DeRoyale has mastered the recipe for success, with every component necessary to be instantly thrust among the elite in his craft. Charisma he’s got it, stage presence he’s got it, lyrics he’s got it, hard work ethic he’s got it, that competitive killer instinct he’s got it!
Musical torture in the name of radio play and club bangin’ anthems free of all creativity and soul is what we as true fans of hip-hop/rap have been subjected to in this modern era. Today’s music lacks cultural diversity, originality and passion. It seems the idea of an actual artist has all but been terminated. The constant stream of one-hit wonders and copy-cat performers hijacking the beats and themes of their fellow “artists” leaves the real admirers of goodmusic, and I’m not referring to the record label, finding few if any representatives of this dying art-form. Angelo Rohra aka De Royalestrives to be the voice of a lost generation hoping to find creativity and raw emotion in their ear buds once again. Emerging from a unique background a young artist born in the USA and bred through an exceptional set of circumstances and personal triumphs arrives.
Since the age of 5 his love for music was apparent. While other children his age focused their attentions on everyday life he found himself listening to the sounds of the world around him. A true musician he carries the distinction of being well versed in multiple instruments, including: the piano, bass and electric guitar. He has always had an excellent support system composed of a close knit group of family and friends. Blessed with a loving mother, father and older brothers he values their love above all else. Even with their love and support his life was not without its own struggles.
Light cannot exist without darkness and so life cannot be without both forces. It is through experiencing both that we learn and grow. De Royale’s life is a testament to this very fact. During his darkest moments he found that music could provide mental freedom while in a state of complete isolation. It is during this period that his lifelong bond to music was forged. Music allowed De Royale to express all the things his voice alone could not. Through his unique musical perspective he desires that listeners allow his sounds to unlock the deepest levels of their imagination.
De Royale is combining his love for music with vast cultural experiences by defying the stereotypical sounds heard by today’s artist. With musical influences stemming from the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Australia and Germany he effortlessly blends the diversity of these cultures into the DNA of his music. Sporting an array of popular musical inspiration from the likes of Bob Marley, Bone Thugs and Lil Wayne, De Royale utilizes all of these underlying factors to create his own unique sound. This independent artist’s music can be heard throughout the United States, representing club goers who are seeking a new genre of music that represents the individuality and multifaceted textures and tones of our generation. When asked about his musical influences he explained his influences cannot be subjected to individuals, but rather derived from a vast range of globally ethnic backgrounds. He also feels the biggest problem in the Hip Hop industry today is the lack of truly creative mindsets.
With nothing like you have heard and nothing you will soon forget De Royale will pleasantly surprise you. Seeking to break free from the mold of ‘every other rapper’ he sets his sights on greatness declaring he is your next favorite artist.
