BEIRUT, LEBANON – A new duo from the Middle East is bringing an intriguingly dark new sound to the world stage of music with an exploration of multiple genres fused into one. Dark Note – made up of friends Saiid Zeidan and Anthony Nemnoum from Beirut, Lebanon – represents cutting edge music with sounds that range from EDM, Trap/ Future Bass, Techno, Hip Hop, Pop or even Rock.
Dark Note - named after their discovery of finding light in the dark - takes inspiration from ideas that seemingly pop up out of nowhere during times of introspection.
“When you’re in the dark and hear a cool voice in your head and you start thinking about how you could make that into a song, that’s what Dark Note represents,” Zeidan said. “There is no one who can make the same music we are making. We can do EDM,Trap/ Future Bass, Techno, Hip Hop, Pop or even Rock … all genres you might think of.
And when we bring that to a crowd, the crowd will go crazy and dance like never before. We will be known for our massive raves. We won’t stop until we’ve reached the biggest stages of TomorrowLand, UMF, EDC, Ibiza and many more.”
Their journeys in music started separately. Zeidan started DJ-ing when he was 16 and was discovering his path in music production, while Nemnoum started exploring production and instruments at age 15. They eventually came together while studying mixing and mastering at a music academy in Beirut.
They clicked almost immediately and discovered that the sounds and styles they were independently interested in sounded even better when brought together. The fusion of their two styles grew into a one-of-a-kind sound unlike anything in Lebanon … or anywhere else in the world!
After six months of hard work in the studio and sampling new music to live crowds during DJ sessions, Dark Note is ready to release their sound to the world through their new album “IMPACT.”
According to Nemnoum, it’s a project that shows you a sneak peak of their skill through a diverse range of sounds – with one Pop song, a lot of Trap, and some heavy EDM along the way.
“It’s our first album and with it, we want to make a big impact,” Nemnoum said. “We have four tracks right off the bat that we think might make a hit.”
Those four tracks include “Demise” – an EDM/Trap fusion about breaking into someone’s dreams; “IMPACT” – another Trap song that is tailor-made for making a big impact on the club scene, like a “meteoroid striking land” ; “Star Crossed Lovers” – a slower-paced love song that touches on religion and traditions underneath a catchy hook that listeners will have a hard time shaking out of their heads; and “Trust In Me” – a commercial-ready Radio/DJ friendly Pop song hit that will make you dance and shake that ass.
The album is out now and distributed under EDM REKORDS LTD. They aim to provide the best music experience possible, shaking the ground by using their marvelous 808 drums and original sound designs. They currently have three other artists on the label and are excited for what the future might hold for them on the international stage.
