Biography

Dream/Clone – New York, NY

With their dramatic flow, jazzy beats and a flair for the hypnotically melodic, Dream/Clone has been winning over audiences since their formation in 2003. The trio’s new EP, Transymphonic, is music for both the body and the brain; songs for both dancing and thought, and signifies the arrival of a unique and winning new act that has persisted and grown in some of the most unlikely of ways.

Dream/Clone originated at Amherst College in the late 90’s. Staze, (Dave Stasiak) a lifelong musician who had began his musical life in his church and school choir and had moved on to studying classical and jazz in college, began incorporating hip-hop beats in his work, along with elements of techno and house. In his senior year, while making an album for a school project, he happened upon Brett Richey, a Pittsburgh native and lifelong hip-hop lover and both an aspiring rapper and poker player. The two found that their music styles fit, and Brett ended up laying his lyrics and flow on Staze’s beats. The material they created would comprise over half of their debut album, Future Holds Nothing, released in late 2004, under their new name, Dream/Clone.

Going the independent route, the act financed themselves through a somewhat unorthodox manner - Brett’s poker winnings. As he explains, “After college, I didn’t want a real job, so I kept playing and getting better. I caught the eye of Eric Lindgren, one of the top players in the world.
