DaVinChe is an English Record producer and songwriter from South London, England.

His notable works include Kano’s “Brown Eyes" and "P's and Q's” and Tinchy Stryder's “Something About Your Smile”, "Breathe" and the production of Star in the Hood (album).

Biography[edit]

He co-founded the record company Paperchase Recordings when he was 16, where he is responsible for the creative direction.[1]

The self-taught studio producer and engineer was named by Wire Magazine as a talent to watch. He has enjoyed great success on the underground urban scene.

Although he began his career producing grime tracks, he has since turned his talents onto projects across various genres.

Artists he has written and produced tracks for include, Giggs, Wiley, Estelle, Kano, Tinchy Stryder, Tinie Tempah, Bashy, Bluey Robbinson, Wretch 32, Shola Ama, and others.

There is a subtext to Davinche making him more difficult to pin down or stereotype, he is a pianist and guitarist, who composes and arranges all styles (grime, hip hop, contemporary RnB, and pop) . He has performed a classical concert for the BBC.[2][3][4][5] There is a ground swell of support and expectation surrounding the still young producer.

In 2011, DaVinChe stepped up from behind the buttons to release his first solo artist single Ft Baby Blue - Ready To Go

DaVinChe's debut album "Open Minded" is expected early 2012 and is rumored to feature a whole host of collaborations including Wretch 32, Kano, and Cleo Sol.
