This Is A Dame-O Track


Award winning producer and artist Dame-O is has released his next album, “Summers Dream” in 2016. The first two singles, “Real Love” and “All of Me” have both had heavy rotation on several on-line radio stations and blogs including the likes of Spotify, Amazon Music and iTunes. “Real Love” was also featured on Next to Blow Radio out of Miami. 
With a Bachelor's Degree in Entertainment and Media Management, this multi-talented music producer, artist, singer-songwriter, DJ, and entrepreneur has become quite the sought after force in the underground music industry. Not only has he produced music for 100’s of artists, including himself and his group, The BeatStreet Club, he has also created and developed 2 very successful online social networks: An interactive hip hop site, www.beatstreetclub.com and America’s largest online social network for roller skating, www.skatefam.com. 

Along with music, roller skating has always been one of Dame-O’s most adored past times. Thus, it was no surprise when he began producing what is now known as “Chicago Skating Music.” He went on to create 5 of the most innovative musical collages entitled Skate 101 – Skate 105 which has since been adorned in skating rinks and within the stepping community all over the country as well as the Chicago metropolitan area. Dame-O’s work in this industry has earned him a huge buzz as well as recognition in the 2011 issue of Stony Island Magazine as “Chicago’s Next Big Thing.” 
Dame-O’s musical style can be described as a refreshing combination of soulful hip-hop, vintage samples, and R&B which often encompasses playful, fun lyrics with a positive message. As a versatile vocal artist, Dame-O can be heard singing and/or rapping on a track. In 2013, Dame-O received the National Adrenaline Award for Best Producer of a skate track. 
2016 will see the release of several videos in which “Real Love” is slated to be released in June via Vevo and other social platforms.
