For most UK music fans, no introduction is needed when it comes to super producer DaVinChe. Born and raised in London, south of the river, he played an integral part in shaping the Grime scene right from the start after releasing some of the most legendary tracks to date including Kano’s ‘Ps & Qs’, ‘Brown Eyes’, and ‘Rider’ which featured Ghetts, Steelo, JME and Keedo. The young Grime producer also had a part to play in the early careers of Tinchy Stryder (‘Breathe’ / ’Something About Your Smile’) and Tinie Tempah (‘Tears’).
Now in 2016 – a year which has been dubbed the ‘year of the comeback’ – DaVinChe is ready to unleash new music onto the world. This new music comes in the shape of ‘The VinchOnacci Project’ – quite simply put, a 9-track project full of brand new instrumentals.
In the ten years since first making his mark, DaVinChe now says that he feels like he’s finally in a place where he wants to be and that, “It’s made me the most honestly creative I’ve been so far”.
The idea behind ‘Nacci’ stems from Leonardo ‘Fibonacci’ Bonacci’s sequence (in a similar way, he previously took inspiration from Leonardo Da Vinci for his own name – DaVinChe), which he said really fascinates him, “I look at Nacci as a metaphor for our inspired side. It can be anything that inspires us. And this then allows us to be more creative”. Relating this back to his music, DaVinChe said that this has allowed him to be more ‘free’ in what he makes – it helps to represent a whole new side to him that he hasn’t been able to prior to this.
The VinchOnacci Project hears DaVinChe’s productions as musical as ever, whilst still staying true to his roots in Grime. The 9-track project also includes ‘The Last War’ – a track that was co-produced by long-time friend, and fellow producer, Boy Better Know’s Jammer.
