Following a landmark year in Rhymestar’s illustrious career as an MC, 2018 sees the unveiling of his own live show. With a performance debuting for none other than taste-makers BBC Introducing, the excitement around the launch of Rhymestar’s solo career as an artist in his own right is gathering increasing impetus.
2017 saw the release of four independent singles, all of which received airplay and on-going backing from BBC Introducing. ‘Take Control’, Rhymestar’s second single, was chosen and play listed as the BBC Introducing ‘Track of The Week’ on 1xtra, also receiving plays on Radio 1.
Merging sounds and influences from Jungle, Drum & Bass and Grime, Rhymestar’s unique style seems to be taking flight, gaining the attention of fans of the genres across the UK, Europe and as far as North America & Australia.
One of the most dynamic artists to successfully cement his name into the Drum & Bass scene, having performed at club nights and festivals in over 35 countries worldwide, including the world-famous Glastonbury Festival, Reading & Leeds Festival, Creamfields and EDC, he is not prepared to take his foot off the gas. Rhymestar’s aspirations to innovate within his field have seen him apply his vocal talents to not only DnB but Grime and Hip-Hop too. Often identified by an unstoppable flow replete with deep and meaningful lyrics, this recognisable talent is firing on all cylinders. As well as being the preferred MC for household DnB acts; Matrix & Futurebound, Tantrum Desire and Culture Shock, Rhymestar is also a permanent fixture at the Viper Recordings tour nights across the UK and further afield.
Having featured on Danny Byrd’s last album ‘Golden Ticket’ on tracks such as ‘BANG!’ and ‘Sublow Junkie’ (Hospital Records), he also made his debut release on Viper Recordings in 2015 releasing ‘Cardiac Arrest’ with Smooth. 2016 saw Rhymestar achieve his first ‘Beatport’ and ‘Track It Down’ number 1 ‘Anarchist’, collaborating with Tantrum Desire on Technique Recordings.
With a number of features on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Kiss the future is extremely exciting for this rising star, so sit back, buckle up and watch this space.
