We had the good fortune of connecting with Dyne Side and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dyne, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Pursuing a career in art is a byproduct of wanting to play music 24/7. Something we discovered at a young age with no thought of a long term agreement. I feel like you stumble upon it and then it’s your choice if you want to hold on or let go. Unforgivably ambitious for a pipe dream of “making it” but the real drive too is for the love of creating. Art can be therapy, it relinquishes you from the moment that has a grip on you and frees you from the minds tyranny. People forget how important art is for community and sanity. I don’t know how many times to our surprise people have come up to us and have told us that our music has done something for them. It is always a moving moment because we just go in with the pure intent of creating. With those kinds of experiences they help drive the motivation that it isn’t just about what we create but about the impact we can be to add reason to why we do this. Our why is to journey through the human experience and share our interpretation of it and everything else that comes with it.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Our art has come a long way. The songs we make today are all over the place, but the beauty is the vast amount of different sounds we incorporate into our music. We are Genre-Fluid. Drawing influences from all the diverse music we grew up listening to. We don’t like to box ourselves in a specific songwriting style and pursue whatever comes to mind and run with it. We want the music to evolve with us as people and create with no boundaries . We’ve been creating for many years now, since about 2010. A few inactive years at the beginning but got the ball rolling faster later in 2015. It wasn’t easy getting to where we are now. Life taught us how to be resilient in the industry, to just keep creating no matter the obstacles. We’ve toured for several years and can’t wait to get back on the road. We’ve been up and down the east coast and every state north and east of Texas. The best lessons were taught on the road. It taught us so many tricks and tips along with learning more about ourselves in the end. We want the world to listen to our music and feel our passion to find out what Dyne Side is about on stage & off.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We’re always hungry. hay hambre! First we shall eat FRITANGA ! Get the carne asada, a typical Nicaraguan dish at the local fave Pinolandia. Since we will be in Little Havana we can shut our eyes and walk to any cuban cafecito spot to recover from the itis. Then hit up Gramps or Las Rosas visit some old friends and grab drinks and catch some live music. Go dancing anywhere in Wynwood Art District and do the touristy stuff *photoshoot at the murals* LOL . After recovering from the hangover we need a dose of nature and sweat out the alcohol, to the Everglades National Park , get some nature trails in. Hay Hambre, to La Perla , Peruvian Seafood, ceviche and chaufa ! We gotta go to our studio now Dyne Side HQ : Artificial Memory Studio, hours go by while in the weeds of spilling our guts out on a song , yes we are hungry again , our favorite hole in the wall in West Hialeah , ASIAN GARDEN , family owned. Their sushi and orange chicken is pretty much what the band runs on. Alright back to the music again
