Brixton is changing, but - for now, at least - it retains that individual flavour, that unique sense of community.
Perhaps that's why D/C lives there. Snapped up by Atlantic, the R&B sensation is steering anthem after anthem online.
New cut 'Badman' includes guest lyrics from Jay Prince, and it's a suitably raucous production inspired by "a heavy weekend"...
D/C explains: "'Badman' was written in my messy bedroom after a heavy weekend. You know that feeling when you wake up and you don't want to check your phone, your bank balance or your reflection in the mirror? On the way home to Brixton a preacher man had called me a 'Badman' several times. It’s like he knew what I’d been up to! That was my inspiration."
Tune in now.
