NEW MUSIC | DANTE RAPPER COMES THROUGH WITH NEW SINGLE “600 HORSES”

DANTE

NYC-based hip-hop artist Dante Rap­per is one of the genre’s most dar­ing thinkers, a cre­at­ive vis­ion­ary with an authen­tic­ally artist­ic approach.

After issu­ing a series of crit­ic­ally acclaimed singles and per­form­ing a sold-out show at London’s Scala, he’s ready­ing his latest track for release in July 2019.

“600 Horses” opens with a bang: a hazy, trap-lean­ing chor­us built out of wall- shak­ing 808s, skit­ter­ing hi-hats and spaced-out key­boards cre­ates a moody back­drop for Dante’s pitch-shif­ted refrain: “My ***** is fine but my whip is gor­geous, switch­ing lanes, 600 horses.” As the track winds down, a vocal sample is expertly brought in to the mix, end­ing this gritty hip-hop burn­er on an emo­tion­al note.

“My music is about the abil­ity to get under the skin of a feel­ing, a thought or a moment and express it in ways that you can’t oth­er­wise. Being able to do that is a priv­ilege.”

Basing his insight­ful lyr­i­cism on the theme of oppos­ites and jux­ta­pos­i­tion, Dante Rap­per mas­ter­fully con­trasts the con­cepts of main­stream and under­ground, real­ity and fantasy, con­fid­ence and vul­ner­ab­il­ity. Tak­ing things to a far deep­er level than typ­ic­al club-rap.

Dante dis­guises an insight­ful mes­sage in the frame­work of access­ible hip-hop, remark­ing that: “I could hear it in a club or at a house party, but I was able to talk about some­thing real to me in a cryptic and hid­den way.”, “600 Horses” fur­ther estab­lishes Dante Rap­per as one of hip-hop’s most unique tal­ents, an indi­vidu­al­ist with a bold and uncom­prom­ising vis­ion.

This vis­ion is rein­forced in the music video for “600 Horses” which fol­lows on the song’s theme of jux­ta­pos­i­tion in a thought-pro­vok­ing and shock­ing way, bring­ing Dante’s cre­ativ­ity and dark ima­gin­a­tion to the fore­front. Dante wro­te and co-dir­ec­ted the video along­side Arya Ardavan, show­ing the world he is more than just a rap­per, but someone with cut­ting-edge artist­ic vis­ion, leav­ing audi­ences intrigued for what’s to come.
