Huntington Beach, CA artist Denm explores the seedier side of So Cal beach culture on late summer jam ‘Blow It Up’

Huntington Beach, CA artist Denm explores the seedier side of So Cal beach culture on late summer jam ‘Blow It Up’

On the new single and upcoming EP, Huntington Beach, CA artist Denm teamed up with production songwriting team Rock Mafia (Eminem, Marshmello, Diplo, Zedd, Miley Cyrus, Wyclef Jean, Green Day).

The ‘Endless Summer’ EP will be released via Rock Mafia on September 6. This summer Denm has been keeping busy, most recently performing at Moonrise Festival in Baltimore, MD alongside Blackbear, ZHU, Infected Mushroom and others.

Denm says: “I wrote ‘Blow It Up’ initially about my neighbors when I was living in the seedy beach town of Isla Vista. They were loud and wild. Always partying and fighting. I got punched in the face by one of them actually trying to break up a fight in the street midday on a Saturday haha. Classic vibes. They were good dudes though. Somehow there was always broken glass and syringes outside my house. Livin’ in a slum beach paradise what more can you expect? So I was trying to write the song in the first person from their point of view. But as I continued writing the song, it began to sound a lot more like the way I grew up in San Diego as well. Cuz that’s who we were – rowdy and violent kids just trynna get wild and have fun. Surfing and skating and always finding trouble. Or trouble always finding us haha. So it’s kind of a song written about life in Southern California. The seedier side. It’s not all Beverly Hills and Malibu. It’s tough and you gotta learn to be tough to make it. But it’s also a party and good time. There’s no place like it.”

About DENM:

In 2015, Denm was no more than a bedroom producer playing in a band, touring North America, and producing some songs on the side in his spare time.
