dB cut their teeth in the mud UK festival circuit and on the sticky floors of London clubs, evolving into a turbo-charged 10-piece hip-hop jazztronica outfit playing reflective originals that show off the best in drum and brass. They rep an unholy number of horns on the front line, backed up by the tightest scratch DJ, sousaphone and drum rhythm section this side of the millennium. Every tune is layered with breathless improvisation, meaning dB have built a big reputation as pioneers of one of the freshest sounds London has to offer. They’ve opened up the Truth Stage at Glasto, sold out a hometown headline show at Jazz Cafe and supported the likes of Roni Size, Plastician, and DJ Yoda. They’ve just released their self-titled debut album, a distillation of their sound, packed with features and solos from the crew.
