"Dazz" was a hit song by R&B/funk band Brick. "Dazz" is a combination of disco and jazz. Released in 1976 from their Good High album, it would become their biggest hit, spending four weeks at the top of the R&B singles chart and reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.[1]

Ice Cube sampled the keyboard riff and lyric "Well allright" in his rap song "No Vaseline". Rapper Dana Dane sampled the keyboard riff in his 1988 hit song "Cinderfella Dana Dane".

In Diary of a Mad Black Woman, in the family reunion scene, the family does a line dance to the song. "Dazz" is also the way Uncle Frank laughs.

Previous Websites


Nothing Inc.


Dazz's first independent website that hosted sprites. He used basic methods of providing them, with HTML and manually updated pages. It was hosted on Aftervision after his friend Deekman asked Dan to host him. The site gained a small community of users, and gained a minimal amount of popularity.

Deek'n'Dazz


After Dazz was offered his own web space, instead of having a sud domain of Aftervision, he asked his friend Deekman to join him in creating a larger sprite archive, using both of their databases of sprites. The site became widely popular on the internet for hosting Naruto sprites.
After some disputes between the webmasters, the site was closed, and they both went on to make their own, independent websites again.

Gippy Tummy


Dazz's first time in running a large database of sprites by himself, while using the website for mainly written media, such as Reviews, Rants and Tutorials. He had a lot of issues in running the website due to having lots of negative feedback in losing Deekman's Naruto sprites.
In the end he closed the website after gaining the name of webmaster of The Spriters Resource, and spend his full time working on that.

Life Style


Dazz is a middle-classed boy who lives in the United Kingdom. He was born in 1991, and lives with a family of 3 brothers, 2 sisters, and dozens of distant relations.
