In Spring of 2020 he released “Forget About You” which was written with fellow Angry Mob writer Isaiah Blas followed quickly by a collaboration with DJ Jovani on the single “Half Life” which was released in early March 2020. Daniel then went on to release a slew of new singles including his Summer anthem “Pink Lemonade”. Which was then remixed and released by three different artists including ANG, POPOFF and Schmarx & Savvy. By the end of Summer 2020 Daniel (DVNIEL) had released two more singles including the funky sounding “Electric Currents” and the R&B inspired “Bad Girl” which is part of his “Nightside” (Side A) EP released in November 2020. Other recent highlights include his single “Hanging On” which he collaborated with German producers and DJ’s AMIICCA, Uwe Worlitzer, and C-Ro. This synth heavy, house inspired tune features classical instruments and Daniel’s heavy vocals, creating a sound reminiscent of the Berlin house music club scene.
