IAMDDB Drops Single 'Wokeuptoflexxx (W.U.T.F) And Announces New EP
Urban jazz trailblazer, Manchester’s IAMDDB releases her new single ‘Wokeuptoflexxx (W.U.T.F)’ on Union IV Recordings, taken from her eagerly anticipated fifth EP ‘SWERVVVVV.5’, out 22nd February.
Produced by Londoner Drae Da Skimask, ‘Wokeuptoflexxx (W.U.T.F)’ opens with the bold statement “Fuck ‘em all yeah, we don’t give a fuck”, sang in IAMDDB’s signature jazzy style over a swagged out beat.
‘SWERVVVVV.5’ is the fifth and final instalment in a collection EP’s IAMDDB has released, and follows up 2018’s ‘Flightmode Vol.4’, Pitchfork described the lead single ‘Drippy’ as “…an expansion of the Manchester artist’s smooth sound into sleek, downtempo R&B”, and ‘SWERVVVVV.5’ has much more to offer on the same wave, re-introducing urban jazz, a throwback to the future, ‘SWERVVVVV.5’ mixes old school energy with grimy sounds.
IAMDDB (real name Diana Debrito) famously decided to do music when she took a trip to visit her Dad in Africa to watch him play. Back home in the 0161 (Manchester), she dropped out of university after a one-hour lecture and uploaded her breakthrough track “Leaned Out” on Youtube that day.
