OFFICIALLY SIGNED TO BLDBLK RECORDS!!!

 DLRN​ is the first official act signed to Bldblk Records!

BLDBLK is an independent record label, an imprint of Artery Recordings and a part of the larger Sony music family, focusing on up-and-coming artists and “genre-bending unicorns”.

So….I guess that makes us unicorns…like Kofi, Big-E and Xavier Woods. In other words its a #NewDay

We are so grateful to be a part of the Sony/Artery/BLDBLK family!

Shout out to Justin Nordan​ and the BLDBLK family for believing in the vision. Shout out to our team who makes a lot of this possible. Shout out to our fans…well for not unfollowing us. lol

New music coming soon. #DLRN

Too Much Good Stuff

We are loving this summer, and the show coming up on July 14th is no exception.

Jon Reyes is going to be behind the decks as The Philharmonik, Trophii and Joyzu open up for rising star R.LUM.R as he rocks the stage at the Concerts in the Park summer series.  Most known for his hit song Frustrated, R.LUM.R has racked millions of plays on Spotify in a short time, and is making waves with audiences around the world.

Plus, we cannot say just yet, but we would love to see yall out. We are going to be celebrating some amazing news in the DLRN camp, and there is no better to place to live it up then vibing with almost 10 thousand people.

 

Concerts in the Park takes place every Friday through the end of July.

Late & Bake

If you live in the beautiful state of California, then you are already very aware that marijuana is legal. With a far more relaxed approach to cannabis consumption, there are a bunch of shows that are cropping up, all with Mary Jane as their main theme.

June 22nd DLRN x PRVLGS were able to partake in a new experience as the featured musical guest on The Latest Show.

Hosted by local comedians Shehera Hyatt and Michael Cella, and taking place once a month live-and-direct at The Red Museum, this months theme was all reefer related. Featured guests were comedic chronniseur Ngaio Bealum, and local marijuana activist Sheldon Orviss. Not to mention we cured the munchies with local business Donut Madness.

CIP Pop Up

Not so throooooowback

Concerts in the Park is always one of the livest shows in Sac. For a few months out of the year we get to go and partake in a free concert, cold beer, and hot ass sun.

We were blessed enough to perform at CIP in 2015 with Blackalicious. Knowing that we were going to be in front of a big ass crowd,  it seemed only right that we wanted to be able to bring the fam with us. When we performed, a young Soosh!E, of Hot 1035 fame, jumped on the mic with us to show Sacramento a little of what he had to offer.  The sun was beaming, the crowd was pumped, and fuck it — so were we. Rocking the hometown crowd like that.. was a beautiful trip.

It was not too long after that we found out that show had broken the 24 year CIP attendance record. It’s still pretty fucking crazy to be able to consider ourselves a part of that moment .

Throooooowback.

——————-

Cut to two years later, and it was Soosh’s turn. On June 9th, Soosh opened for Del the Funky Homosapien, and on that night, Soosh brought Sean up for a quick song. Just like two years earlier, being up there with the fam just felt right, ya know?

Turns out that night broke our attendance record….

Not so throooooowback

……. Challenge accepted.

 

 

First Festival x DLRN x PRVLGS for the win

Them lights be shining

So we had the privilege (ha!) of playing a locally based music festival called First Fest here in Sacramento.

Currently in its third year, First Fest is built on the ethos of being a platform for local creatives to come together and enjoy each other. All walks of life, from music, comedy, art, food

Gotta hit that stripper clap

and local businesses were able to spend two days on the river, watching the sunset behind the stages as bands from all genres got us hyped up for the start of summer.

Hell, we even got the chance to check out bands we had never been able to see live. We were blown away by some of the talent we have here in this city.

It’s a great thing seeing this city keep building and growing, to see so many different avenues for our artists to perform in. We can’t wait to see this shit get bigger.

… next year we are crossing our fingers for the Deftones to pop up on the lineup.

 

Take a minute to check out First Fest here in Sacramento, the link is below. They are doing some great things here in Sacramento.

Mixing and Mastering.

Mixing and mastering is a fkn process.

Two or three sessions AT LEAST, go into making your project sound like it wasn’t made on your 9 year old’s Casio and an iPhone voice app. (Yes, some people’s music sounds like that, don’t give me the side eye!) Each session is a couple hours long, and consists of you sitting on varied chairs, while the engineers twist knobs and fiddle with dials.

Not to mention you end up hearing your song over and over and over again.

People always wonder why folks bring… five or six people to the studio with them? It’s because we are trying to not hear our own voices in surround sound for 120 minutes on a loop.

So if you have a homies, a lover, a friend — that asks you to go with them to the studio… and you actually go??

You the real MVP.

*slow clap*

Summer ’16

Damn it’s summer already. When did that even happen?

One of the best things about summers in Sac, is the long nights. The sky stays lit for what feels like hours with all the hues of that perfect Cali sunset that you always hear folks talking about. With longer nights, comes tons of amazing events.

We decided to kick off our summer by playing with the fam PRVLGS, as we celebrate the new release of Ko & Eli’s new EP. We consider ourselves blessed to share the stage with such and talent, and we can’t think of a better place than Harlow’s nightclub to make it happen. The mood is always chill, the vibe is always right, and that patio is always perfect on a summer night.

So come out and toast with us.
