“Dezi 5 is a unique animal in the Dallas music scene. As far as performers go, few pack the charisma and energy that this pop singer delivers at almost every one of his shows. Singing and dancing and dressing up in the most provocative (and outlandish) outfits he can come up with, Dezi is never too shy to shock and awe. So when he decided to crucify himself on 09.11.15 N.E., it kind of made sense.” – Jeff Gage

On January 24, 2017 Dezi 5 released the single “ExposeYou” which is available on all major streaming sites. Dezi 5’s new music video for “Expose You” is almost brazen in its quest to divert your attention. The time was right for Dezi 5 to make this move as he has never released a music video. The video was directed by Dallas artist Jeremy Biggers. “Expose You” was totally a personal way for him to express his feelings as an artist and human being in the world of hypocrisy.
In 2015 he released his first EP “Crucifixion on the DanceFloor” which brilliantly re-invents dance music for our time. It is a stunning creative leap into dimensions of EDM, elements of “trap”, future disc, and 90’s house music. Crucifixion on the Dance Floor features Dezi’s debut single “LOSE CONTROL”, an unapologetic club joint and “Dallas, Bitch!” a city anthem that earned me a ranking in the Dallas Observer’s top 20 songs of 2015 alongside Erykah Badu, Post Malone and Leon Bridges. COTDF establishes Dezi 5’s place in the dance clubs and fashion runways. It’s a mesmerizing sound that evokes embellishments and excitement, energy and innovation.
Dezi is a superstar with incredible showmanship and a persona larger than life. His performances earned him a Dallas Observer Music Award as “Best Live Act” (voted by the city) He is currently working on his first full length album; in the meantime he will be introducing “Crucifixion on the Dance Floor” to the Big Apple.
