There's an essential positivity and freshness at the core of IAMDDB's music – a surprisingly harmonious blend of jazz, trip-hop, soul and trap – that gives it a universal quality. Some of that doubtless comes from her upbringing. Growing up surrounded by music - her Angolan father is a member of an Afro-jazz band - Diana de Brito was born in Lisbon but grew up in Manchester, two cities which have shaped her own music - a touch of southern sun and Atlantic breeze added to the distinctly British urban sound she’s crafted. She deconstructs and re-arranges genres with a deft touch, to create what she calls “urban-jazz”, free-flowing music that is as slick as its name.
