RETAPE, the review curated by Ernesto Assante and dedicated to the new proposals of the Italian music scene, returns.

DAG is an emerging Roman artist born in 1998. He considers writing, in all its forms, a fundamental part of his existence. Through it he found a way to externalize pain and turn it into music. January 2022 saw the release of his first song, "Maniche," which was followed by "Gira," "Maggio," and "Alto mare," once again confirming the artist's distinct sensitivity in writing. After being selected among the 43 participants in the Sanremo Giovani 2022 live auditions, DAG offers his single entitled "Away with Me," which opens the door to a new production season for the young singer-songwriter.
