Essential New Artist - D/C / by Eric Lum

This week's New Artist is a little gift from our friends across the water in the UK. His name, ironically, is D/C

D/C is a singer songwriter from Brixton with a distinguishable sound grabbing a lot of people's attention. His sound is a blend of R&B and soul with hints of jazz elements like synchronized snaps, claps and heavy drumming. These old sounds are complemented well with hints of newer, trendier electronic breaks creating an entrancing sound. 

D/C has been releasing music and demos for a couple of years now on his SoundCloud, but has burst the Tastemaker discovery bubble with his newest release 'Longing For You' that he put up on his SC profile at the end of January. The track defines his unique sound and it's rhythmic vibes keep you wanting more. 

The up and comer has already opened up for some big acts in the UK including Jay Prince and fellow Artists Anne Marie and HONNE. D/C has also been named one of the Top British Creatives to look out for in 2016 and will uphold that standard with his upcoming EP "Bad Man" set to be released this year. 

This innovative New Artist was added to recently by our SPECTACULAR Tastemaker Yo Fu. Listen to the track 'Longing For You' here.
