A Brief History of Danny Brown’s Dance Music Collaborations

danny brown live li A Brief History of Danny Browns Dance Music Collaborations

During his recent live shows, UK grime producer Darq E Freaker has been making sure to drop a track he has with Danny Brown entitled "Hand Stand" in his sets. When Danny Brown tweeted a clip of this track, he informed the world know that it was forthcoming on his Fool's Gold album Old, which is said to be released in October. This was also one of the first times since 2012 that we'd heard Danny on a proper, massive grime record. Danny's had a history of working outside of the normal, "traditional" confines of hip-hop music (which you could see as part of his progression with The Hybrid). He has a flair for experimentation, and is gifted enough on the mic to find the right pockets and flows to give a beat extra life.

Don't believe us? That's fine. Take a look at some of Danny Brown's dance music collaborations, even if it's just looking at his work from 2011 through today. Here is a brief history of Danny Brown's dance music work.

    this is the worst Danny Brown list. Not even a mention of his feature on Purity Rings Belispeak II???

      Nor did we mention “Molly Ringwald” with araabMUZIK. Or “Headfirst” with DJ Muggs. Are you confusing “brief” with “complete?”

        Touche, although when most people write a “Brief” list they usually throw in the best bits. Anyways, compiling a slide on Danny Browns discovery of UK Grime makes this list void, last time i checked Grime wasn’t a genre associated with Dance music.

          Grime is born from dance music, and is closely associated with a number of styles of music, including garage and dubstep. But carry on.

            Associated with dubstep? good one! Google.com tell you that?
