Upcoming, Dante is performing at Coast 2 Coast Mixtape Mixer NYC Edition on April 30, 2012.

Dante anticipates to release his mixtape Self Made by Design in early July 2012. The mixtape is a snap shot of Dante as an artist, compiled of self-produced beats with self-written lyrics as well as collaborations from other producers and musicians. As a form of expression, music allows Dante to share thoughts, feelings, and experiences through artistical language. Dante states, “All and all, music is not my ambition, it is my life!”
