DESPIERTA

FRESH: ‘Despierta’ (EP) – Di WAV

Di WAV releases her “Despierta” EP

Electro-Pop, Synth-Pop

Florida based electronic, synth artist Di WAV releases her brand new EP, “Despierta”, today, showcased with her version of Depeche Mode’s 2005 hit, “Precious”, a brave move for anyone!

Di WAV pulls it off, however, losing nothing of the originals quality and yet lacing it with her own synths, rock guitars and her own, haunting vocals that would do well alongside Dave Gahan’s!

Di WAV again exhibits her incredible, passionate voice and talents throughout the four-track offering. Blending her love for rock, electronic and indie music with heartfelt lyrics, she creates a dark and mysterious atmosphere for listeners to get lost in.

Of “Precious”, Di WAV states: “More than a cover, to me, it is a tribute to the band and how much they have touched me with their music throughout my life. I think it’s a nice way to close the EP because of what it means to me on so many different levels”.

Di WAV (Daniela Carpio) is a Guatemalan-Swiss-Latin artist. She developed her creative side at a very young age, showing interest in art and music. At the age of 14, she wrote her first song and began exploring the world of modelling and acting. She made her entrance in 2018 with the tune, “Dominos” and has been a constant and rising global star ever since, releasing her debut EP, “Masoquista”, the following year.

Her 2020 singles, “Mente Criminal”, “Ellos” and “Cristales de Hielo”, were all performed in her native Latin but now 2021 offers a new English language EP of cinematic quality and with a collective of new recordings and accompanying videos in support to boost Di WAV’s name internationally.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
