DUM K

For this week’s Villahngar’s MusicInTheAir, we get to Colombia: today it’s the turn of Dum K, DJ and producer born and raised in Medellin, Colombia where he lives.

His sound is characterized by the combination of Afro and melodic rhythms. The musical genres that influence him the most are progressive, afro and deep house. 

He tells: “Today my musical genre is defined by a groove between Afro and melodic rhythms. A few years ago, I was searching for a characteristic sound that would identify me, I went through various musical genres such as: Techno, Tech House, Progressive … and now I will continue for several years with my musical style”. In private, he loves listening to old and classic salsa.

His first meeting with electronic music was at a very young age. “Since my cousin was a lover of that music and always listened to it – he tells. – My musical journey began in 2015, since that year I decided to learn and practice with a lot of discipline, many hours in the home studio in order to take my sound to where it is”.

His referent artists are Eric Prydz, & ME and Steve Angello. “Their music will always fill me with joy”, he says.

Dum K has released originals & remixes on labels such as Abracadabra, Hurry Up Slowly, Go Deeva Records, Sudam Recordings, SwitchLab, BH Records and many more labels, their tracks have been supported and played by the most important DJs in the world: Erick Morillo, Chus, Nic Fanciulli, Roger Sanchez, Blond:ish and many more.

He explains: “My most recent releases are “Immaculate” which came out on Abracadabra, Blondish’s label, “Twilight” on Sumision Records, and a remix I did for some Spanish artists. I’m currently working on a track with an African singer and some releases are coming on Sudam Recordings and BH Records. I have released my music on Abracadabra, Hurry Up Slowly, Go Deeva Records, Subliminal Records, BH Records and many more”.

Dum K is currently one of Beatport’s 100 best-selling Afro-house artists and he is currently part of a record label in my city, the BH Records.

He tells: “Releasing music, playing in various clubs and supporting us so that our music rises and is known”.

During the summer that just ended he had DJ sets in his city and also in others in Colombia. “Everything has been going great in the past few months,” he says.

Regarding his musical projects for the future, he tells: “I always like to be producing new music to be at the forefront, I’m starting to plan a tour in Europe for next summer. My musical plans for the near future are to release a lot of good music on the best record labels, bring my songs to the ears of all people, play my music in clubs and places around the world, transmit good vibes and the best energy”.

Where were you born influenced your approach to music and your musical style? How much and how where you live, where you come from and your background influence your musical style?

In my country, music with Latin and tropical rhythms is heard a lot, that could greatly influence my sounds because they are characterized by having a catchy groove and rhythm, although I always try to have a unique sound that identifies me.

 

What can you tell us about your release with Abracadabra?

My song Immaculate released on this great label I think it’s my most important song so far, it has had too much support from big platforms and the best DJ’s of the genre.

 

And what could you tell us about your release on Go Deeva Records?

The EP that I released on Go Deeva was a great door for what came after, my track “Nativos” ranked number 6 on Beatport in the Top Afro House.

What could you tell us about your release on Hurry Up Slowly?

“Flame” is a song that I love and it was also through this means that I got to sign with Abracadabra, Malone is the owner of Hurry Up Slowly and A&R of Abracadabra.

 

What do you think of the current music scene of the country where you live? What do you think are the differences with Europe?

The music scene in my country is a bit complicated, although they are beginning to value work more, starting out in music is hard work. In contrast to Europe, I think they value work more, even if there is more competition, I think it is more viable to develop a career as an artist there.

 

What evolution do you think electronic music is experiencing on the international scene?

I think that electronic music is going through a wave of Latin rhythms and voices, although the melodic and the Afro are gaining a lot of strength and rising.

 

What can you tell us musically about your Podcast for Villahangar?

I think it’s the best I’ve done so far, I’ve listened to it like 15 times and I love the musical line of this podcast. It includes 2 of my songs, some IDS of colleagues and other songs of my favorite artists.
