In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artist Carsten2X and his brand new single titled “Pearls”.
Dublin Hip-Hop / R&B producer and artist Carsten2X returns with his latest single “Pearls” via Paragon Records. Exuding confidence and humour in equal measure, Carsten2X regrouped with producer / mixer Richard Furch (Tobi Lou, Frank Ocean, BJ the Chicago Kid) for his first offering of 2022.
Of the new single, Carsten2X commented:
“When I was writing Pearls I was kinda stressing out about a lot of shit. I had all these songs but I’m there being a perfectionist (not to sound egotistical but just being picky with my own beats, and the type of music I’m making) and I was overthinking how to make my own sound. I actually do grind my teeth (no cap in my raps). And just venting about being an over thinker.”
Born in Dubai, followed by a short time in Kazakhstan, Carsten2X was predominantly raised in the Dublin suburb of Shankill. His moniker derives from a combination of his Danish heritage (his mother is from Denmark), and his Irish heritage, with the 2X being a throwback to a previous moniker and his home: Dublin (ie ‘double’n).
