Video shoot with Kinnie Daley

Screen Shot 2015-10-26 at 14.25.31
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!

Yo yo!

hey up peeps!

We just wanted to check in with you and let you know that we still exist! We  are busy working on new material, collaborations, and some exciting support on the horizon. Look out for an exclusive mix Vice has been putting together for a super fresh clothing company, and an acoustic video of one of the first tracks we ever released. PLUS, the Assemblage EP is coming VERY soon so stay tuned for that. 

Peace people! 

DOR

All will be revealed tomorrow!…

A message of support, delivered as a rant

Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 23.48.03A few months ago, a musical mystro mentioned about a humble, intriguing and passionate music fan that was looking to illustrate UK Hip Hop in a positive and innovative way. Marina Antonova openly explains how she knew nothing of Hip Hop, and after a choice encounter with Semtex among others her whole perspective of the scene was altered. Since then she’s been on a covert mission to do something to mark the scene’s influence and creativity and show the beauty of (certain) elements of the art form.

Vice contacted her to show the Delegates Of Rhyme’s take on things and also to show appreciation for what she was doing. After a few months of silence, Marina kindly returned with an almost heartbreaking tale of her crushed ambitions, and, as promised, a mention of DOR’s music. We know how hard this industry can be, and it’s horrible seeing people trying to make a difference and being stopped at every turn. We can’t say too much about what she is doing, but know this, if she reaches out for support we will be there, and you, as a fellow Hip Hop fan, alas, a fan of music, should also answer the call when it’s time.

Rant over.

Deeper underground….

Hello fine Hip Hoppers!
We firstly want to apologise for our lack of communication over the last few months. We are finishing of our album “Assemblage”, readying the next single release, arranging remixes, organising and planning videos and generally maintaining the way that serious independent artists do! But have no fear! We will be back very soon with some more Delegates Of Rhyme goodness to pump through your speakers!

In the meantime, we wanted to let you know of a few developments that have been taking place with the DOR family:
Donnie Numeric –
For a while now the DOR camp have been very excited about the release of Donnie Numeric’s solo project “Yellow Haze”, and in true Delegates style Donnie has dropped a teaser of just under 40 seconds to wet your musical tastebuds! –

Vice –
Each week Vice’s hosts “The Kaleidoscope Radio Show” on Passion Radio Bristol. He recently caught up with UK rhyming legend TY, for what TY called “The best interview I’ve had…Ever”! So if you fancy some amazing Hip Hop and inspiring and in depth chat with one of the UK’s greatest, have a listen here –

Philip Jeong –
A new addition to the DOR team to some of you, but behind the scenes Phil has been working on some incredible collaborations with Delegates Of Rhyme, Joe Bird, Harvs & KLB, Vice, Teez and MANY more! Keep an eye out for this brutha! –

Teez –
The young beatmaker and MC hailing from Bath has recently been signed to Temple Records, a brand new Bristol based Record label. Recently performing at the label launch party alongside Mr Woodnote and Lil’ Rhys, this talented young producer si set for big things in 2014 and beyond! Catch him on Vice’s show this Saturday from 4-6pm – http://www.passionrb.com , and check out the exclusive of his brand new track “Pen Plays The Sword” here (It’s track 17!) –

Joe Bird –
Earlier this evening, Joe Bird, alongside collaborator Hyper have released their gritty and brutally honest new video for “Fatal Attraction”, once again touching on subjects that affect every day life. Please do not watch this with young children, as the content may upset younger viewers, but it’s a strong message and one that needs to be spread –

Alex-Is –
Two thing on the Alex-Is front. The first is major news, and a massive congratulations to Alex, who a week ago became a Father! Majore blessings and congratulations from your DOR family brutha! And on a musical note, check out Alex-Is and Nature The Kidd with their really nice rework of the Fugees classic “Oohh La Laaa” –

We will be in touch again very soon, but in the meantime, thank you as ever for supporting us.
Peace and blessings,

The DOR family

Vice and Donnie Numeric interviews on Urban Vault (blogs)

urban-vaults-logoDuring the influx of new supporters for “Stresses and Definitions” helping us to develop our support and help to further our opportunity of collaboration and making even more music we were lucky enough to spotted by the amazing online community called Urban Vault. UV is much more than a blog, with it’s own clothing line and UV Academy (their You Tube channel) they are giving artists, like ourselves, a platform to develop their music and create links in the indusrty.

Giles Sawyer, the creator of Urban Vault has been a massive support, blogging the release of Stresses, and also taking the time out to interview both Vice and Donnie Numeric.

You can check out the interviews on the link below:

Once again, thank you to Giles and the UV family.

Delegates Of Rhyme – Stresses & Definitions (Spoken Word Version) f. Joe Bird (Video)

The Delegates of Rhyme return with their long awaited single “Stresses & Definitions”. Featuring Seraphym aka Dina Deez, an incredible lyricist from Birmingham, Stresses tells the story of different three characters from different perspectives. Offering an insight into modern day living and the perception of women within music, the vocals work alongside a soundscape from Vice, the production arm of The Delegates of Rhyme, offering a golden era-esque feel giving the track depth and character.

To complete the vibe, Joe Bird of Rap-Torial creates an intricate tapestry of cuts to weave together the three verses, adding context to lyrics. Joe’s constant input in The Delegates Of Rhyme includes cuts, remixing and even recording certain elements of the forthcoming project.

With The Delegates of Rhyme already receiving support from the like of BBC Introducing, Disorda, DJ Shorty, Carasel (Ambush The Airwaves), A Gee (Itch FM) and many more, the duo are rapidly garnering attention and support from the UK and beyond.

“Stresses and Definitions” is the second full release from The Delegates Of Rhyme’s forthcoming debut album entitled “Assemblage” coming mid 2014. As with their music, the group take an alternative approach to visuals, and as opposed to going for a standard music video they have created a stripped down, sombre yet beautiful sunset visual, that allows for Donnie’s words to be really heard. Filmed and edited by Vice, and shot in Bristol during a two day recording session, the video offers a moment of contemplation.

The track is released on 11th January 2014 as a free download, and the remixes will be launched one week after (18th). The track will be available from:
http://www.delegatesofrhyme.bandcamp.com

And to stream from:
