Abstract rap pairs with intriguing melodies on new EP ‘Feel Something’
DALLAS, TX – Dutch from Dallas is an artist who loves to get people hyped. He has sounds and styles made for all types of people all around the world – upbeat and happy music, or vibes for those who are in the dumps and feeling down. By talking about his own lows in life he helps to inspire others, and his diverse musical offerings take people in whatever mood they might find themselves in and move them into a more positive frame of mind.
That diversity is put on full display with his latest EP, “Feel Something,” which is currently available across all streaming platforms. Across six songs, Dutch gives and abstract offering of rap without any big ego.
“It’s just good music,” he said. “I’m showing people what I can do with music and where I’m coming from. People can listen to this project and get a feel of where I’m coming from. I’m a guy who is just doing what I want to do. And whatever mood people might be in or relatable experience, I want to have a song for it.”
The debut single from the project is a song called “Clarity.” A music video for the single was recently released, and like the song is also abstract and psychedelic. It’s a hype song that Dutch said serves as a type of anthem for anyone in the world who needs to give themselves a break and accept forgiveness.
“It’s about freeing myself and forgiving myself and realizing some things about myself and being willing to make changes,” he said. “The video is very abstract and shot here in Dallas. I wanted to bring the city life of Dallas to the forefront. I feel like we have a nice downtown setting, so there are a lot of shots of downtown and of me roaming the streets and subways, rapping and dancing and just being free.”
Dutch said he first started his journey as a full-time musician when he was younger. He first played the drums, and as he got older he and his brother started a garage band with one of their neighbors. They covered early 2000s punk rock bands, and over time his curiosity with music evolved into learning about rap and wanting to learn how to write and rhyme. He began to study artists like Future and Kid Cudi and Pharrell because he loved how bold they came on the track. He dived head-first into perfecting his craft, and over time developed a signature sound and style that is undeniably unique.
“I think what makes me stand out is that I’m able to pop through different genres and I’m diverse with melodies and instrumentals,” he said. “I feel like I can do it all with any type of beat. I write about my highs and lows and the love I have for the sound and rhythm of beats. I think I’ll continue with this music for as long as I can because it helps me deal with highs and lows of my life.”
