Degs’ hit single ‘Poveglia’ and 8-track ‘Mixtape Sprayout’ has made him a drum & bass fan favourite, now he takes centre-stage to unveil his highly anticipated debut album, ‘Letters From Ndgewa’. As well as producing, writing and singing on his tracks, Degs has brought in an all-star collective with S.P.Y, Logistics, Unglued, LSB and Pola & Bryson. His unmistakable charisma is injected across 14 tracks, including his previous singles ‘Levitate Your Mind’ (ft Unglued) and ‘Killer’.

‘Sleepless’ showcases Degs’ versatility as a vocalist. This deep, atmospheric number, produced by Shogun Audio’s Pola & Bryson, wields the art of spoken word and unique lyrical flow for a mesmerising late-night stepper. Degs’ bittersweet soul shines through on ‘Head Trip’ with the production finesse of Phil:osophy. Haunting piano work serves as the foundation for Degs’ silky flows, tear-out rap and snappy hooks. Hospital heavyweight Logistics, a master of liquid D+B, joins the fray on ‘Colour My Soul’ for a sublime track that takes you back to the original Hospital loungecore sound.

Degs’ meteoric rise has taken him worldwide, performing alongside his touring DJ, Lens, at huge summer hotspots like Audioriver, Sun & Bass and Hospitality In The Park. He continues to shine when hosting for some of D+B’s biggest names – London Elektricity, Hybrid Minds, Danny Byrd – and has already received support from BBC Radio 1’s Rene LaVice, Kiss FM’s Andi Durrant, Charlie Tee and Mollie Collins, and Worldwide FM’s Laurent Garnier.

Lyrics:

We the people
You’ll never stop us from the ways
We use to see through all your haze nah
Yeah we see you
Maybe we’re lost up in the rave
We’re trying to live our lives with flavour
Our hearts are the last to give way
So we trust music to numb all the pain
Cos you don’t ever speak the truth
Trying to dissect it from the news
You actually think that you can play us?

We’re the roots
Don’t forget that
We’re the roots
We’re the roots

Don’t forget that
Don’t forget that

We’re the roots
We’re the roots
Don’t forget that

We’re the roots
We the people
You’ll never stop us from the ways
We use to see through all your haze nah
Yeah we see you
Maybe we’re lost up in the rave
We’re trying to live our lives with flavour
Our hearts are the last to give way
So we trust music to numb all the pain
Cos you don’t ever speak the truth
Trying to dissect it from the news
You actually think that you can play us?

Don’t forget that
Don’t forget that

We’re the roots
Don’t forget that
We’re the roots
We’re the roots

We’re the roots
Don’t forget that
We’re the roots
We’re the roots
We’re the roots
Don’t forget that
