Fusing electronic rap vocals and guitar beats, Dampszn's one to watch.
In the ever-evolving music industry, finding your own unique voice can be a herculean task. One artist who has managed to do so is Dampszn, a rapper, singer, and songwriter from Long Island, New York. Despite facing challenges and working tirelessly to balance his personal interests and professional life, he has developed an innovative fusion of electronic rap vocals and guitar beats that sets him apart in the crowded world of music.
Dampszn first burst onto the underground music scene in 2018, but it wasn’t until his songs “Hydroplane” and “Cancelled” garnered attention between 2019 and 2020 that his popularity skyrocketed. At the young age of 22, he has already amassed millions of streams worldwide. His distinctive sound, characterized by synthetic vocals over acoustic guitar beats, has captured the hearts of fans around the world. Drawing inspiration from pop-infused hip-hop artists like Iann Dior, 24k Goldn, and The Kid LAROI, Dampszn continues to gain followers by connecting with people through his music.
Growing up on Long Island, he fell in love with hip-hop at the age of 11. His passion for music continued to grow, and by the time he was 17, he had recorded his first song. Despite some initial scepticism from his peers, he persevered, and eventually, his hard work paid off. In 2019, his song “Hydroplane” was featured on the YouTube channel “Rap Nation,” which catapulted his career forward.
Dampszn’s journey has been one of self-discovery, experimentation, and determination. He grew up without a local music scene to nurture his talent, so he turned to social media to connect with other artists and find inspiration. His love for hip-hop music led him to develop his unique sound, combining electronic rap vocals with guitar beats. Although some may not appreciate his use of autotune, he believes it has become a crucial part of his brand, contributing to his distinct sound alongside his cadence and lyrical prowess.
Now, with over 6 million streams across all platforms and more than 600,000 listeners on Spotify, Dampszn is making a name for himself in the music industry. His biggest accomplishment to date is hitting one million streams on his song “Cancelled” and amassing over 1.5 million streams on his debut album, “Vielle Ame.”
As Dampszn continues to work on his craft, he emphasizes the importance of patience and consistency. He knows that success in the music industry doesn’t happen overnight and advises aspiring artists to keep going and stay true to their passion. Dampszn is also a digital marketing coordinator, working with clients both in and out of the hip-hop industry, proving that it is possible to have a successful career while pursuing your creative passions.
Looking to the future, Dampszn envisions himself rising through the ranks of the music industry, either performing his music across the country or continuing to work with big-name artists in the music marketing field. With his unwavering drive and passion, it’s evident that Dampszn is a force to be reckoned with in the world of music.
