Damez is a R&B artist that blends new age hip hop into his sound. Hailing from Johannesburg, born in Vryheid and raised in Boksburg, Damez approach to music is “for the fans by the fans approach” with strong love lyrics and cool laid back hip hop.
Damez plays to the hearts of the listener with constant mixture of cool laid back meaningful rap lyrics, also going deep into the struggles of life and love. His goal as a musician is for others to release their pain and hurt through his music, as well as celebrate in times of joy and glory.
Recently Damez dropped his 8-track mixtape, “Shades Of Grey”. Here he embraces and capitalizes on what makes him a likable rapper and stand out from the rest: emotion. Damez the singer, who also raps at a comfortable pace, is at a place where he’s most comfortable, for the purpose of pleasing his fans and gaining self-improvement.
Each song on the mixtape is a lucid story on its own, in which Damez reveals more of himself, from who he was once to who he’s becoming. The storytelling is filled with flashbacks, acceptance of wrongdoing and unshakeable pride in live and love.
While Damez does spit and sing of love and loneliness, compelling listeners to attend to their own emotions, he also delivers his confidence through braggadocio rhymes. But like most R&B singers, where Damez sounds more at home is on the tracks that are focused on his emotional tribulations, a subject that he happily, and often interestingly, discusses at length.
“Shades Of Grey” is filled with beats that are a joy to listen to and Damez often has worthwhile things to contribute. Combined with the consistency of the production, the amorphous song structure helps make the mixtape feel all of one piece.
Damez is at his best when he goes soft. Some of the album’s highlights include the gorgeous “Tie You Up”, “What You Gonna Do”, “Tonight” and the funky “Have Me Fun”. Damez is a true double-treat, as he puts his rapping and singing skills on full display here.
“Shades Of Grey” is great introspective mixtape with a melodic design of new age hip hop. It gives off a great vibe for modern hip hop with a flare of soul. Most songs on this mixtape reference relationships and that’s fine. It’s good to hear an artist break from the monotonous Dance music.
So to resume it, if you like the blend of new age Hiphop and R&B check out Damez!
