Melbourne via Perth via Seattle artist Strictly D.T returns with his first new music in two years on the contemplative and empowering track ‘My Life’.
Since breaking out on his own as a fully independent artist and releasing the first of a new chapter of self reflective works with his EP Note to Self in 2019, Strictly D.T has garnered a reputation as one of the country’s most madly respected lyricists.
Fast forward to 2022, with an International Songwriters Competition win endorsed by Ziggy Marley, Lorde, Booker T. Jones, Tom Waits and more under his belt, the unstoppable artist is finally back with some fresh bars to sink your teeth into.
‘My Life’ is a self-determined, community-focused call to arms to maintain autonomy and resilience amidst ongoing oppression and adversity.
Produced by prolific New Zealand DJ and beatmaker Spell, and mixed and mastered by MattyMadeit, ‘My Life’ sees Strictly D.T at his most fluid and earnest, his rhythmic mantras spat atop a dreamy bed of subdued synths and bass, creating the perfect atmosphere for dreaming big and living even larger.
