Check now the exclusive interview with Dnte on www.cascaderecords.fr
CR - Where are you from?
Dnte - I come from Hungary, and I live in Berlin.
CR - Tell us a little about how you got started making beats?
Dnte - In the beginning I wrote lyrics and then I started to write hip hop beats, because I couldn’t find any music that totally fulfilled my taste.
I extended my knowledge about it and I started to learn classical music on piano too. I fell in love with hip hop. I was impressed by sampling techniques, the world of the sampling, deep bass and groovy rhytm.
Some years after I started to focus on instrumental music.
CR -Can you describe your musical style and inspirations?
Dnte - I find it very hard to answer this question because of the labels that people usually use to describe music .
Let’s see -> (hard groove rhytm + classic instrumentation + sampling + synthetic sounds + surreal atmosphere )*on my own way = my musical style.
The inspiration just comes from everywhere. The moment, the silence, spirituality, car traffic, sounds of nature are inspire me to make music.The important point in this case is how openminded we are.
CR - Favorite piece of gear?
Dnte - My hands :)
CR - Can you describe your mix for CR?
Dnte - I mixed songs which are favourites nowadays.
CR - Favorite(s) Album,EP,track or musical moment in 2012?
Dnte - I have a lot, so only some :
CR - What are your future new projects?
Dnte - Im doing some collabs at the moment with some other artists, remixes and also working on my stuff.
My next step is a physical release on Mad-Hop.
CR - Your favorite food and drink?
Dnte - food: Vadas
CR - Specials shouts?
Dnte - thank you to all who hate and who love me.

Let’s see this review about my Mystic EP
Dnte wonky hiphop + kelekótya szintik + melankolikus vonósok képlettel leírható bemutatkozó,ingyenes ep-jét szerettük. A klip után készült, innen letölthető Mystic ep ugyanezt a vonalat folytatja, apróbb változtatásokkal: egy kicsit “slágeresebb” lett, vagy legalábbis a korábbinál nagyobb hangsúlyt fektet a bólogatásra és az újabb hallgatásoknál örömmel felismerhető motívumokra. A két szám közül a címadóban nincsenek vonósok, csak egy feldarabolt, szép ének; a másodikban igen, illetve abban még aprólékosabban kidolgozott a különféle összetevők összjátéka, felelgetése. (RA)
I gave a short interview , here we go
1st question : What is your background and your next projects ?
I started with lyrics writing and then I realized music is the perfect language for me to explain my feelings and thoughts. I was enchanted by the colorful depth of the language that music transfers. Music could do what other languages can’t. I also learnt playing the piano and music theory as well.
I will have some new releases soon, like one song on Cascade Records and Resistant Mindz “Closed Expansion” double vinyl on the 4th of June. The Mono Massive – Staletights feat. Mosch ( Dnte remix ) will be available for free download at the end of May or beginning of June by Duzzdownsan Records and recently I have finished a song for Saturaterecords.
Of course I’m working on my new Dnte release too, these 2 songs will be released on 7″ Vynil.
2nd question : What kind of stuff do you use to make music ?
I use a lot of tools, but usually i work with PC+midi+instruments.
3rd question : What is your working method ?
I can’t name an exact working method. At first usually I have a strong rhythm or melody, bassline and I build up my music around these sections. I try to keep the feelings of the moment, and create those in the music according to my point of view.
4th question : What is the best song ever for you ?
It’s hard to say which is the best song ever for me . But i can say John Lennon – Love
This song is so simple and so powerful. And the lyrics…is perfect.
5th question : Do you like lemonade ?
Of course with double ice
