Following an eventful life, Australian DJ/producer CYRIL is currently enjoying an exciting and remarkable claim to fame with “Stumblin’ In.” Revamping the 1978 pop tune into a sun drenched deep house gem, the song recently sparked up massive support on TikTok, from Australia and New-Zealand fans to German football team Bayern Munich sharing a video featuring the song. Now, freshly signed to Spinnin’, CYRIL is ready to make further moves, beware as this aussie is stumblin’ in for a next milestone!
Safe to say, CYRIL has come a long way. Already DJ’ing and making music since he was a teenager, the Darwin based artist did not enjoy an effortless career, as he struggled with addictions and personal turmoil, causing him to abandon his musical aspirations for many moments. Nevertheless, he’s always kept his laptop and guitar close to him, keeping the dream alive until he got clean and started releasing music two years ago.
Making his way up with several inventive electronic tunes, this year’s “Stumblin’ In” proved a major breakthrough for CYRIL. Kickstarted by a TikTok video that amassed an incredible 3.3 million views, 156k comments and 37.3k saves, things started rolling for CYRIL, culminating in the Bayern Munich football team posting a video featuring the track, while thousands of other people hopped on a jamming trend using the track in their content.
As a result, CYRIL’s streams went through the roof. “Stumblin’ In” now counts 700k streams on Spotify, and more than 420k plays on SoundCloud. From a modest 3k following on Spotify when the track was released, early November, CYRIL has moved to 150k followers, making his triumphal path the more impressive – and anticipation for the future higher than ever.
Sure enough, “Stumblin’ In” has proved the perfect antidote for this year’s autumn blues, employing the upbeat vibe of the eponymous 1978 pop smash for a similarly uplifting, sun drenched deep house gem, lighting up the hearts of everyone it comes across.
Effectively, freshly signed at Spinnin’ Records, CYRIL is now eager to raise the bar with every new release. While “Stumblin’ In” is still gaining traction, expect more of his newfound energy to be unleashed in the upcoming year, as he’s got loads more tunes lined up for 2024. It’s a journey worth joining him on, as this Australian artist is sure to surprise us all with his strong and remarkable return to shape – his story has only just begun.
