The Desperate Project

     A black night sky, glittering stars, and a lonely heart. Desperate by N'Dea tha Dada, ft. Aïda evokes the yearning loneliness that lingers in all of us. Unabashedly give into your vices and sink into the world of N'Dea tha Dada's Desperate - release date 10/20/23  - produced and performed by N’Dea tha Dada, featuring Aïda, and mastered by Tuck 88.

     Based in New York, N’Dea tha Dada is a musical and visual artist who creates melancholic soundscapes that evoke deep emotion. Her music, composed of alternative melodies over hip hop beats, harkens to 90s era trip-hop, neo-soul, and even grunge. Her music can be likened to artists ranging from Morcheeba and Sneakerpimps to Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill.

I am the dark side
of the sun.
