Über Dan Black
Equally inspired by classic Brit pop and Gorillaz's brand of postmodern pop, Dan Black is an English singer, songwriter and producer whose style ranges from intimate bedroom hip-hop to big-screen balladry. He played in a rock band called the Servant before moving from London to Paris, where he began working on his own fusion of hip-hop beats and electronic production with classic pop songwriting. He first found Internet fame with 2008's "HYPNTZ," a mash-up of the Notorious B.I.G. and Rihanna, and in early 2010 he released his debut album, Un, with an appearance from Kid Cudi on the opening track "Symphonies."
