Delarue aims to make it big | Entertainment
Music has been a part of dancehall artiste Delarue’s life for as long as he can remember.
Since he started pursuing the art professionally five years ago, he has not slowed down. “I officially started music around 2016 but I have been doing music for most of my life. I got involved in music because I couldn’t escape from it; even when I gave up on music, it found me again,” he said.
With a unique sound that accompanies personal lyrics, the artiste creates music that listeners can relate to as well.
“The inspiration behind my music comes from school days. My friends and I used to knock on benches then we started using a programme called Cool Edit. We’d write songs about everyday life and that’s really what my music is about, society impacts most of my writing,” he explained.
With a growing catalogue of music, some of his past releases include Unwanted Child and Bob The Builder. One of his popular videos is a remix of Skillibeng’s Brik Pan Brik,which has garnered much attention on his YouTube channel.
“As a producer, it’s always about getting the right sound on a song, that clean sound. So even if it’s played 10 years later, it still sounds as if it’s newly recorded,” said Delarue.
There is new music in the pipeline for him, starting with an EP to be produced by Kadoo Williams Music Group. He also has more music videos to be released soon.
“My hopes for the new music that’s coming is to get more recognition and airplay, maybe have some vloggers talk about it to get that boost,” he stated.
