Media Highlights –
Take A Daytrip / MONTERO

“From classmates to music greats, hitmakers Denzel Baptiste and David Biral of genre-bending production duo Take A Daytrip are the Grammy-nominated creative geniuses.”
“Produced by a team of young studio wizards led by the duo Take a Daytrip, the album might be the year’s most beautifully constructed, with crisp beats, vivid textures and hooks nestled inside hooks (nestled inside hooks).”
Los Angeles Times
“Together, Take A Daytrip and Lil Nas X have developed both a creative process and friendship that has paved the way for one of the year’s most anticipated albums.”
Rolling Stone
“Like many songs on Montero, [Dead Right Now] was produced by Take A Daytrip, a duo whose signature sound feels like a synthetic horn-blaring triumphal procession, a regal and ostentatious wave sweeping across the land.

The Production Duo David Biral and Denzel Baptiste


From humble beginnings in the NYU dorms to working alongside some of the biggest stars of the last decade, the producer duo Take A Daytrip sit at the center of music culture. David Biral and Denzel Baptiste became friends during the first week of freshman year at NYU in 2011, bonding over music and genre collisions. They’re musical omnivores who do their best to inhabit the world of the sound they’re working on, from afrobeats to grime, latin trap to garage, country to pop.
That appetite manifests itself in their work on Sheck Wes’ 5x Platinum “Mo Bamba,” on country star Kane Brown’s recent genre-bending collaboration with R&B powerhouse H.E.R., “Blessed & Free,” and “Good in Bed” from Dua Lipa’s Grammy-winning sophomore album Future Nostalgia. Their palette expands from there: alt-rock anthem “Hero” by Weezer, “High,” a heartfelt ballad by Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, James Blake’s gorgeous single “Life Is Not The Same,” AJ Tracey and Mabel’s UK hit “West 10,” and nearly half of Kid Cudi’s long-anticipated album Man on the Moon III: The Chosen, Daytrip have left their mark on nearly every genre. Outside of the US, collaborators include Colombian rapper Feid, who was nominated for a Latin Grammy for his album 19, and international stars like Flohio, Santi, and NSG. 
In 2020, Daytrip earned their first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 with the gothic Cudi and Travis Scott collaboration “THE SCOTTS,” setting the stage for a prolific 2021. David and Denzel executive produced multi-platinum star Lil Nas X’s debut album, MONTERO, garnering the duo’s second and third Billboard No. 1s singles with “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” and “INDUSTRY BABY (feat. Jack Harlow).”  The album’s success is a reminder that Take A Daytrip can’t be boxed in. Moving seamlessly across styles and genres to achieve their career-long mission of creating freely and making music that connects with listeners worldwide.
