DaVinChe Female First One To Watch

Female First list DaVinChe as "one to watch" on their music homepage;

"DaVinChe. For most, no introduction is needed. The 23 year-old has been a premier producer on the UK grime scene since his late teens. 2009 marks the release of his long-awaited debut, studio album. ‘Riding For Love’ is the first track scheduled for release on 8th June 2009.

Born and raised in South-East London, DaVinChe is a self-taught producer synonymous with the grime scene; playing an integral part of the work done by its pioneers such as Wiley, JME, Kano, Jammer and Skepta. ‘Eyes on You’, ‘Take You Away’ feat. Sadie Ama, ‘Gotta Man’ with Doctor, ‘I’ll Ride’ feat. Estelle and Bashy and Kano’s ‘Ps & Qs’ are just a few of the tracks that have put DaVinChe on the top of the UK music makers list. He’s been tipped for success by Wire Magazine, i-D, RWD Magazine and MTV Base.

DaVinChe is a trained guitarist and pianist and provided the grime element for ‘Urban Classic’, the BBC’s ground-breaking attempt to fuse grime with jazz and classical to create a 70-minute symphonic sound-clash that took grime onto a different plane. He also produced the score for SkySports NFL ad’s in 2006. More recently DaVinChe has remixed tracks for Britney Spears and M.I.A and contributed to the funky-house scene with the classic ‘In the Air’ with DJ Perempay and Katie Pearl."
