IAMDDB Brings a show to KOKO London

Diana Debrito who might also know as am IAMDDB is a Manchester vocalist whose music is full of fearless attitude and sensual soul. Her sound, which melts together neo-soul, urban jazz, hip-hop and R&B, is by turns sharp and seductive.

The manchester native has been on the scene since she released her EP Waeveybby Volume 1  and since then she has been making name for herself not only as with her voice but also with her distinct sense of style.

The first time we saw the songstress was when she graced the KOK stage opening for American aritist Jhené Aiko earlier this year where she killed her set and got the mood set and the audience hyped for Jhené. We were more than happy to head down to KOKO this time to experience IAMDDB headling her tour #FlightmodeLive.

The tour which was in collaboration with Red Bull Music saw IAMDDB criss-cross the UK for four unique themed shows, with the audience invited to dress to capture IAMDDB's particular vision. The themes across the shows included moonlight for Bristol love for Birmingham, back to the future for Manchester and heaven and hell for London.

The vibes of the show was nothing unexpected from IAMDDB as she played a range of songs from her catalogue including fan favourites like Shade and Back Again. Not only did she come through with her own bangers but she also brought fellow artist Nadia Rose who played her hit tune Skwod as well as giving the fans an exclusive performance of her new single.

The audience was like and the interactions throughout the night were certainly one point as the songstress made sure to interact with fans throughout the night giving out roses to everybody that entered the venue and also giving out drinks to a select few in the front row.

Although her set only lasted an hour which was quiet short the audience seemed to really been taken by the vibes and enjoyed the performance her finisher Shade really brought the tour to a great end and finished the show on a high.
