Announcing himself on the scene with his 'Gleamin' Freestyle series, DC is a South East native artist who plays in between the lines of rap and grime music. After supporting J Hus on his 2017 Common Sense tour, DC embarked on an incredible 2018 - a year that saw him scouted for a coveted Colors Berlin session; back on the scene and ready to make his mark.
Now, DC sets strong intentions with new single 'Dock City,' his name-sake and a single that talks on the notion of feeling lost in the system, and a desire to progress beyond society’s restrictions. The single marks a year of releases for the young rapper, who is moving in the realms of tastemaker talent and promises to “provide insight into myself, what I stand for and where I come from. It’s, for me, vital that I show people what the foundation is, why I talk about the things I talk about from an important and sometimes unheard perspective.”
DC’s confident and charismatic style is emulated in the production of his content, showing he can comfortably perform on a classic 140bpm grime beat as well as a slower tempo rap beat. His past releases already boast over 2 million plays coming from much further than his SE10 postcode. DC proudly embodies South East London in all his content, often referencing staple areas in his videos as well the lingo of his group “kinda gleamin, kinda local!” Which contributes to the authenticity of not only his music but his character.
DC was named as one to watch by Stormzy on his Merky Show with the star also highlighting his authentic laid back style. With performances under his belt at NewGen live, FutureSounds and Boiler Room, DC is in demand and has a rapidly growing fanbase. Set to be a staple on the scene, DC is your one to watch for 2019.
