Last night was a celebration of many things but most importantly it was the hometown launch for DRS’s album ‘I dont usually like MCs but’. My hometown, our Manchester came out in full force local artists old & new delivering their homegrown talents, wearing homegrown labels! Im not gonna lie im still drunk but not black out drunk i remember having an awesome time last night with some pretty awesome people. Big Up Del and all the Estate Recordings Crew, Marcus and the Soulution family, Band on the Wall and all that partied hard within her!
Not long now til Manchester family DRS drops his highly anticipated album, perfectly titled ‘I Dont Usually Like MCs But…’ in the wake of the release do not miss the album launches in London the 25th of this month and home town Manchester on the 26th, thats gonna be a long ass weekend for some people
Set to drop in August probably the most anticipated DnB album this year from MC veteran DRS ’I Dont Usually Like Mcs. But’ landed in my inbox last week and honestly i havent listened to much else since. So many amazing tracks, artists and producers on such an accomplished debut, im humbled to know him and to be a part of it. Currently the busiest MC from Manchester im guessin his bookings are gonna be out of control once this hits the shops! Avaliable now the singles Count to Ten ft Enei and Holding On ft Riya & Jehst are an epic slice of whats to come. Big up to all involved, raising a glass to your success xx
Such a great piece by Joe Muggs on Manchesters music over at the arts desk i had to share. Really proud to know and honoured to have worked with all of those mentioned in the article who’ve all been working hard and doing them selves proud for years, right now its about to pay off and how well deserved it will be! Big love to all crew the world is ready #mancsontour is gonna be a hash tag you see alot in the coming months lol!
So right now im on the sunny beaches of Sardinia probably getting geared up for todays live session at Ambra Day, gonna be a special show for me indeed as im doing all new material, looking forward to getting a reaction to it as its mostly been in the studio all summer! Kinda nervous but hey ho what ever happens it will be lots of fun! So wish you all were here but as your not and as im not either (i wrote this on friday, ah the joys of scheduled blogging!) heres a look back to last years amazing live session with Lynx & Kemo, DRS and myself at the beautiful Bal Harbour!
Woken up by a phone call this morning from a certain rapper who will remain nameless offering me box seats to his arena gig in town tonight as long i dont perform at Ballin On A Budget, man some people will try anything to sabotage the only place to be this Thursday evening. Mint Lounge with myself & Zed Bias, Fallacy, DRS’s Album Launch and of course the hosts with the most Broke n £nglish all for just £2, in the words of Curtis ‘ if they can’t do it, homie it cant be done…’ Need more inspiration then check these out….

So face bookers will have already seen the videos & photos from the awesome location that is Bal Harbour in San Teodoro. I’ve had the pleasure to perform there twice as part of Sun and Bass the first time 2007…was an experience for all, personally it wasn’t my best but this year made up for it no end! (more…)
