Please help me welcome Dannii Scott to the spotlight of Navarre’s Lounge! Dannii Scott is an artist with a focus on lo-fi hip-hop with a soulful vibe. He is a master at blending in a wide range of creative influences and various musical styles, resulting in a very personal sound that is also massively appealing. When I first began writing up this artist, I was not sure what to expect from the description I was giving, but Dannii Scott is not missing the mark when he says he blends many influences and various musical styles.
Dannii Scott is an electronic producer and artist based in Venice Beach, California. With genres spanning lo-fi, downtempo, ambient, psychedelic, house and hip-hop, Dannii Scott’s sound is versatile and eclectic, keeping listeners on their toes. Another unique feature Dannii Scott’s music that you do not see too often is that each song varies greatly from the other, but still have a common theme. Every song has its own personality from start to finish.
Recently, Dannii came out with a brand new studio release titled ‘Saudade’ (a Portuguese term meaning profound nostalgia and emotional longing). It was inspired by a planned indefinite trip to South America, and he ended up falling in love with Brazil. Dannii Scott cites his childhood memories of listening to records played by his parents, who were hippies at heart, as key influences on the project. His influences are not lost within the music either. With this provided information, you can hear the subtle Brazilian hippy influences.
This amazing new EP serves as early promotion for the artist’s upcoming full-length album by the same title, which is going to be released very soon. If you are a fan of Mac Miller, Trippie Redd, and Anderson.Paak, Dannii Scott is most definitely going to be your cup of tea. The EP is performed with passion and focus. The production is also as good as you would expect from any of the top artists in this genre because Dannii goes to great lengths to release the best music that he possibly can. If this is any indication of what to expect next, we are in for a wild ride!
To be honest, the track ‘Cold, Cold World’ is old school and new school to me at the same time! It is wild to explain, but the beat is very matured with many layers of instrumentation, but the vocals have new school influences that vibe strongly with the beat.
Another track I really vibe with is ‘Not to Worry’, which can be found on Dannii Scott’s Spotify page. It has the synths that bring back 80s vibes, but the incredible mesh from the synths along with the beat and Dannii’s vocals makes a track that almost entrances the listener. I can go on and on about Dannii Scott, but you should go ahead and check his music out yourself!
