“Reflections” is a solid piece of Hip-Hop produced by DJ D‑Zine with big kick drums, neck snapping snares, elements of Lo-Fi, a dash of cinematic strings, and a tinkling piano, and all of this held together with a dusty organ and a distorted bass.
DJ D‑Zine is a West London (UK) based music producer and DJ. D‑Zine makes music from, as he puts it “the Hip-Hop side of his brain” piecing together different elements like the days of old skool boom bap but with modern elements and his “good music is good music — no matter the genre” mantra, allows him to make music that he wants to listen to and enjoy that doesn’t have to sound like anyone else.
The final product often has a hint of an array of styles and enhances the image of DJ D‑Zine as an enthusiastic music lover. His earlier work as a solo performer and recording artist with different bands and varying musical genres as a front man, rapper, DJ and turntablist resulted in trips to Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, USA and across Europe, and also performances at Glastonbury, Reading Festival, Roskilde Festival and more. And as a DJ with long standing club residencies, of over 10 years, and a Monday night radio show that has been running for more than 13 years, his enjoyment of music is undeniable.
In 2019 he released the 11 track album, “Building These Beats”, full of melodic, nostalgic Hip-Hop styles. Now in 2020, DJ D‑Zine is set to release his follow up album, “Reflections Of A Mood”, on 10.07.20. Once again this release is set to be a collection of instrumental tracks with an old skool Hip-Hop feel at its core but also a journey through, and a mixing of, Boom Bap, Lo-Fi, R&B and more, with light moments, heavy hitting drums and some moody and cinematic elements.
