For those of you who haven’t heard of DAMIAN BURNZ — Man are you missing out big time.  As co-founder of   “END OF THE WEAK”;  A multi-national entertainment brand.  Recording artist, and producer to the likes of SLAINE (SPECIAL TEAMZ, LA COKA NOSTRA, SUPREME VILLIAN), DAMIAN is really keeping busy.  Catch a glimpse inside the unique mind of: DAMIAN BURNZ.

OO: You having ties to both, the hip hop and hardcore scenes, as well as many other genres as well as other forms of media;   you have been able to see the evolution of the genres joining forces.  Can you talk a little bit about what you have seen and what you think for the future?

DB:  I’ve definitely seen what we’re looking at/listening to come to be what it is today.  First of all the web is an artist’s dream come true. When I first got into thinking about doing my own music, this was a dream that probably all of us had as artists and finally manifested.   As far as “scenes” go, I like to think I realized a while back that people are people and we are constantly changing. In the 90’s there were times when I’d go to a hardcore show and after walk a few blocks to an open mic. <-Hip-hop.  After I got a few drinks in me it was off to the rave spot till 7 or 8am. I think the Internet was kinda designed with this in mind plus the peep shows and the biggest mall in the world open 24/7. The only scene we really belong to is the consumer’s scene.   As far as Hardcore & Rap, I’m not a fan. There are only a handful of records that I can say I would listen to.  The future is brite.

OO: What projects are you currently involved with?

DB: I have a long list of people that have Hip-hop tracks of mine that are in the works. As far as my own, I have 2 full electro break records & a Hip-hop album that I will put out in the next year or so.   I’m also working on an EP with my boy Jaysaun (Special Teams) right now called “Boston Yankees”.  Real dope boom-Bap ill lyrics going at people’s heads type shit. Expect to hear/see something in the summer.

OO: What would be your ‘Dream Project’ or have you already been able to do your ‘Dream Project’?

DB: My dream project is to create a sound that would take away all the pain and suffering in our world.

OO: What is your signature ‘thing’ that sets you apart from the other artists out there today?

DB: If I were to say I have something special about myself would just be my ego talking. I do my thing. Other people do to. I am Damian Burnz, the one and only.

OO: Describe the writing and recording process you go through.

DB: The writing process: It always has been different for me. I don’t have any special rituals that I go through. <- that I’m aware of anyway. Sometimes I can bust out beats all day for weeks even months. Other times I won’t touch a drum machine for weeks.

OO: What is the one thing you wanted as a kid and never got that you would still fork out some dough to get?

DB: Stability
