Dash Speaks' Ep 'The Importance Of Getting Up' Out Now

"His beats are unreal, he's a great rapper. and he is one of my favorite DJs.  Dash is just crazy talented" - Heems of Das Racist

Dash Speaks is a DJ, producer, and rapper born and raised in New York City. His music and DJ sets reimagine and reinterpret hip hop, borrowing elements from all kinds of other genres, but ultimately celebrating the music on which he was raised and with which he fell in love.

Speaks has been making music and rapping since he was 14.  While other kids we're taking their musical cues from MTV and Z100, a young Dash Speaks was listening to music ranging from Outkast to James Brown to Portishead to Bob Dylan.

Dash's production credits include work with Das Racist, Moguai (Mau5trap), Danny Brown (Fool's Gold), Despot (Def Jux),  K. Flay (RCA) and Lakutis, among others.  His work has been showcased as one of Pitchfork's Best New Tracks, in New York Magazine's list of the ten best uncleared songs in Hip Hop, in Refinery 29's This is Our Jam Section, and featured by The Village Voice, Life and Times, DJ Booth, Details Magazine, and The Seattle Times.

Dash has shared the stage with artists such as Lupe Fiasco, ?uestlove, Mike Posner, Talib Kweli, Theophilous London, Das Racist, Childish Gambino, and Kid Cudi at events such as Camp Bisco, CMJ, The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, and Governors Ball.  As a successful club DJ Speaks has played at over sixty venues while holding residencies at venues such as the Blind Barber, Ella, Soho House, 675 Bar, Le Poisson Rouge, The W Hotel, and The Mandarin Oriental. 

The last of Dash's several solo albums was an instrumental EP entitled "The Importance of Getting Up (Mishka / Greedhead)" released in April of 2013.  Forbes Magazine described TIOGU as "an ellipses that plays up the breathy sensuality, forlorn melancholy, and lively, upbeat pulse of Speaks lush beats."   adding that, "Speaks is adept at fusing these disparate sounds into a cohesive whole."  Currently Dash Speaks is finishing "Don Speaks" a collaborative EP with rapper Donwill of Tanya Morgan.
