Dnte explains himself – indieberlin nods enthusiastically


indieberlin talks to Dnte – Hungarian Berlin-based producer of seriously good sounds 

indieberlin: How would you explain your music to a deaf person?

Dnte: Compositions of wonky grooves and enchanting melodies. A mixture of different styles that results in a cinematic sound and surreal atmospheric textures.

 indieberlinWhat questions are you most often asked in interviews?

Dnte: What is your working method. What kind of stuff do you use to make music.

 indieberlinWith which other artists would you like to go on tour or to play together with?

Dnte: It would be great to go on tour with Bonobo or play with Tokimonsta, Daedelus, Nosaj Thing. 

 indieberlinAre there differences between audiences in Germany and those in, say, Hungary?

Dnte: I think we can find differences,  not the same nationality, place and taste.Every different nationality has tis own taste in music.

indieberlinHow do you come up with your music ideas?

Dnte: The things that inspire me are for examle how the birds fly, or how the river ripples. Sometimes I watch how people walk in different tempo, it gives me inspiration for rhytjms. You know, the inspiration just comes from everywhere.

indieberlinWhich band or artist would you like to interview if you could?

Dnte: Nosaj Thing

indieberlinWhat is music to you?

Dnte: 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 can do what other languages can’t.

indieberlinTell us something about your new release and when we can see you play live?

Dnte: I’m glad to inform you that my first videoclip: ‘Could We Dance’ is online
