"Carrying a Family Dream"

Two brothers are working to turn their hobby into a full-time job. Darnaye Hines, 28, and his brother Darnelle, 33, have spent their free time for the past eight months producing a hip-hop CD from the studio they have built in the basement of their parents' Fort Washington home. The brothers are like many aspiring musicians. They work full time and make music when they can, but their work earned them a Wammie nomination from the Washington Area Music Association last year. Darnaye is an engineer and research assistant for the Prince George's County government. Darnelle is a Unix systems administrator at Lockheed Martin. "Music has always been a part of our life -- all the way from our great-grandfather, who was in the Lionel Hampton Band, to our grandfather, who was a jazz collector," Darnaye said. "Our father was a local DJ." The Hines brothers began putting together their studio in 1998 and say they will begin touring soon. Commercials for their debut CD -- "Diverse" -- will soon run on local VH1 and BET channels. "We've come a long way," Darnelle said. - PG Extra Washington Post


"It's Time To Change The Game"

In a city dominated by the live sound of Go-Go, D en'D proves that hip hop lives in DC too. These brothers from the same mother are destined to show you what happens when DC swagger puts its touch on Hip Hop music. - Kapital Magazine


"Fashionably Hip to the Beat in Adams Morgan"

"You can mingle and make friends, and you never know who's gonna fall through," says Darnelle Hines, a computer programmer who spends his evenings and weekends producing music and publishing an indie hip-hop magazine called the Kapital. He finds time to visit Commonwealth about three times a week: to browse, to shop, to chat people up. "We can all talk about music here. It's just a good place to be." - Washington Post

Bio

In the Chocolate City otherwise know to people around the world as our nations capitol, Washington, D.C., there is some kind of force that seems to be taking place. A cultural renaissance may I suggest or some kind of movement. A D en'D movement! D en'D Productions is Darnaye "DJ S.E." Hines and Darnelle "DarnGood" Hines, the premier Hip Hop group of Washington, D.C. Their brand of Hip-Hop music is unlike no other, covering a wide range of sound from Jazz, R&B, Rock, Reggae, Go-Go, Electronica, Hip-Hop and other musical influences. These brothers are back to unleash their new CD a Hip Hop classic entitled, "In Our Own Lane." Once again, D en'D Productions, have broken the sound barrier with delivering superb music. DJ S.E. & DarnGood paint a vivid picture of the music business from DC to NY then Boston, and all over the Hip-Hop globe with "Fly Brown Brother." D en'D, also had the pleasure of working with Boston Legend Edo G., DC Legend DJ Kool, Akir, V-Pro & Enoch. S.E. and Good have been putting it down for a minute. Their music can be heard on national distributed projects such as comedian Roland Powells Dat Boy Funny DVD and DJ Kash Monees Dollars & Sense Mixtape Volume 2. They have independently released (6) Albums, (5) compilations, (5 )mixtapes, (4) 12 Singles, (2) DVDs, (5) Videos and have executive produced on the cities most known MC's albums: Akir "Legacy", Zaars "Aspecs", Frankly Speak.king "Clown Royal", Porche 911 "Changen Lanes", Kandi Girl "Kandi Land", Brother Maniac, Laelo Hood and others. "In Our Own Lane" is surely a must have for any Hip Hop head. D en'D has produced on projects with mega producers like Digga (Six Figga Ent.), Chink Santana (The INC.) and Akir (One Enterprises). They also, appeared on the front cover of Streetz Magazine with the Ying Yang Twins and hosted their own show The Street Beat Review on im4radiodc.com. The Duo have found another way to give back by starting their own publication called "Kapital Magazine." The magazine focus on indie Hip Hop from Baltimore to Virginia Beach. The title Dynamic Duo is the only way to describe D en'D and their music.
