V.C.D. - Shelling Season

Have a Listen to V.C.D. HERE!


Who is V.C.D.? The name might be unfamiliar with you now, but that's gonna soon change.
Vandross Cox Durrant (real name) was just a fan of grime like most young males of his age, he went to raves, watched Channel U back in the day, bought mixtapes and albums , listen and recited the words of his favourite tunes, and thought nothing of it.

February 2016, V.C.D. went to Eskimo Dance @ O2 Academy Bristol in the front row, reciting and rapping along the words to the songs that were playing , somehow Wiley sees V.C.D. and starts tapping Jammer and points at V.C.D. next thing you know the promoter comes down to V.C.D. and asks if he's knows all the words? to which V.C..D replies "Yes", next thing he's up on stage shelling it down, after he came offstage Wiley spoke to V.C.D. and told him that he got talent.

Chip wanted to know who's the don spraying my bars? everyone points to V.C.D. which resulted with him going back and forth lyrically with Chip on stage, smashes it, they went their separate ways, he thought nothing of it.

Fast forward to bank holiday May 2016, Stormzy is due to perform at Love Saves The Day Festival in Bristol that weekend, somehow footage of V.C.D. gets uploaded to Twitter of V.C.D. performing Stormzy's lyrics with Chip of their song "Hear Dis" to which Stormzy tweets "Are you gonna be at LSTD? come to the front" to which V.C.D. replies "Say No More" to which everyone on V.C.D's Twitter goes nuts. In front of 17,000 people V.C.D. gets invited onstage with Stormzy to perform "Hear Dis" and smashes it with an energetic performance .

The photo for the front cover of the mixtape clearly shows this. Section Boys was filming the set, DJ Russke , Big Narstie, DJ Maximum, Saf One all showed interest. There's a saying "lightening doesn't strike in the same place twice" when they said that they didn't have V.C.D. in mind. V.C.D. also walked out for the legendary boxer Anthony Joshua when he came to Bristol earlier this year, Joshua told V.C.D. face to face "you got mad talent and charisma "

V.C.D. has been spending time honing his craft and stacking up on his tunes, "I wanna learn and be the best version of myself I can be" Bristol hip hop veteran K*ners came and scooped up V.C.D. and signed him to his K-Star production company, with Lekan Latinwo of Intricate Management, and now things are on track to bright future for the career of V.C.D. ,think nothing of it.

Matterz Live: Shaodow – Album Launch @ Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen

Listen to ShaoDow's single 'Accent' ft McLean
Shaodow’s concert at Hoxton last Sunday was dope. Being a part of this was like a rave party in the hip-hop scene, strange to say it like that but it’s the best way to describe the feeling of the night. 
When Shaodow hit the stage, the audience went crazy. The opening was really impressive as he started his performance with some techniques inspired by Kung Fu. For those of you who do not know his story, Shaodow was taught Kung Fu as a teenager in China and the martial art has marked his life. Inspired by Shaolin’s way of life and theories, he tried to introduce all these elements to his performance (giving new perspectives) and many parts of the show referred to these techniques, creating a more sophisticated ambiance. 



Shaodow says that his new album is ‘the culmination of 2 years of hard work, creativity and career progression condensed into audio form and then thrown at you like a Ninja Star.’ So true! He prepared distinctive …

Paris King Matterz Interview

Hi Paris! Thank you for taking the time to talk to us. How are you today?
Im amazing thanks and I'm looking forward to Christmas and having a great time promoting my new track "My Addiction" which is out on January 27th! 
You are about to release your song ‘My Addiction’. How does it feel?
Exciting- in a word! But more than that I just feel really grateful that I am able to share the music and video with everybody. I spent years as a kid dreaming of releasing music and to be actually doing it really is a dream come true! 
Can you tell us a little bit more about the backstory of ‘My Addiction’?
Ofcourse! the track is about addiction to anything. Drugs,sex, alcohol, love, the lot! its more about the emotions that being addicted to something convey instead of a dependence on anything or anyone in particular. It depends on how it resonates with the listener as to what it relates to.
Besides working on your new music are there any hints you can share with us about possible future …
