DarioDMusic was born in Trinidad and Tobago and moved to Toronto, Canada when he was 12 years old. Always a lover of music, DarioDMusic started writing music when he was 13. Currently working on his debut album “Real Talk”, DarioDMusic is trying to be as versatile with his music as possible. His music styles range from R&B, Hip Hop, POP, reggae, dancehall, soul, gospel. He believes that words have power and as an artist, he’s mindful of what he puts out there for the world to repeat. His goal with his music is to have people speak real-life while bringing good vibes. While there’s a definite edge of contemporary rap styles and sounds in “Disrespectful”, DarioDMusic utilizes this to gain an audience’s interest. The music helps create a level of individuality that you start to recognize as being the calling card of this artist.
“Disrespectful” has a smooth, subtle manner in which the whole thing pours through.

The verses throughout “Disrespectful” feel familiar and accessible, DarioDMusic makes sure to spit rhymes and ideas precisely and naturally. His flow varies just enough so throughout the performance to let you know there’s skill and purpose behind it all, and that works well as he furthers the familiarity of his sound and his name.

Welcome to BuzzMusic! Can you tell us more about yourself? How did you decide you wanted to pursue music?
Well I’ll say I was first inspired to do music by watching my dad, he was a singer and he sang for Trinidad carnivals and he traveled doing music. So just watching him and being at some of his shows made me want to pursue music. But I wrote my first song at the age of 13 and started recording when I was 15.. and the first time I heard myself on a record in the studio I cried. I couldn’t believe it was me and from that day on I knew I wanted to do music for the rest of my life.
We love your track “Disrespectful”! What was the writing process like for this song?
Well my writing process not only for this song but for all my songs are pretty much the same, I always pray first cuz I believe God knows where everybody’s at, so he’ll give me the right words, secondly I never write anything down it’s always a freestyle over a beat and I just mumble out words until I find a catchy chorus. I believe the chorus is the foundation of the song so once I get that and I know what I want to talk about I start mumbling words out until the best ones come. And that’s pretty much how my process goes.
“Disrespectful” has a strong lyrical presence. Can you dive into more detail on this?
This song comes from me reading in the Bible and it says in James 3v10 “Out of the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. These things, my brothers, should not be this way [for we have a moral obligation to speak in a manner that reflects our fear of God and profound respect for His precepts. So I took that and made a relatable story, so the songs describing a girl who’s pretty and she thinks her looks would make up for her bad attitude, so she doesn’t care how she treats people. The song is meant to be a conversation between the guy and the girl that’s why it started with a phone convo. So in the song the guys pretty much telling her what nobody around her wants to tell her. Hence that’s why the first words were “ You need somebody to put u in your place, need somebody that will tell u bout your ways” She’s also looking for love and wants the best in terms of a husband, but yet she doesn’t want to be her best by recognizing her wrongs and changing her attitude.
What do you hope your listeners take away from your music?
I pray listeners first like the songs but be changed by the messages... I feel often we hear people say “ oh this my favorite song” but yet they don’t know the lyrics.. and if u don’t know the lyrics the song could never bring change cuz u missed the message cuz u fell in love with the flow but lost the words. So the key for me is for them to first like the songs but also be impacted by the words/ message.
Does your songwriting always include real-life experiences? Or is some of it fiction?
Most of my songs came from experience but some of them are fiction for me but it’s a reality for somebody out there, cuz even tho I may not have been through some of the things my music is talking about, I have conversations with people who have and that conversation inspired and birthed the song.
