Disrupt Exclusive Interview With Dėnz: Behind The Music

Dėnz, born Daniel Saad, is a rising artist from Montreal, Canada. Growing up in the Laval suburb, he was inspired by artists such as J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Joyner Lucas & many more. He emerged into the Montreal hip-hop scene in 2019. We had an opportunity to interview Dėnz and this is what he had to say.

 

1: Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

 

Dėnz- I’m just a young man from the suburbs, been blessed with a “normal” life so I don’t have much I can talk about in real depth regarding where I come from. However, the person that I am today is just a product of growth, pain, and realization.

 

2: Where are you from?

 

Dėnz- From Montreal in Canada but I’m of Egyptian descent.

 

3: How did you get into music?

 

Dėnz- There’s nothing in particular that I could say other than the fact that I started music to find myself in a period of my life where I was lost.

 

4: What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

 

Dėnz- Near-death experiences & some inner demons.

 

5: Are you currently signed or independent?

 

Dėnz- I’m independent, but I have a strong team helping me out!

 

6: Who inspires you the most musically?

 

Dėnz- J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, and Drake, that’s my Rushmore.

 

7: What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

 

Dėnz- “Man, I felt every word… that’s how I feel!”

 

“Wow.”

 

“This guy is from my city! He’s Reppin’ us”

 

I just want to make the people around me proud and inspire others. I want people to use my music as a source of happiness and comfort.

 

8: What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

 

Dėnz- The inspiration I have brought to the few people around me. None of this music stuff is worth it if you do it for YOU only.

 

9: Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?

 

Dėnz- Unfortunately, I don’t (yet), I work with DMAZ who is my sound engineer, Golden Coast, YNG Milly, and Thatkidgoran who are some producers/beatmakers I have worked with

 

10: Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

 

Dėnz- All four I mentioned earlier but mostly Cole. That is my dream.

 

11: Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out? What is it about?

 

Dėnz- There is. New tracks, a project on the way, visuals, and more. I am taking everything so slowly, to be honest, but I am really working hard to finish a couple more tracks before the end of the summer. Having responsibilities, a good 9-5 job and other personal goals/needs is a lot to take in with the music. I’d rather wait for when everything is perfect rather than release music that is mid just out of impatience. I want to release music though and it’s really hard for me to wait but I know it’s the right thing to do.

 

12: What does a day inside your shoes look like?

 

Dėnz- Work from 8:30-4:30, walk my dog, have supper, go to the gym and go back home to either just chill and write some music or going out with some friends to talk. The only stable part of my days is my duties, the rest is not consistent. I’ll have days where I just stay home with my family, write and watch Netflix, and somewhere I go out till late at night. No in-between.

 

13: Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

 

Dėnz- Mhmm, I’ll wait till my music comes out to share more about myself:) My music will say a lot about me.
