“Din Daa Daa” (also released as “Trommeltanz (Din Daa Daa)” or as “Din Daa Daa (Trommeltanz)”) is a song written and performed by Berliner musician George Kranz, released as a single in 1983. His only international success, “Din Daa Daa” became a club hit which peaked at number one for two weeks on the US Dance chart. It also charted in several European countries.
The song title loop, the echo between Kranz’s onomatopoeia and his drum solos and the synth sounds which can be heard afterwards are the main characteristics of this song.
Regarded as a dance classic and as a precursor of human beatboxing, artists still refer to this song today. The song has been sampled, covered or remixed by many artists, including M|A|R|R|S, Kevin Aviance, Pulsedriver and Flo Rida.
