Dane Uno

HOTT: Where were you born raised what city do you live in?

DANE UNO: I was born and raised on the Southside of Chicago. I live in New York.

HOTT: Being from Chicago, you had the opportunity to pursue your dream,

your artistry any where in the world. Why did you choose New York?

Dane Uno: I chose New York because it’s close to home. I have a lot of love for NY as well as California but I felt New York was best in a sense for me to move around and aim for what I wanted to accomplish based on my music style and city similarities. I can blend in and travel like I already know.  I’m a true Hip-Hop head.



HOTT: Define yourself with one word.



HOTT: Who and what do you represent?

DANE UNO: I represent Family TF. Teamfirst.


HOTT: How did your name become apart of you?

DANE UNO: When it came to making business decisions over non-sense, I always ended up moving solo, UNO!



HOTT: How long have you been in the game?

DANE UNO: Forever, lol. I’m back from the future.


HOTT: How did you get your start as an artist?

DANE UNO: Working with Dug Infinite, producer partner of mine at the time from Chicago. NoID.


HOTT: Name of your label?

DANE UNO: Junkadelic Music, Paris France.


HOTT: Name of Management?

DANE UNO: Independently Managed.


HOTT: While the majority of artist, are falling in the same circle of sound.

You have always chosen to go against the grain with your creativity. What’s your view?

DANE UNO: I always try to counter what is going on around me musically,

being where I’m from to where I’ve been and life experiences; creatively I’m

different. I like music that’s not like my style as well because of the uniqueness

of how people write.


HOTT: What inspires you to stay in the game?

DANE UNO: The love of the art.


HOTT: Who is the one person in the music industry you would like to work with?

DANE UNO: A few people but Jay Z would be my person of choice because

he is at the top in my genre.



HOTT: Who are some of the artist you have had the opportunity to work with:

DANE UNO: I’ve made songs with “BadAzz from DPG”, “Baby C” in LA, “Kool Keith” in Hollywood, CA. I also opened for Mary J. Blige in St. Louis, worked with “APlus” from Souls of Mischief, “Never” of Crucial Conflict, “DJ Alamo of Brand Nubians, “PrincePo” of Organized Kunfusion,Dug Infinite is who mentored me at a young age at JayChill Studios in Chicago which influenced my Hip-Hop path without knowing it.


HOTT:You have recently been collaborating with legendary “Kool Keith”. How did that come about?

DANE UNO: I actually had the opportunity of meeting “Kool Keith” in Hollywood, California in 2002. We worked on a few projects before I went back to Chicago. We then ran across each other last year on my birthday in Manhattan. He was like, “Yo, Wassup. I need you in the studio, take my number”. Somebody took our picture and then we was recording, ‘Hoodini’ the next week


HOTT: How was the experience of working with ‘Kool Keith’ in the studio:

DANE UNO: Crazy! I’ve been in the studio with Keith before but for it to all

happen so fast again. It was like we continued were we left off in LA. After

all my hustling in NY. Lol, we did a couple more songs. You can find on the

‘Final Destination Fixtape ‘ on datpiff.com


HOTT: What was the inspiration behind both songs ‘Hoodini’ and ‘Bring Me Down’?

DANE UNO: ‘Hoodini’ was basically a way of saying how people where I’m from might have forgotten about me or like I just disappeared and not going to make it in music. My insight for ‘Kool Keith’ is him showing how emcees in his class might have forgotten his abilities as well. So we used a little magic to reveal our disappearing act. “Hoodini” by ‘Kool Keith ft. Dane Uno is on Vinyl and can be purchased at Fatbeats.com


DANE UNO: ‘Bring Me Down’ is a song driven toward the artist who cant get right, not being creative, growing with the music,  and pushing the art or rather depend on a dollar for motivation for they own self. So, don’t ‘Bring Me Down’ cause I’m Ma keep grind’n!



HOTT: Title of your current album?

DANE UNO: "Everything In The Dark Comes To The Light" Junkadelic Music 2017 by Dane Uno


HOTT: Any Shout-outs?

HOTT: To purchase music and for collaborations how can labels, artist contact you?

DANE UNO: www.DaneOne1@gmail.com, or Twitter @therealDane1 I gotchu direct!


HOTT: Final remarks?

DANE UNO: Yes, the grind is hard! Nothing is worth having if it was easy. You appreciate things more and are conscious of your surrounding everywhere you go as an open-minded person. Hip-Hop lives within me and it has affected my life in many ways. Sacrifices for one from the people you love to meeting new people in new places.  You experience as you go can become very valuable in your future life in whatever it is you do!

HOTT oFF THA BREAST NofacE Shadowmen


Hott: When was your 1st musical encounter?

NofacE: As a child, my room upstairs, had a built-in intercom/stereo system. Music was played to educe sleep. Instead, the music kept me awake and listening until it was almost time to wake up. In that softly lit room, the seeds were planted.

NofacE: Just a hand full of main tools needed to record completed works; keys, strings, percussion.

Hott: How did NofacE Shadowmen come to life, from the name to your mysterious fashion sense?

NofacE: My name, was a description of the me, absorb light in honor and attempt of seeking/sharing truth’s illumination in sound. “Funk is the bone!”


Hott: Have you ever allowed a fan to see under your masque? Yes/No Why?

NofacE: NO! Never! I cannot easily allow anyone to dwell within the curtains of my little box, with a tiny circle! Seeing me! What would one do with that which completely counters reason? Frustration and misunderstandings would encroach, placing one right back where one started. Thus, a veil Most-Lasting…


Hott: How does your creative process flow once you have the concept your going to build around your music? Do you start with a musical note or a key phrase?

NofacE: Relaxed in a darkened room, I listen to the music that is mixed in with the room’s air. With eyes, you can hare something! Faint; let it come away from the walls. Let it increase in volume on it’s own! Sometimes, by acting like you don’t really hear “IT” and music, being a show-off, “IT” will swoon and demand your attention. Now, remember IT! Record IT! Share IT “IT”, “The music”, will not visit often if you change it or keep it to yourself!


Hott: What inspires you to continue creating music?

NofacE: I have seen, in my room, masterpieces wafting about! Teasing ans so enticing! So elusive and yet unrecorded…So, I go on!


Hott: What is the name of your current album?

NofacE: Naming works as a collective, has not been my motif, as the entered alone…me, being known by a fraction of a fraction of a fraction, any collection or compilation of my works world brandish my name…


Hott: Where can the world find your music?

NofacE: Honored, thus setting a place at the table of funk, I adjust a chair, allowing the world to rest and partake of that, which is online or, dolled in person…

Hott: How can you be contacted for future bookings?

NofacE: A branch, on which I perch, may be rattled at 619-820-0803 via, The Good Man, Joel Steele.


Hott: What is next for NoFace Shadowmen?

NofacE: More recording! Bigger EXPOSURE! “Love”

Once those glossy lips entice the microphone it’s like revival. “Different Sides/Same Coin is the title of Shameys’ Mix tape in which she performed Thug Azz Beauty Queen, Magic Carpet Ride, and Closer To My Dreams. Shamey is most certainly that closer to being a breakthrough artist for the world to see. Shamey never cease to amaze the crowd by giving the people what they want, raw talent. She is one female who may make others feel threaten with her broad array of vocals as she flip the switch with her thug-a-licious rap flow that can be felt around the globe.
