Daseca beating engery into Dancehall


Since of late many young producers such as the talented group Daseca are braving the odds to mastering the art of digital audio production and recording. Once again dancehall music has evolved with the majority of current rhythms featuring synths & horn streaming over patterned percussion drum lines flooded with snapping Hi Hats all tracked, edited, mixed & mastered digitally.

At this moment Daseca is certainly one of the busiest & most credible production groups. Daseca the group is comprised of David & Craig who are brothers with Serani anchoring the unit. Known for crafting some of the hottest riddims of 2007 Daseca has been enjoying success both on and off radio play lists with projects such as Badman Place by Movado & Busy Signal, Dying by Movado & Serani, These are the days by Busy Signal and What I’m gonna do by Bugle. As young producers they’ve earned the respect and appreciation of many top dancehall artists including Bounty Killa, Movado, Alaine, Assassin and their most recent protégé Bugle. Heavy in the streets and building a reputation of consistency in quality & creativity Daseca has a quota for studio sessions but agreed to answer a few Q&A’s with us at about music production.
What’s the influence behind the name Daseca?

“Well, when wi just started doing music, wi did a try find a name that was original, it was David that actually make up the name, and is basically some thing that have all a wi name. So it’s like DA David, SE Serani & CA Craig”.
With production credits for some of dancehall’s biggest artists what would you say fuels your creative energy?

“Well firstly a love fi di music everybody have the same love, everybody have the same vision. Getting Daseca bigger it's not really a individual thing, no man not looking for it by them self, everyone just working towards getting Daseca out there so if one man build a Riddim is Daseca, if three man build a Riddim a Daseca, so anything happen any man do an interview it's Daseca. A just suh it work at the end of the day”.
Your rhythms always seem to have a cross over international feel.

“Well we try to be different, if we hear a riddim out there we try we best to stay far from it, we try wi very best to sound different because you have to bring something original to the thing you cant live your life off a next man, you have to be unique so people can say yea Daseca unique dem bad, but at the same time you have to go for the crossover sound cause at the end of the day you can love music but you haffi make money out a it, and the money is overseas so you have to try get them people in your thing”.
What’s in your production arsenal of equipment?

“Well firstly we don’t use drum machine fi build Riddim, straight keyboard we use, Triton, Phantom Motif we start using REASON now. In terms of recording we use NUENDO, anytime now we a plan fi change over to PRO TOOLS which is the standard thing, you haffi tek things in stages when we start out it was from nothing, we start out without computer is a likkle machine we did have - a 16 Track Machine a run in riddim, 2 Track and just voice an put out, so a desso it start from. Jeremy Harding help wi setup Nuendo Program".
Do you experiment with other genres?

“Well if you listen to Busy Signal These are the Days that have a hip hop feel, Dying Mavado that have a hip hop feel, we have a song with Matterhorn and Alaine so we don’t only do dancehall riddims we do music. The riddim don’t of to have that one two beat we build a riddim and if wi feel Mavado we put Mavado. Right now is Bugle thing, we have a whole heap a thing and is not your regular dancehall thing a music we a deal wid, worldwide thing”.
Name a few producers you consider credible?

“Alright, if you go international Swizz Beats, Timberlan, Dr. Dre then locally now you have a thing called Dave Kelly whole heap a ratings respect to him, Jermey Harding same way. In terms of the youth dem now Steven McGregor crazy talented youth wi rate him fi see a youth from 16 a make dem hits deh, dem thing deh make we feel good”.
The artist Bugle, what’s your plan for him?

“Firstly Bugle is signed to Daseca, is Daseca artist it's official and is the first time we doing something like that where we sign a artist, a mean we buss Mavado we send Alaine out there but we neva sign them so that’s a first. To we is a big move fi we you get mi. "What I’m Gonna Do" is the first single which was excellent we just do the video fi the next single called "Journeys" then you have the collaboration with him and Serani called "Though" which also doing well. We’ll be shooting the video for that Sunday too. So as I say we have some mad singles with Bugle which we consider to be hits, between Daseca and TJ alongside Bugle. ”.
Who are some of the International artists Daseca would like to work with.

“Alright definitely the man called R. Kelly, great no matter what dem say great great, Nelly Furtardo that’s something we would want to get done too but the real goal a fi get our artist ova desso. Bugle Serani cause even though we rate them is our thing, Daseca we a push”.
