Dan Black, former frontman with indie also-rans The Servant, is attracting attention as a leftfield singer-songwriter who uses samples and beats as his backdrop instead of guitars.

The London-born, Paris-based singer caused a buzz with his radical reworking of US rapper Notorious BIG's song Hypnotize, featuring snippets of Rihanna's Umbrella.
