Rising singer, songwriter, and producer DENM has released his new single and video for “Califas” featuring Jared Watson of Dirty Heads and officially revealed the details for his debut studio album, Slum Beach Denny, out May 14th via Ineffable Records. Paying homage to those who have also grown up around Southern California, the smooth, reggae/rock hybrid track highlights DENM and Watson’s slick vocals and eclectic styles, transporting the listener into the passenger seat of a convertible, driving down the Pacific Coast Highway and tapping along to every beat. The video, directed by Brother Davey and Justin Segura, was shot in a multiple locations between Huntington Beach and San Diego.



“The ‘Califas’ video was a sick one. We shot it in two days all over SoCal. Jared Watson is just a legend for being down to go on 6 hour road trips just to get the shot. We got to make some art that we love and that’s that.” – DENM

“DENM reached out to me and I liked what I heard. But it wasn’t until I got in the studio with him that I was really blown away. He has that effortless talent. Not only with his voice but his vision and production. On a musical level, on a personal level, and on a creative level, the connection was there instantly. And you can hear that in the originality of ‘Califas.’ We chatted for a bit, bounced ideas around and then like that, we banged that song out in one session. It was done in hours, that’s how you know you have something special.”
– Jared Watson, Dirty Heads



A next generation artist, DENM’s signature sound features a unique blend of alternative rock, reggae, and hip-hop to embody who he has always wanted to be as a musician, creating music that he truly believes in. Slum Beach Denny is biographical in presentation, as DENM shares snapshots of his life through songs like “Califas,” “Life’s 2 Short,” and recent single “Fallin,” an acoustic jam describing the uncertainty of confessing your feelings to someone while wanting to make the transition from friends to lovers. The 16-track, self-produced collection also includes “My Wave,” which has garnered over 1.5 million streams, and “Blow It Up,” both of which have been featured on a variety of playlists including Spotify’s Beach Vibes and Soak Up The Sun as well as Pandora’s Top Thumb Hundred and Cali Reggae Countdown playlists. Elsewhere on the genre-hopping album are ska-infused “Find Your Own Way,” hip-hop leaning “Say A Prayer,” and reggae-tinged “No Break” along with DENM’s reimagined version of the Sublime classic “Badfish.” In addition to Watson, Slum Beach Denny also features guest appearances from JAG, GDSN, Casey Veggies, Sword Beach, The Patten, and Darnell Williams.
