Brixton act The Dandadda, created by producer Dan Vinci, has developed a fabulous hybrid sound, mixing electronica, reggae and other genres. The single “Heart Attack” is now available on video. This is the first single in a series of releases The Dandadda is planning to publish in the near future.
“Heart Attack” is motivated by the hyper-gentrification of Brixton. Dan Vinci grew up in this culturally diverse English city. He’s worked with reggae musicians from early in his career. The Dandadda has also involved well-known names in the project, such as Horace Andy (Massive Attack), Earl 16 (UB40), Junior Dan (Gorillaz), John Holt and The Ragga Twins (Skrillex).
