Bubbling up from NYC's underground, Dai Burger mixes bourbon with acid. The psychedelic rap diva creates a sexually charged, technicolor soundscape by combining the unapologetic bite of 2000s hip hop with the lightheartedness of '70s Gogo. Her debut nine-track album "Soft Serve" is out now and like the treat, it's a summertime classic.
Dai announced a joint initiative with Brewery Recording Studio called Where My Girls. Named after the album track, the Where My Girls Project will focus on bringing girls ages 12-18 from New York City into the studio. There, they'll learn how music gets made and gain intimate knowledge of how a song goes from an idea or demo to a mastered track. It is driven by Dai's own experience as an up-and-comer, as girls are often overlooked when it comes to the technical aspects of recording. The program seeks to empower these young women with the knowledge and tools to become musicians in their own right. Launching this fall, it will consist of workshops and hands-on sessions with Dai and the Brewery team. It will cover techniques such as stacking vocals, producing backing tracks, and audio mixing. The goal is to plant the seeds of change in the music industry by imparting technical skills to the next generation of rappers, singers, songwriters, producers, and engineers.
