Smooth Engaging Different
Tell us a few things about your new work ‘Dandelion Heart’. What is the main idea behind it?
Dandelion Heart was made to see if l could create a musical interpretation of love, fragile, yet perfect, that you can admire while appreciating the delicate yet amazing way its designed, like a dandelion heart. Everything looks perfect in love, but a strong wind of hate can destroy a dandelion heart.
What is the story behind your name?
I was a nightclub sax player for years. They called me Dirty D on stage cause my general attitude of hard drinking and hard parting that our band did. Now its mutated to mean I can make some sax notes so smooth it will make your partner want to do dirty things to you LOL!
The night club scene was crazy, but when Covid hit all our gigs and work dried up so I ended up in the studio making my own stuff.
Do you have an artist that you would describe as a hidden gem that we should know about?
Yes, Dubl A is a bass player I work with and just released a new EP Solar Sail with. His musical literacy is amazing and his Music Theory understanding is unmatched. he will be on all my work now.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?
My biggest challenge is getting my music out to people so they can hear it. Like most artists thats the goal. The issue with my work is that its a blend of genres that we use. We do it because it makes great stuff and sounds great to us. Its not made really to satisfy anyone else. So sometimes its hard to get on playlists because the Genre is kind of undefined.
If you were asked to rescore a film, which one would you choose?
Im not much of a movie guy but I think I would do a great score for an action film of some type. I can get my music to get crazy then drop to sadness all in the same song.
What is the most useless talent you have?
I like this question, thanks for asking it. you can quote me on this.
“There is no such thing as a useless talent, only talent that is used less.”
I have a friend that can pull a string into his nose and out his mouth…….He ended up getting his own TV show on discovery channel called guinea pig because of his seemingly useless talent. talent with no hustle is just talent, but its not useless. You need Hustle to make talent work. Its how hard you want to use your particular talent, whatever it is, that decides how useless it is. I have 45 songs out now and 20 or so appearances on other people work internationally. Im always on the hustle to make more great music.
