The Delegates Of Rhyme have an amazing extended family, who over time have helped vice & Donnie get to where they are. Daniel Isles, the creator of the amazing Soap Box. Vice and Daniel collaborated through Soap Box, Basement Sessions, and Street Soul Productions. Now Daniel is taking the next step in his graphic based pathway and he needs your help…
Acid Drop is Daniel’s first graphic novel, and he’s starting with a bang! The story is about a professional killer named Charlie Cooper, who wants to disappear from the game for good, but in order to do so he must fulfill the buyout clause within his contract (highly original, i know), unfortunately, being one of the finest in the business automatically comes with the most outrageous price tag in the universe. It’s a fun, dark humored and gritty thriller.
You can be a part of this great project by helping Daniel to raise the necessary funds on Kickstarter.
There’s more info here too..
Please support an incredible UK talent to build his creative dream.
Peace and blessings
Apologies for the blog silence from D.O.R. but we’ve been a little busy of late, working on some very exciting new collaborations, recording a p110 (coming out next week!) and our first ever gig as The Delegates Of Rhyme! Footage will be coming of the set soon enough, but if you didn’t come along maaaan you missed out!
Thank you to everyone who came out, major props to Tricksta for the support and incredible energy, and thanks to Big Dutty Deeze, Lullaby, Raddical, Flowlosopha and everyone else who showed us love. We look forward to seeing you guys in Wolvo again soon!!!
And with it, we would like to introduce 4 incredible producers from around the World –
Mr. Kwazi –
Mr. Kwazi is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and beatsmith hailing from Ontario, Canada. A relatively-fresh face in the electronic music and beat scene, he has already caught the ears of many as a finalist in the Stussy Make Beats and Olivia Broadfield ‘Say’ Remix contests – in addition to collaborations with artists in Canada, USA, and the UK. Inspired by a vast musical background and by artists of many genres, his multidimensional style melts moody vibes into fresh drums, fuses classical precision with off-beat rhythms, and breathes new life into any sample he touches. The recently-released Bachelor Pad EP displays his sampling skills, using one song to create all of the album’s eight tracks. Mr. Kwazi is a dynamic artist to be on the lookout for.
Joe Bird –
Joe Bird is an incredibly hard working beatmaker, producer and youth worker from Burton (UK). As the creator of Rap-Torial, alongside MC’s Jaws and Shell Skruface, a member of the MUD collective, and a talented DJ in his own right, Joe is a regular name on the local scene. With increasing involvement in The Delegates Of Rhyme, and his EDM crew Them Deviants, Joe is a strong force in the UK and a name to watch in 2013 and beyond.
Myke Forte –
To introduce Myke Forte, it’s best to let him say it in his own words:
“Well..what can I say,,(pause) Im a beatmaker with a passion for music and art, subculture and underground movements. Creating music keeps me fresh it gives me an outlet so i can express how i feel and to see how it affects the people listening to it. Right now im making that spaced out hip hop, samples and pads, strings, electric pianos then seeing how i can mesh them together”
d. C. –
We are very proud to introduce d. C. aka Soul+Mind….
SOUND: A FUSION OF souL AND MInd
The mantra that resonates through Dennis’ body. A transmission of raw emotions translated through his hands and conveyed out into the world. The product of his hard work, dedication and hours on end given to his craft. Music.
Hailing out Los Angeles, California, Dennis has been featured on AOL’s producer spotlight and has worked on numerous shows and with artists around the world. “He’s got his own style. You can hear certain influences in his music but there’s definitely uniqueness to his sound,” says Matthew Kaplan former studio manager at Quad Studios in New York when asked about Dennis‘ music.
In his pursuit to build a name for himself, Dennis has gotten placements on a variety of TV Shows: How I Met Your Mother, Love And Hip-Hop: Atlanta, VH1’s Behind The Music, Access Hollywood, Pranked, and The Voice, among others, as well as artists: Method Man, J. Nolan, D. Larue, Roxiny, Elle Winston, Carmen Rodgers, Doey Rock, Fokis, Darkim Be Allah, NYOIL, and Dumbfoundead.
As Dennis puts it, “not to sound cliché, but I’m just trying to make music that inspires people. The world is a beautiful place and making music is the only way I see fit for me to add to its beauty.”
