During the interview for his Mixmag Cover last year, Denzel shared that he was a fan of drum ‘n’ bass, curating a d’n’b-heavy Cover Playlist. “I really love d’n’b,” he said. “So I wanted to do a mix of old and new.”
Fans were clearly excited about the possibility of a move to electronic, with one fan replying “Bruh i’d die if you make this happen.”
Another supporter wrote “Need a @denzelcurry jungle project”, while a third begged him to “stop f`*cking around and drop that new genre already”.
A few rap stars have begun dabbling in the electronic music scene; Drake has regularly begun to incorporate smooth, groove worthy house music elements into his work, a precedent beginning with the tech-house dance album ‘Honestly, Nevermind’ in June 2022.
Megan Thee Stallions sophomore album, ‘Traumazine’ also incorporated house music production from Chicago-born music producer/DJ Whethnan and Dwilly. The track ‘HER’ particularly stands out as an innovative “hip-house” track.
