Who? D/C feat. Jay Prince

What’s the story? We first featured rising London star D/C back in February 2014 when he caught our ear with a great early tune. Since then he's signed to Atlantic and spent time developing his sound and this track showcases him as an artist ready to step into the big time. Beautiful & Fragile is a dark, assured and minimal, yet heavy, piece of slow electronica/hip hop, crafted alongside US producer Dave Tozer, who's worked with the likes of Kanye West - and there's more than a hint of West's more introspective moments on My Dark Beautiful Twisted Fantasy about it. Jay Prince contributes an urgent guest verse to create a great all-round track: keep an eye on this artist in 2017.

For fans of: Kanye West, Mabel, Jorja Smith

In three words: Dark minimal electronica
