If the recently released album sampler is anything to go by, the second album from the Manchester-based MC DRS is going to be a massive one. Set for release on March 30 on Marcus Intalex and ST Files’ Soul:R imprint, MC DRS has called in an eye-popping crew of collaborators to help him bring his vision to life, including Addison Groove, Die, Calibre, Dub Phizix, Lynx, Drumsound & Bassline Smith, S.P.Y., Chimpo and even the bossman himself, Marcus Intalex.
Weighing it at a hefty 16-cuts, the album proper will be preceded by two album samplers, one of which has just hit with MC DRS linking up with Jubei for the booming lead single, “The Puppeteer” before flipping it into dubby territory on “Emergency” with Intalex on the flip.
It’s the first salvo in what is shaping up to be one of the most exciting MC-driven projects of the year.
