Line-up: DAVID MRAKPOR keys; ABEL ADDINGTON bass; DUAYNE SANFORD drums
JD3 is a hip hop trio formed in 2017 & fronted by London based musician Duayne Sanford (Dua Lipa,Christine & The Queens, Liam Payne, Roots Manuva, Honne). On bass is Abel Addington (Roots Manuva, Liam Payne, Rachel Foxx) & on keys is David Mrakpor (BlueLab Beats, Banger Factory).
The combined rhythms and melodies of Jamaica, Ghana and Nigeria (their combined heritage) make for a tasty cocktail of musical blends. This trio was founded on a common love for the late great J Dilla’s extensive discography or cleverly sampled instrumentals and tracks. Their eclectic sound is inspired by the legendary producer with a live spin.
Collectively they have worked with the likes of Iman Omari, TinyMan, Misha B & J Dilla’s blood brother Illa J. They have played multiple sold out shows at Jazz Cafe and at Ronnie Scott’s. Frequent collaborators include Teni (vocalist), Daniel Taylor (talkbox), TinyMan (rapper) & Joon Switon (guitarist).
They have recorded a live EP with Illa J (John Yancey Live) which is out now on Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer & Bandcamp.
