the world will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”Daniel Baron

“This EP brings together two very distinct sounds in ADAM and Daniel and yet with the final product it sounds like we have been writing and performing together forever. Definitely the most exhilarating project we’ve ever worked on and with some of our most personal songs yet; combined with the production genius of Robin Kiely, makes this an album that we will forever be proud of.“ Hugo Ludik – ADAM

“I love that the guys are open to exploring the industry.  They teamed up for a song, it became a hit and now, they’re making it work to their advantage.  I’m super stoked to hear what the guys have come up with”El Broide – People Magazine
