Born and raised in East London on a diet of grunge, calypso and jazz, D.ablo is a product of his environment and an exception to the musical rules, combining mainstream charisma with underground originality. Influenced by everyday life and his open-minded musical taste, he writes anthems that have both immediate appeal and slow-burning hidden qualities.
D.ablo first came to the public’s attention as a member of the legendary UK hip hop crew TerraFirma, making a name for himself thanks to his unique vocal style and multi-instrumental abilities. Since then he has worked with a diverse group of artists including NERO, Maceo Plex, Alix Perez, Paloma Faith, Foreign Beggars (recently performing with them on the single 'Anywhere' at the iTunes Festival at London's Roundhouse), 16Bit, Ayah Marar and Noisia.
D.ablo also makes up one half of the Sleeping Giants production unit with fellow TerraFirma graduate Skriblah DanGogh.
His underground party and record label Boglewaltz is known for its eclectic music policy and fun-loving crowd. Recent guest performers have included Damian Marley, Aloe Blacc, Questlove, Benji B and MistaJam.
D.ablo frequently showcases his talent alongside the producers he learned his craft with, moving between acoustic singer songwriter material, steel drum solos, emotional ballads and striking harmonies with the confidence of an artist sure of his roots but always looking to expand his musical horizons.
