Dirtee Rotten Scoundrelz

Dirtee Rotten Scoundrelz (Wrexham’s one and only hip-hop group) have earned themselves a slot at an unsigned competition called ‘Live and Unsigned’ in Salford, Manchester on 22nd February. They have 2 minutes to impress the judges at the national competition which is being filmed for ITV.

The DRS crew have been playing in the area for about 4 years and the line-up has been through some changes over time but today they are; Sir Elf Boy – rapper, Tony Star – rapper, Funk MC – rapper and Deep C who is their scratch DJ and beat juggler. They’ve shared the stage with some big names as well; Kasabian, Goldie Lookin’ Chain and The Parkinson’s to name a few.

The winner of The ‘Live and Unsigned‘ competition will receive a recording contract and single release. The 2007 winners, B-Kay & Kazz, made it into the UK national charts with their single ‘You know it’s right’, which made the top 30.

The band will be playing the Prohibition bar in Wrexham this Saturday from 8:30pm, where they will be giving away some free CDs and other merchandise.
