FRIDAY - Main Stage
With more than 16 years experience in pioneering UK street sounds and original dance music, Donae’O, meaning ‘Gift from God’, is the gift that keeps giving. A producer, songwriter, vocalist and MC, he released the now seminal UK garage cut ‘My Philosophy (Bounce)’ way back in 2002.
Bang-on production that flits from grime to garage, R&B and beyond, his forays into singing, rapping and lyric writing have gone on to shape the star that’s in many ways still yet to be fully revealed. Until now that is. The new self-produced single, ‘Black’, featuring JME & Dizzee Rascal, has the underground happily popping gun fingers in approval.
In terms of collaboration it’s a strong record of achievement; Donae’O featured on Lethal Bizzle’s singles ‘Go Hard’ & ‘Not A Saint’, Breakage ‘Speechless’, The Streets ‘Fit But You Know It Remix’, Shy FX ‘Raver’, Jack Beats ‘You Should Know’, Maverick Sabre’s ‘I Need Remix’ and Foreign Beggars ‘Flying To Mars Remix’. More recently Giggs ‘Lock Doh’, Steflon Don ‘Family Ties’ and Big Tobz ‘My Circle’ have had Donae'O reaping praise.
