My new dub track

Dante Leon

Although​ ​many​ ​see​ ​music​ ​as​ ​a​ ​way​ ​to​ ​escape​ ​the​ ​world​ ​and​ ​reality;​ ​for​ ​Dante​ ​Leon, music​ ​is​ ​actually​ ​the​ ​anchor​ ​which​ ​grounds​ ​him​ ​and​ ​fuels​ ​him​ ​to​ ​explore​ ​the​ ​world​ ​and his​ ​craft​ ​to​ ​even​ ​greater​ ​extents.​ ​From​ ​attending​ ​arts​ ​school​ ​from​ ​the​ ​age​ ​of​ ​8,​ ​as​ ​well as​ ​having​ ​a​ ​recognized​ ​reggae​ ​musician​ ​as​ ​a​ ​father​ ​and​ ​another​ ​as​ ​an​ ​uncle,​ ​music​ ​has always​ ​been​ ​a​ ​central​ ​focal​ ​point​ ​in​ ​Dante’s​ ​life.

While​ ​still​ ​in​ ​high​ ​school​ ​in​ ​Toronto,​ ​Dante​ ​quickly​ ​established​ ​himself​ ​in​ ​the​ ​growing music​ ​scene​ ​that​ ​is​ ​now​ ​generating​ ​some​ ​of​ ​the​ ​top​ ​artists,​ ​producers​ ​and​ ​songwriters in​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​As​ ​with​ ​many​ ​young​ ​artists,​ ​early​ ​fame​ ​can​ ​be​ ​detrimental;​ ​Dante​ ​was​ ​able to​ ​navigate​ ​past​ ​the​ ​potential​ ​pitfalls​ ​and​ ​continue​ ​to​ ​grow​ ​and​ ​expand​ ​his​ ​talents, leading​ ​him​ ​to​ ​eventually​ ​move​ ​to​ ​LA​ ​in​ ​the​ ​summer​ ​of​ ​2013.

Once​ ​in​ ​LA,​ ​Dante​ ​slightly​ ​shifted​ ​focus​ ​and​ ​began​ ​exploring​ ​his​ ​talents​ ​as​ ​a​ ​songwriter and​ ​producer,​ ​with​ ​artists​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Cody​ ​Simpson​ ​and​ ​primarily​ ​with​ ​the​ ​electronic​ ​music duo​ ​DVBBS.​ ​These​ ​relationships​ ​in​ ​turn​ ​opened​ ​many​ ​doors​ ​for​ ​Dante,​ ​including working​ ​with​ ​Justin​ ​Bieber,​ ​Roy​ ​Woods,​ ​Nelly​ ​and​ ​Oliver​ ​Heldens​ ​among​ ​others.​ ​While Dante​ ​continues​ ​to​ ​lend​ ​his​ ​songwriting​ ​and​ ​production​ ​services​ ​to​ ​many​ ​renowned artists,​ ​the​ ​24​ ​year​ ​old​ ​creator​ ​has​ ​simultaneously​ ​been​ ​able​ ​to​ ​master​ ​a​ ​sound​ ​not​ ​yet tamed​ ​by​ ​any​ ​other​ ​young​ ​artists​ ​in​ ​the​ ​industry​ ​today.

His​ ​crossover​ ​approach,​ ​which​ ​pulls​ ​from​ ​his​ ​formal​ ​training​ ​as​ ​a​ ​child​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as reggae,​ ​pop,​ ​hip​ ​hop​ ​and​ ​R&B​ ​genres,​ ​is​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​make​ ​waves​ ​and​ ​turn​ ​heads​ ​in​ ​the industry.​ ​Dante’s​ ​first​ ​single​ ​utilizing​ ​this​ ​new​ ​sound​ ​and​ ​direction;​ ​”Follow​ ​Me,”​ ​was released​ ​on​ ​July​ ​11,​ ​2016​ ​and​ ​featured​ ​on​ ​Ebro​ ​Beats1​ ​by​ ​Apple​ ​Music.​ ​He​ ​has​ ​been following​ ​up​ ​with​ ​targeted​ ​placements​ ​on​ ​radio​ ​such​ ​as​ ​BBC​ ​(UK)​ ​and​ ​CBC​ ​(Canada) along​ ​with​ ​features​ ​on​ ​publications​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Complex,​ ​Noisey,​ ​DJ​ ​Booth,​ ​Revolt,​ ​CBC Music​ ​and​ ​more.
