Following on from excellent single Love Will Take Me Higher (with UK rapper K.I.N.E.T.I.K), DARGZ’s low-slung beats meet the sultry laid-back piano of Charlie Stacey for new single Annie’s Tune.
“Growing up my grandpa loved playing big band music of the 30’s and 40’s whenever we would drive around Los Angeles with him. I fell in love with the clarinet and folks like Benny Goodman, and Sidney Bechet and wanted to riff on that tone with a more contemporary beat. “
Bringing some New York hip-hop flavour to the contemporary London jazz scene DARGZ has bagged some nice collabs; most notably with Mercury Prize-nominated drummer Moses Boyd.
