Cyril Hahn – UK Tour

By

Cyril Hahn has just announced that he will be embarking on a mission to England to do 9 shows around the country. If you manage to land yourself a ticket to one of these shows you should count yourself lucky as they are selling out in record time with 6 of the 9 dates already sold out.

Hailing all the way from Switzerland but now based in Canada the up and coming artist is becoming the go-to source for artists looking for unique takes on their work (Jessie Ware, HAIM, Solange). He is well-known for his unique takes on other people’s work, and because of this had gained some interest from the likes of  The XX, Annie Mac, Rob Da Bank and Diplo. Cyril has recently also featured on BBC Radio 1, doing a guest mix for the legendary Rob da Bank.

There has been so much exposure around Cyril because of his new and unique sound that no one can quite categories. Some people have described his music as ‘trap’, ‘guilt free R&B’, and ‘morphine-paced deep house’ but there is still not one common phase that describes the beautiful music he creates. Cyril certainly breaks the mould when it comes to being pigeon-holed. Music Fix thinks this year is going to be a massive and crucial year for Cyril’s musical career. Below you can find the dates he is playing across the United Kingdom along with a few tracks for you to listen to!

The best music is made by those who expose our very guilty pleasures with undeniable, stimulating creations. This can be said of the mere samples we have received over the last twelve months from upcoming producer Cyril Hahn.



Cyril experimented early on during high school with music production and abandoned it after leaving his hometown of Bern, Switzerland to pursue his studies in Vancouver, Canada. After a 3 year hiatus from music, feeling a need to return to his former love, he sat down and did what is considered by some to be taboo: stripped down two iconic R&B songs and gave them his unique atmospheric twist: Mariah Carey’s ‘Touch My Body’ and Destiny’s Child ‘Say My Name’.

Cyril’s remixes instantly hit a nerve with internet fans and other artists after uploading to his Soundcloud, especially the Destiny’s Child anthem.  Last summer, ‘Say My Name’ hit #1 on Hype Machine, was selected as the final track by Diplo for his BBC Radio 1 mix show, and posted as a favourite on the fan page of global trendsetting group, The xx.  Annie Mac also fell in love with the song, playing it on her radio show, at many of her shows and mentioning it as one of her addictive tracks of the year. ‘Say My Name’ now has over 700,000 plays on Soundcloud, countless tribute videos with over 2 million YouTube views and is considered by many to be a favourite of 2012.

Toward the end of 2012, Cyril released 4 other remixes, which have also become crowd favourites;  a hauntingly melodious remix of UK Electropop duo Alpines single ‘Chances’, an atmospheric remix of Solange’s ‘Losing You’, the up-tempo, high-energy remix for U.S sister trio HAIM’s ‘Don’t’ Save Me’ (No.2 Hype Machine) and a remix of one of Cyril’s favourite artists, the incredible Jessie Ware and ‘Sweet Talk.



2013 started with a bang after Rob da Bank kicked-off Radio 1’s New Music Takeover with a guest mix from Cyril, including his latest remix of Gabrielle Aplin ‘Please Don’t Say You Love Me’. And now we aspire to give the many loyal, patient, and supportive fans what they have been asking for months:  Cyril Hahn’s debut tour. Expect to hear your favourite track or remix along with a memorable, addictive collection of mood inducing selections with that unique Cyril Hahn twist.

Let Cyril continue to feed your guilty pleasures with memorable shows & music for years to come
