Last week DOR linked up with Birmingham based MC and spoken word artist Kinnie Daley for a video shoot in Shoreditch alongside the amazing videographer and photographer Michael Afrifa. The visuals are for The Delegates Of Rhyme mix of Kinnie’s track Keep On Pushing. After previous collaborations, and Vice producing his Melodies Of A Nice Guy project, it was great opportunity for the trio to link up and build upon an already released track that has already had a great response. Check out the track below, and stay tuned for the video coming soon!
So! This year the DOR Family have been regularly saying that new music is soon to be released! Well it’s true! Over the coming months the fruits of our musical labour will be revealed, and the first seed to be released is that of Bristol based rhymer C-Froo and Vice with the brand new Unit 1 EP, released on the 16th October of Crudely Cut Records, the label that is home to the likes of Deb Tebiase, Social Conscience, Tom Long and many more. The EP is the first of a trilogy, offering amazing local collaborations withe the likes of Jonny Steele of The Scribes, Miss Twist, Mista Switch of Crudely Cut and DOR’s very own Donnie Numeric.
The EP was launched last week at the amazing Wordlife one year celebration. The event featured live performances from The Delegates Of Rhyme, Skrilla UGQ, Mr Inglorious, 2 Deep and the launch set for C-Froo and Vice. The crowd were packed into the Snug on Stokes Croft, and from 11:30 Vice dropped beats for back to back DOR and Unit 1 sets. The buzz was tangible and the head nodding beats and bars were a great introduction to the new project. Visuals for the project are soon to be released courtesy of SA Media. The EP’s feature graphics from Mr Riks of the infamous KTF Crew and Elusive Designs. Avilable on limited Edition CD and digital download from Bandcamp now.
We Never Miss is one of two tracks that feature Donnie Numeric. The project as a whole also features regular DOR collaborators including
Alex-Is and Phil Jeong, alongside Social Conscience and Tony Stone.
Please support Vice and C-Froo, and stay tuned for more music from the duo very soon.
Let’s keep it moving!
