“It’s lazy to always compare artists to artists, but if you like Nicolas Jaar or Nils Frahm then you are gonna fuck with this guy’s delicate orchestrations.“ – Noisey
„dné prefers trapping sounds from real life audio – which can be as simple as moving
boxes or recycling glass and plastic – and mixing them into his tracks. The result is a raw,
unique sound that stands out from other musicians.“ – Wonderland
