James Scott "Jimmy" Tamborello, more commonly known as Dntel (pronounced /ˈdɪntɛl/), is an electronic music artist. He is sometimes cited as James Figurine, the co–programmer and vocalist for the electropop outfit Figurine. Other projects include Strictly Ballroom, Headset and The Postal Service. Tamborello has indicated that the name was not intended to mean anything. When asked to create a meaning for it, he quoted it as a shortened version of "Don't Tell" although he admits that this meaning is a bit of a stretch. There are some speculations on the name being based on the word Accidental (dntel), although Tamborello has not confirmed this origination.
