Artist Spotlight: DyMe-A-DuZiN


Artist Spotlight: DyMe-A-DuZiN

12/16/2012 - 9:59pm

On Tuesday our holiday show in Brooklyn will feature performances by vets like Talib Kweli, Sean Price, Pharoahe Monch, Smif N Wessun and Skyzoo. Those names are familiar to all Duck Down fans but we always like to showcase the young talent especially coming out of NYC, ex.) Joey Bada$$ & Maffew Ragazino at the Duck Down BBQ 2012, Mr. MFN eXquire opening at our SXSW showcase, and DyMe-A-DuZiN's band Phony Ppl opening for Sean Price.

That's why we reached out to up and coming BK emcees Flatbush Zombies and Dymez to open for our Holiday Show. Here's some of Dymez latest music videos in case you're unfamilar. I'll post shit on Flatbush Zombies tomorrow.

Both videos above come off Dymez A Portrait of Donovan mixtape which drops January 9th and has Plain Pat & Emile presenting/producing. If you can't wait till then you can download his previous mixtapes off Datpiff.

Dude is only 20 years old and he already has a deal with Warner Bros. Records! The only thing I don't like about him is how you gotta spell his name every damn time in half capital letters (DyMe-A-DuZiN). At least their are no dollar signs in his name... You can also watch the video that helped put him onto the scene below:

A very talented and versatile artist cause he can rap and sing. But it doesn't follow into the trend of Drake/Kid Cudi type of rapping/singing style, I mean legit soulful singing. A very fresh and unique sound that you can't box into a category. Where he really showcases his singing ability is in his band Phony Ppl. Highly recommend you download their free album, Phonyland. They also recently released a follow up entitled nothinG special you can download on their site. And since it is the holidays listen to their Christmas inspired track below:
