Album Press Release: Funky DL - "TWENTY"


MOBO Award Winning Funky DL accomplishes a never-before-seen landmark in the UK Music Scene as a Hip-Hop Artist with the forthcoming October 2nd 2020 release of his 20th vocal-studio album entitled “TWENTY”.

Accumulating an impressive 61.5 million cross-platform streams since 2015 Funky DL has arguably been the most consistent Hip-Hop Artist from UK shores over the last two decades. Referred to as, “the hardest working man in Hip-Hop”, DL has pioneered his sound, specialising in jazz led, organic and authentic Hip-Hop, which has become revered by fans, who reach out from far and wide across the globe - including high profiled celebrities, such as Jill Scott.

The new album showcases DL's mastery, by incorporating Boom-Bap, Trap, Neo-Soul/R&B and Latin with variations from Samples to Live Instruments throughout the long player set. From silky smooth to rough and rugged, cheerful to melancholy, the production across the album is impeccably pristine, evidencing DL's vast abilities as a versatile Producer and demonstrates the extremely high level of class, sophistication and finesse he delivers to audio.

"Twenty" also features a slew of talented British Artists, showcasing performances from vocalists Stee Moglie and Cicero, as well as rap performances from Abioseh, Songer, Teddy Reiss and El-Emcee. Live instrumentation contributions are also included from the Jazz Funk Artist Xantoné Blacq, Guitarist Ed Riches and Bassist Sean Allen. Twenty is a celebratory album, evidencing Funky DL's discernible contribution to Hip-Hop music spanning over 20 years plus.

Perhaps the most diverse album amongst Funky DL’s extensive catalogue, “Twenty” provides listeners with a musical richness and further exemplifies that Funky DL has grown into an unmatchable force as a double-threat MC and Producer. Having toured the world over, the album is a stark reflection of why DL receives so much international reverence. The appeal of his melody-driven sound is wholeheartedly self-evident.
