He is back… with a bang, no seriously. Donae’o has blessed us with his new project ’Sixteen’ which consists of 14 fiery tracks and features from some of our U.K faves; Wretch 32, Ghetts and Cadet to name a few.


Donae’o has always been best known as a hit maker who creates amazing hooks dressed with bouncy melodies. His production and collab credits are also just as impressive with him having worked with a wide range of UK artists and creating the theme tune for Channel 4’s on screen drama ‘Ubplate Drama’ and in the past worked on songs for artists like Ms Dynamite and Maverick Sabre, what can he not do?



‘I bring the energy, and that’s what’s make me appealing. It also means that whatever kind of music a person is into they are usually moved by my songs. I have seen it with my own eyes. I don’t say that to be big-headed, I say that so appreciative that I have been blessed with this gift.’
— Donae'o

With his timeless funky house hits ’African warrior’, ’Devil in A Blue dress’ and more dating back to 2008, The Donae’o magic has never worn off as he presents us with what could be one of his most accomplished projects to date. His latest project ‘Sixteen’ represents the 16 years that he has been in the game and what he has learnt along the way which has lead him to become a legend embedded within UK music culture, continuously providing us with genre hopping fluent sounds.


The mixtape features the likes of Ghetts, Wretch 32, Big Tobz, Belly Squad and more! This mixtape truly feels like a celebration of his career so far.
