Out September 4th, Invincible (By Day), demonstrates Dozenz‘s ability to instil different emotions through his music. An undeniably epic and expansive tropical club anthem.
An undeniably epic and expansive tropical club anthem. The track was written and recorded in the UAE; the track explores the thoughts and feelings of those who live there. Surrounded by conflict and destruction, the UAE and those who call it home live life to the fullest. Invincible (By Day), is about this feeling of defiance/ignorance.
Completely aware of everything around them, with wolves at their doorstep, the UAE continues to dance regardless.
A voice can be heard at the end questioning “We are Invincible?“. A sober realisation, that as the day dawns, they will have to face up to the truth around them eventually. The track communicates a melancholic happy vibe, a complex emotion of both happiness and sadness.
Abu Dhabi based producer/songwriter Saleh “Dozenz” Hamed’s music takes influences from all over. From producers like Teddy Riley (Michael Jackson, Blackstreet) and Brian Eno (U2. Coldplay) to Kanye West, Calvin Harris, Mark Ronson, Max Martin, Nigel Godrich (Radiohead), Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys) and Berry Gordy.
From MC to alt-rocker, as a kid, the songwriter & producer, Saleh spent hours in the car with his mother during long commutes back and forth to school. She would play the radio, talk about what she liked and why, in essence, teaching him the basic ins and outs of music—and he was listening. By his estimation, it was these very drives which would inspire and perpetuate his love for music.
Living on three different continents has resulted in multicultural sonic saturation; in hindsight, it seems almost inevitable: the creation of his music brand, Dozenz, a moniker which sees him searching both locally and abroad for talented collaborators with which he is continual: writing, recording, releasing, repeat.
