Dani Deahls name is back flowing out of our mouths again and we are not the only ones. We mentioned her not too long ago on her new releases but that is not the only thing catching everyone’s attention! As she continues to dominate Chicago‘s trap scene more and more people are beginning to question her role and stand point in the music industry as a female artist. Being a stand up gal, she has the answers.
Through multiple interviews with various publications, the DJ List MTV, Digital DJ Pool & More, Dani has been spreading awareness of gender inequality in the music industry. But she is not just talking about it, she is actively playing a role in a community working together to solve this problem. Being a successful electronic music producer and DJ with a ton of connections and female figures in her own pool of musically talented friends she has the means to do just this.
What is seemingly a funny inside joke among friends at first glance has much bigger significance. According to Dani in her own words “The nap pose is just visual cues to let the world know that we identify with a cause.” Started by Liz Garard, who majored in women’s studies in Vanderbuilt, #NapGirls is turning into a phenomenon, a movement bringing women together, sharing advice and opportunities with each other in the music industry so every one has an equal chance at success. Narrowing that gap between men and women having roles contributing to live performing, events, media; any and all positions in the industry.
Furthering the spot light on the cause, Dani was invited to her first public speech appearance to speak on behalf of female music artists about the issues regarding gender inequality on the TEDx platform. Confidently taking charge of the stage, Dani identifies herself as an equalist with a do it yourself attitude. She encourages this mentality in females in any aspect to break free from gender barriers, to make it normal to think they can succeed in anything they set their mind to. Coming from a gender neutral house hold growing up, she never thought about these differences, giving her the confidence to take any opportunity with no hesitation.
Being a perfect role model, she practices what she preaches, taking life into her own hands, not letting these obstacles like sexism trump her ambition. Independently with the help of a crew and no agency she embarked on a tour named after her single Show Me Your Kitties or SMYK. By herself she garnered the support from artists like Diplo, Tiesto, MAKJ, Velentino Khan to name a few. Her most recent trap anthem goes by the name of Cha Ching, premiering on Trap Style as a free download it has already gotten the support of HeroBust, GoshFather & JINCO. A tune filled with heavy percussion and horns flavored with rhythmic sounds its no wonder shes on top of her game.
Just reaching their 50,000th Youtube subscribers, Twerk Nation had released a Best Of Twerk Music Volume. They reached out to Mrs. Deahl to be the first to start out the series. Thirty minutes of the best 100 bpm has to offer she starts it off with her aforementioned hit Cha Ching. Whether it be for her success and talent in the trap music genre or for her support on gender equality every one is asking for Dani, all of this possible for her by being a dedicated artist. You know if she can do it you can too.
And of course you cannot be a fan without knowing her passion and love for felines. She has had a hand in working with Big Cat Rescue. It is a non profit organization that helps rescue and raise any kind of cats, domestic house cats to lions. So not only does she dominate trap music and work towards gender equality she is saving some paws on the ground too. Dani is truly a force to be reckoned with, putting hard work to any idea she puts forth.
Baauer emerges from the studio to finally release an original track after a hiatus. He has not exactly been away from the studio though. Fetty Wap was granted a beat by the artist and Just recently Tkay Maidza released a hip hop track produced by George Maple, What So Not and Baauer. So you see he is infinitely dappin in music. GoGo is a return to that Baauer trap we all love. Energetic and fast paced with quick hittin high hats snares and claps over a wicker bassline riff and chopped vocals. Looking forward to more new and improved Baauer music which you can catch a preview of with a recent mix release for Triple J containing unreleased music. Hope on his soundcloud linked below and check him out.
Tkay Maidza releases a new track after a short silence following her release of MOB. Paired with an eerie yet creative music video, this project unites some serious talent in music production. Ghost is a future classic trap beat track brought to you by Baauer, What So Not and George Maple. The airy synths, heavy beats and ghostly effects is a raw track and with Tkay’s steadfast vocals, this should satisfy fans for another good season till the cravings kick in.
Hip Hop mic handler Omar Linx hooked up with Hunter Siegel and Pro Logic for production on his lastest release. Back To You, released via Buygore, has an intense yet ambient feel to it. Omar Linx always hits the mic with such passion and energy combined with melody and synths brings you a song you can really dig into.
Linx can Keep It Mellow too on the other hand with a free one released late last month by Marshmello. True to its name it stay real vibrant with a bassline synth and piano dancing with some vocals that bring the track down to earth. Gotta give it to Linx for not being a one styled one genre artists. Always pushing the boundaries as he grow.
Earlier this month Machobeats released The Mid onto his soundcloud. A real heavy and gritty trap instrumental. Get some good speakers and feel this bass in your chest it is ridiculous. Machobeatz is a genius with trap and hip hop music production and is also open to selling his beats to aspiring individual artists or even collaborating over at Ever Evolved Studio.
Wednesday, November 25th Machobeats had the opportunity to open for Curren$ythe Spitta. On the beat pads, Macho controlled the sound and while fellow Ever Evolved studio members Rhymster, Mike Booth and AR of Triangle Offense hit the mic and controlled the energy. Macho entered and without uttering a word let his music speak, hittin the crowd with heavy bass and beat work. Absolute best crowd control of the night. Aside from the $pitta Curren$y of course, it was a great night for local artists too.
Michael Jackson was not too fond of Rock music from what I have heard even though he had Eddie Van Halen on his hit song Beat It for the guitar solo. I wonder what he would have thought of about Hip Hop and Trap music. For Hucci this genre in electronic music is like second nature to him and I would say an excellent candidate to recreate a song by the King of Pop. Choosing one of MJ’s more rebellious lyrics from They Don’t Care About Us, Hucci chops and transposes them up in A Perfect Storm; creating a raw beat and rhythmic pattern around it. Grab the free download and get ready to be impressed.
DC & Hooks back in the scene releasing a monstrosity among the public on a collaboration with LOUDPVCK. Not realizing till their actual work came out, these guys are perfect collab to make a killer track. Both understand what it takes to make a ringing and memorable trap house track to make a dance floor hit. With Zeds Dead history in dubs, they add their style with the trap masters and produce an epic.
And with Zeds Dead collaboration with Megalodon earlier this month, it is a great time to be a dubstep fan. Basically two known heavy hitters of dubstep collaborate and you get what you would expect. Some heavy bass hitting madness. With some Rasta beats and dub wobbles and growls you get a downpour of bass and grime from the double duos. DC & Hooks have been dropping these tracks at their recent sets and you already know, their music is super intoxicating. Keep up with these cats.
