George Kranz

15 December 1956


George Kranz is a German dance music singer and percussionist. He is best known for his song “Trommeltanz”, otherwise known as “Din Daa Daa”. The song hit No. 1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1984 and then returned to the chart in a new version in 1991, peaking at No. 8. “Din Daa Daa” (sometimes spelled “Din Da Da”) is considered a classic dance music track and has been remixed, sampled and bootlegged many times, including in 1987’s seminal “Pump Up the Volume” by MARRS, 1998’s Praise Joint Remix by Kirk Franklin, 2005’s “Shake” by the Ying Yang Twins, “Turn Around” by Flo Rida and an Xbox 360 commercial.
