DRS

Decades into a remarkable career that has spanned seven albums and countless pieces of honest, inward, and elegantly narrated music, it's only now that DRS is sharing music with the world that is the purest reflection of himself. With 2022 marking two years sober for the Manchester-based MC, DRS's latest album on Shogun Audio acts as his most unadulterated body of work to date.  

Having championed merging emotive wordplay with the complex rhythms of drum and bass music, DRS' five solo albums, as well as two collaborative LPs with MC Dynamite and LSB, have gone some way in cementing his reputation as one of the most unique, talented, and iconic lyricists to ever grace the drum and bass scene. 

In the 1990s, he landed a spot as the resident MC at Club Xtreme and came into contact with drum and bass artist LTJ Bukem and rapper MC Conrad. At the time, DRS was one of only a few rappers who could keep up with the fast speed of drum and bass, going on to appear on many of Bukem's tracks. DRS’ Manchester movements also saw his Broke’N’£nglish hip hop collective support the likes of Jurassic 5, Mobb Deep and Wu Tang Clan in the 90s. 

After releasing his debut LP 'Grown Man Biznizz' in 2011, he quickly followed up with his sophomore album in the form of 'I Don't Like Usually MC's But...' a year later, featuring collaborations with the likes of Dub Phizix, Calibre, dBridge, Lenzman and, S.P.Y. Then, in 2015, DRS released 'Mid Mic Crisis', his third extended body of work. It was this album that acted as host to 'The View', a collaboration with LSB and Tyler Daley which has since established itself as one of the most iconic drum and bass tracks of the past decade. 

Following a quieter release period, 2019 saw DRS release two albums in the space of twelve months. First, the Manchester-based wordsmith released 'From The Deep', a hip-hop soul project on his own Space Cadet imprint, before dropping his first collaborative project with LSB in the shape of 'The Blue Hour'. In 2020, DRS and fellow MC Dynamite signed to Hospital Records as a duo, with this period seeing the pair release their 'Playing In The Dark' LP. 

Most recently, 'Light Language' saw DRS embark on the journey of his sixth studio album. As hard-working as he is incredibly talented, DRS is now on the verge of releasing 'Del-Rok-Ski' on Shogun Audio.
