DRS – I Dont Ususally Like MC’s, But . . . (Soul:R)

 

 

With a reputation now stretching well over 15 years, DRS is a truly versatile MC, host, lyricist and recording artist. Cutting his teeth and touring worldwide with the legendary Good Looking label, his soulful style on the mic and honest lyrics are unmatched. In recent years, he has been an integral part of the Soul:r camp, recording tracks with Mist:ical, Calibre, Marcus Intalex, and Lynx & Kemo and appearing as resident MC for Soul:ution and A Bunch of Cuts nights. To show the versatility and wide appeal of his unique style, in 2012 he has now become part of the Toddla T sound system as Toddla T’s official MC. On top of all these achievements, DRS is also head of the Estate Recordings label in Manchester, part of hip-hop crew Broke’n’English, (alongside fellow MC Strategy and DJ Konny Kon), and a respected recording artist in his own right with a massive hit ‘D.F.T.F’ on Metalheadz alongside Need For Mirrors kicking off what promises to be the best year yet for this talented Mancunian.

His recent output including the massive Count To Ten with Enei and Holding On with Lenzman have really set the bar high for the rest of his new album, but we wont be dissapointed. A quick flick through the tracklist reveals an album literally brimming with talent:

 

1. Soul Remember ft. Fox (Prod. Dub Phizix)
2. Blackhearted (Prod. Lynx)
3. Autonomic (Prod. dBridge)
4. Do What? (Prod. Genotype)
5. Star Voyager ft. Jenna G (Prod. S.P.Y)
6. It Ain’t Easy ft. Kim Nishikawra & Tyler Daley (Prod. Marcus Intalex)
7. Play Wid Fire (Prod. Dub Phizix)
8. Renegade ft. Kemo (Prod. S.P.Y)
9. Holding On ft. Jehst & Riya (Prod. Lenzman)
10. Keep The Faith (Prod. Calibre)

13. Habitual (Prod. Calibre)

15. Music To Me (Prod. Marcus Intalex)

 

Now that’s what I call an album. Cannot wait for this one.
