Gene Dante

H1 Massive recording artist Gene Dante and the Future Starlets have made a career out of picking glitter from the gutter and wearing it to their black-tie affairs. Shuffling down the sordid streets, the indie rock rat pack travel shoulder-to-shoulder with the deviants and debutantes about town, stepping out to the beat of their own banged-up drum kit.

In 2021, their waltz kicks down the door to DL/UX, the group’s forthcoming full-length album, due out 2021. The 15-track record pulls back the velvet curtain on a modern speakeasy, the fabrication of lead singer Gene Dante. But little beyond the concept itself is made-up; beneath the group’s jewel-encrusted facade are the lyrics that Dante writes -- and later, croons -- entirely captured from his own experiences. Elegance, debauchery, and sweaty tales from New York and Los Angeles stages come perfectly preserved in the headspace of DL/UX, wrapped up in risqué realism.

“It crashes through the wall of pop,” Dante explains. And once that wall’s in pieces, DL/UX takes the sledgehammer to all of mainstream music’s formalities.

DL/UX builds upon the group’s past successes, which began with their previous album opus The Romantic Lead, released via Omnirox Entertainment. Produced by Peter Lubin, the record’s single "A Madness To His Method'' made its way into rotation at MTV's LOGO Network. Follow-up single "The Love Letter Is Dead" peaked at number 2 on local radio airplay charts, and remained on the charts for 16 consecutive months. Most recently, Gene Dante nabbed a Boston Music Award nomination for “Best Male Vocalist''.

Gene Dante’s music has been featured in 2021 on:
The Underground Garage on SiriusXM, Boston Emissions with Angelle Wood, Bay State Rock, Bumblebee Radio, WZBC’s Fuzzed Out, Blood Makes Noise, Christian’s Cosmic Corner on Mark Skin Radio, Worcester Magazine, Drop The Spotlight, Radio Candy Indie Show, Your First Listen on KNNZ Fargo, Everything You Know Is Wrong on Salem State Radio, Rising With Skybar on WMFO Tufts University, Lonely Oak Radio, Ricky’s Daily Bangers, Tinnitist, Volatile Weekly, and other fine radio stations, blogs, and programs.
