From ravers on the ground to A-list DJ’s in booths and studios, the D+B universe has had one name stuck in their minds, Unglued.
First releasing on the 2017 ‘Hospitality In The Park’ compilation with ‘Ay!’, he swiftly upped the levels with ‘Bootstrap Bill’. It’s decimated dancefloors across the globe with spins from the likes of Andy C, Danny Byrd, Randall and Hospital Records’ label boss London Elektricity, as well as receiving widespread support on the airwaves from Metrik, Noisia, Skankandbass and BBC Radio 1’s Rene LaVice.
The enigmatic Unglued is also the proud owner of 2018’s most sought after dubplate. His bootleg of High Contrast’s anthem, ‘If We Ever’ has had everyone talking, catapulting him straight into the stratosphere of the D+B elite.
Music has always been in Degs’ blood, an accomplished pianist, guitarist and singer with militant flow and a golden voice, spanning eclectic tastes moulded by a musical family.
The portal to the world of drum & bass was opened for Degs after first hearing the sounds of Bad Company and London Elektricity at 15 years old. Six years down the line, he picked up the mic and got on the stage. He swiftly became one of jump up’s best kept secrets, earning himself resident spots at shows across Europe.
Years later, he’s honed his craft and become adept in many styles. With a strong R&B and hip hop influence, his songwriting and MCing soon took a soulful turn proving the adaptability and musical prowess of this accomplished songwriter. Degs draws upon an a broad set of lyrical forms, fusing fast sprays with harmonious singing inspired by the likes of Fats, Eksman and Dynamite. It’s no easy feat to master the dual-craft of rapping and singing, with few MC’s possessing the skills shown by the latest artist to join the Hospital family.
