Dozenz is a songwriter and producer from the UAE who collaborates with singers all over the globe to bring his music to life. His debut album was the hip-hop/R’nB flavored, After the Storm/ Chasing the Muse, released in 2020. His second album is entitled Daylight and it once again sees him working with some incredible talent, but there are significant stylistic differences. Dozenz hones in on a synth-heavy rock sound, creating a collection of upbeat pop anthems.
Title track, Daylight, is fast-paced and saturated with infectious synthesizer hooks. Vocalist, R, is the perfect fit for the song with his breathy style, and Dozenz applies a nice overdrive to his voice. The line, “It feels so good I can’t stop now / If this ain’t real I can’t come down” mirrors the euphoria of the track perfectly.
Chasing Tigers has a wonderful soulful vibe to it and Dozenz nailed it with his selection of J Fitz as vocalist. His powerful, raspy voice gives the song a real intimacy and Dozenz creates a wonderful soundscape of organ, percussion, and electric guitar.
Song after song is masterfully written and produced. Dozenz is clearly an artist to pay attention to. The singles from Daylight will trickle out over the course of the year, with the full album dropping in 2024.
