With a cool 80 Million streams across his discography and placements in Spotify's New Music Friday, Jazz Vibes, and Lo-Fi Beats, DLJ is a decorated creator with a progressive take on contemporary minimalist music. “Dead Man” is a narcotic, stark, and shadowy single that explores the unwelcome symptoms of the human experience. Combining the musical elements of electronic, indie, and hip-hop, “Dead Man” is a place where poetry and pain collide. Its stripped-back nature is hypnotizing, allowing the powerful lyrical content to reign high above the beautifully simplistic production. This collaborative gem comes at a time in modern history where pain and heartbreak are all too familiar. A powerful and authentic manifesto, “Dead Man” is a gift stitched together by the hands of empathy and vulnerability.
“To me, ‘Dead Man' is a track that reflects the irrational insecurities and pessimism so many of us feel, but don't express. These feelings and worries are oftentimes overcome, but I still think they're important to capture.” – Galvanic
