Romance has always been dancehall’s calling card, but on Dani Draco’s latest release, “Trouble”, he bridges the gap between the blinding lust and trust issues to delivering a hypnotising love song for dancefloors fascinations. The lightweight beat he produces guides his melodic rendition as he finds the sultry middle ground between the rough-hewn aesthetic of Jamaican dancehall and the smooth sound of R&B.
Singing “The place too rowdy, I no go fit to dey another party/ Meet you in the lobby/All night got the bitches in the club looking sorry”, over the mix of the melancholy piano loop and guitar harmonies draped over a catchy drum riff, Dani Draco sets the dancefloor scene with his vivid imagery. But it’s the modulation of his voice, pushing it until it squeaks like sneakers on a basketball court that makes “Trouble” so captivating as Dani Draco shows off his variety of flows while approaching the beat from all sides.
