DMTN’s Dari’s Discography

DMTN’s Dari later continued his journey as a soloist and released several new songs as his new job as a songwriter and producer.
On April 29, 2019, Dari uploaded a new music video on his YouTube channel with a single titled “Horlove,” which means “Horror Love.” It is an impressive song with a simple loop of G-Funk beats and an addictive hook. It contains a satirical message that reflects the fake love between a man and a woman in the flow of the times and expresses it without hesitation.
On October 28, 2019, Dari released another audio for his tracklist from his album DARIDENTITY entitled “COLOVE” which means a song that compares love to color. With a calm and dreamy piano sound and soft melody, a man goes to meet the woman he loves. It is a love song that reflects her heart pounding and fluttering in a colorful image.
On the same day, Dari released audio of another single titled “Time Line” (feat. XOi). Unlike the emotions he showed in his previous songs, in “Time Line,” he compares his life with his lover to a timeline, expressing what he likes, shares, and empathizes with musically. The song was composed by the producing teams 8BEAT and BULLY from the hip hop label BLOOD CAMP.
“String” is a song that compares love to a string. In an attempt to unravel the entwined relationship of lovers, the song expresses the breakup in the end. As for the featuring, the voice of Sohyun, with whom he worked with in “Really Really,” further maximizes the emotion of the song. It is a song that is expected to have more musical repercussions for Lee Dari and KIXS (Kiss) in the future.
The first solo album of Lee Dari, a former Dalmatian member that will soak everyone’s hearts like a shower, was released. The Dalmatian former member Lee Dari and Jisoo collaborated with each other to compose “Rain Shower.” Lee Dari and Jisoo continued their activities while participating in Dalmatian’s b-side songs. The emotional rap and lyrics of the song, which have not been seen before, soaked the listener’s heart like a shower.
“Rain Shower” expresses the longing for parting with a shower, expressing memories, nostalgia, and longing for a lover. The dreamy piano sound is reminiscent of childhood memories, and the lyrical lyrics that evoke nostalgia for old times make it a song that listeners can immerse themselves in with their emotions.
Not only did he upload some of the songs he produced but Lee Dari also uploaded a short clip for the Samsung Galaxy Note9 All Day Battery advertisement. He looks really cool when he appears in this advertisement as a rapper and also a songwriter as well, showing how he works in his daily life using the gadget that was released from Samsung in July 2020.
On September 9, 2020, Lee Dari made his comeback after almost a year of not uploading a new single through his social media. In his new song titled “Hearthog,” he uploaded a very cute lyric video featuring a green hedgehog on the single cover as well as the lyrics of the song. “Hearthog” is a hip hop song that harmonizes with a retro guitar riff and simple beat.
On May 10, 2021, Lee Dari made another comeback and released a new music video for his new song titled “Hwa Du” featuring Ztash. In this music video, which is dominated by these two rappers, it sounds fierce and the concept is very much up to the standards of K-hip hop.
