Damazein is a rising force in the music industry with an eclectic and authentic sound. Spending his younger years in Jamaica, music shaped his upbringing. A skilled vocalist and lyricist, Damazein’s music treads the line between emo rap, pop, and rock music. His voice has been described as “airy” and “almost angelic,” as Damazein floats through cloud rap, pop, and emo rap inspired instrumentals that blend together hard hitting 808s and bone-chilling piano ballads. You may have already heard of Damazein, as his 2020 single Darkness has had a viral streak, being streamed more than 1.2 million times on Spotify alone.
Damazein isn’t afraid to try new things, with a portion of his catalogue consisting of experimental and existential tracks. His music is introspective, relatable, and most importantly catchy and enjoyable to listen to. Based in the DMV (Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia) area, Damazein’s performances have helped him fill rooms with his digital audience.
On September 19, Damazein released his latest full length album, Oath Breaker. The 17 track album has a 40 minute run time and showcases Damazein’s incredible versatility and artistry. Songs such as the insanely catchy Faith I feel like a mix of the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack, early 2000s emo, and hyperpop perfectly blended together. “All you have to do is believe in me,” Damazein sings on Faith I. The Oath Breaker album is an introspective one that discusses themes including self-doubt, substance abuse, overcoming adversity, love won and lost, and highlights Damazein’s vulnerability.
Damazein is an artist you need to be paying attention. If you’re a fan of pop, rap, emo, hyperpop, and other underground scenes, Damazein is for you. His new project, Oath Breaker, is a must listen that everyone needs to hear. Tune in to Damazein’s music on Spotify or wherever you stream music.
