DEX Serves Internash-ional Fierceness

By Mike Bahr


DEX Experience aka DEX is serving fierceness worldwide with the release of “Internash,” the first single from his upcoming album. Combining catchy lyrics with bitchy base, the empowering, feel good, party track has a 90’s sound set against a sassy, modern day kick.   Written and produced by DEX and DJ/Producer Omri Anghel, the song is about embracing the world as your playground. It draws inspiration from the pre-millennium supermodels who mesmerized, amused and enthralled every time they walked the runways and graced the covers of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar magazines. “I long for the return of the 90’s supermodel,” muses DEX. “When gorgeous ladies like Naomi Campbell would be in Italy with Mario Testino shooting a Valentino campaign in the morning, then whisked off by helicopter to slay the catwalk for a Chanel Couture show in Paris and the next day, they’re celebrating with friends on a yacht off the coast of the Maldives. The supermodels were here, there, everywhere: they were Internash!” he laughs. “Internash” by DEX Experience is being distributed by Ditto Music, and is available on iTunes.


“Unfortunately the era of the supermodel will never happen again,” DEX continues, lamenting how reality stars and actors dominate the covers of today’s fashion magazines. “Few of today’s so-called covergirls have the glamour, the grace, the power of Naomi, Christy, Cindy and Linda Evangelista.”


But that doesn’t mean the world has to lose its “Internash”. DEX says its up to the people to take the power. Each of us must realize our true life’s potentials and shine bright like the diamonds of the 90’s supermodel. He points to how he and many of his friends live the “Internash” lifestyle.


“When writing the song, I had my long-time friend Joseph Turla in mind. Twenty years ago, we were young kids in New York, jet setting around the world, performing opening acts for artists such as Whitney Houston, Madonna, Grace Jones, Cher, Bette Midler, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyonce, to name a few. As well, hosting at fashion parties for major designers such as Versace, Dolce & Gabanna, and Marc Jacobs. Today, I own my makeup line and Joseph is a celebrity fashion stylist for clients like Justin Timberlake and Joan Jett. We often find ourselves at shoots on opposite sides of the globe. I might be in Tel Aviv planning the next season’s campaign, while he’s in Sweden, styling Justin. We’re not fashion models, but we live like the world is meant to be explored. We serve it, turn it out, then walk and that is Internash.”  

DEX was born in Trinidad & Tobago.   At 5, he moved to New York City with his parents. They steered him in the direction of dance and musical theatre, enrolling him at La Guardia High School for the Performing Arts (the school made famous by the TV show, “Fame”). There, he majored in classical ballet. After graduation, he attended Marymount Manhattan College, majoring in musical theatre.


Young, sexy, and with an infectious personality, DEX found his way into the NYC underground nightlife, carrying on with the likes of Amanda Lepore, Candis Cayne and Laverne Cox. Nightlife would help to clear his path towards fashion and beauty. “There is no place like the NYC nightlife when it comes to networking with top professionals that lead to real jobs and opportunities,” he says.  


DEX is the founder of DEX New York, a healthy makeup line formulated with good-for-your-skin ingredients, high performance standards, photographic qualities, and an extensive skin tone shade range for women from Sweden to Sudan. “I strive for women of all colors, around the globe, to discover their true beauty from within and look flawless, naturally!”


This year, DEX New York celebrates its ten-year anniversary, a major milestone for any young company.   In that time, DEX New York has set the standard for the makeup, no make-up look and helped launch an entirely new beauty industry category: makeup with skincare benefits.


“The success of the company has taught me to believe in myself; to never dim my light for anyone. We are all so much more powerful than we believe ourselves to be. We all must realize that there are no limits. That’s the real message of Internash.”


He views the song as both a throwback to and an evolution from RuPaul’s famous song about the runway “Supermodel (You better Work)”.


“For some, Internash will re-light the fire of fierceness we first felt when Ru commanded us to work. For millennials and Generation Z who have only heard about those days and never got to experience them, Internash will be their chance to snap their fingers on the dance floor, bitch-face each other and just laugh up a storm to the beat of a liberating party anthem.”


“Internash” by DEX Experience is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and most online retailers and streaming sites.
