Although dné aka Ondrej is not classically trained and has almost no knowledge of music theory, his music speaks with an innate musicality. His style draws on beautiful orchestrations, sample-heavy techniques (including field recordings), organic beats and DIY-type recording and arrangement, giving his music a unique sound with an overarching cinematic feel.

Whilst aiming to create something timeless, the album, entitled ‘These Semi Feelings, They Are Everywhere’, became a 5 year long process of devotion, commitment and realisation. The record communicates an underlying commentary on today’s world of Internet driven hyper-realities, superficial connections and the increasing elusiveness of romance and relationships. Reflected in the song titles are themes of late-night chats, online dating, and fleeting moments of intimacy instead of finding deep and meaningful relationships.

In Ondrej’s own words: “You just live a long series of these semi feelings that are OK for the moment but don’t leave a significant memory in the long run.”

As a result, these aren’t love songs but they are Ondrej’s reflections on trying to navigate through these experiences, which may feel melancholic but always seem to gain a light optimism in the end.

"It's lazy to always compare artists to artists, but if you like Nicolas Jaar or Nils Frahm then you are gonna fuck with this guy's delicate orchestrations.“ – Noisey

„dné prefers trapping sounds from real life audio – which can be as simple as moving boxes or recycling glass and plastic – and mixing them into his tracks. The result is a raw, unique sound that stands out from other musicians.“ – Wonderland
