Born Desmond Fahie (pronounced "foy") in Crooklyn, NY 1979, D’Fahie was introduced to music at the age of five through the musical talents of his parents and church upbringing. He fell in love with the drums and later began experimenting with singing, incorporating syncopation with the art of melody. D’Fahie listened to artists such as Bobby Mcpheron, Prince, D’Angelo and Erykah Badu. For him these artists in particular seemed to sing individual notes like each one was an instrument itself and then harmonize them with what the rest of the world was listening to. Heavily influenced by jazz and Afro-Cuban rhythm, D’Fahie notes, “I adore Latin music, especially the chords that they sing their hooks in.” He was exposed and enjoyed listening to GoGo music in Washington D.C., where he studied the complex rhythms it presented and began to understand the importance of a consistent dance rhythm. D’Fahie says of the experience, “definitely the best thing to ever happen to live music.” What is most important with listening to good music of any genre is the ability to evoke a multitude of emotions. It is within these emotions that remembrance of events take place. D’Fahie says, “it is in this place that songs are born, concepts orchestrated and executed. Writing comes easy for me; however, life wasn’t exactly easy for me and my family. Everyone loves a good story.” D’Fahie’s story is told in various projects. Performing under his given name or monikers such as Des, OBN, AudioTap and RPMinus1, D'Fahie has cultivated a rich and eclectic history. In the last year D’Fahie has released two albums: Silly Humans and Know Control – both of which provide a Gospedelic, undeniably fresh sound. D’Fahie connected again with fellow Dog Men Poet alum Matt Barker to form the partnership called Dual Prophets. This duo has been described as “Eclectically unique, yet surprisingly familiar...” For more information on D’Fahie visit www.twitter.com/RPMinus1, www.myspace.com/audiotap, reverbnation.com/rpminus1 or find him on Facebook under Desmond Fahie.
