Darnell Stewart (blacwaldo) - Electronic Musician

I'm a young brotha from the south. Ocean Springs MS, to be exact. Most people don't understand how someone from such a underdeveloped state to could come up with such highly developed music. I started playing guitar at the age of 10. Being from Mississippi, I had to learn the Blues first. After mastering the pentatonic scale, I moved on to study Jazz Theory and was eventually introduced to electro-funk. After years of experiments with different softwares, synths, and music production classes; I started making my own tracks. I'm heavily inspired by odd house producers (Mr. Oizo, Feadz, Kazyo, The Phantom's Revenge etc.) as well as funky house producers. If I could describe my music I would say it's a mix between Flying Lotus and The Phantom's Revenge.
