Guitar nostalgia and trap beats aren’t a combination that you would usually think of together, but in IDWD by Brooklyn based Dutchboy, he’s found a way to blend two totally different styles with ease. A laid back single, the American showcases his versatility with his vocal range and the tuned effect fits perfectly with the tone of the track.
Reminiscent of the 90s grunge rock guitar lines that have also been brought to prevalence in today’s world, with a careful nod to Day Wave, Dutchboy delivers a highly potent hip-hop track, with a deeply personal message. Further exemplifying his abilities by taking a totally different direction with this track, IDWD is short and sweet and leaves you wanting more.
Dutchboy speaks about IDWD: “The song encapsulates anxiety ~ a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. I don’t want to depart this life before my chance of being accepted or loved, whether that be a love interest, my family or the masses.“
