For some, music is entertainment. For others, it is self-expression. This is definitely the way of the Stash Sounds Project, led by talented rapper D.R.E.W. (Dope Rhymes Echo Worldwide).
Ever since the early 80s, D.R.E.W. has been a huge fan of hip hop, its creative vision and untamable energy. It did not take long before he would fully immerse himself into the local hip hop culture and beyond. Eventually, he started out rapping the year the English Pound Note ceased to be legal tender, 1988, and debuted with a brand new track in 1990, produced by Mac McRaw and recorded at Monroe Studios in Islington, London.
D.R.E.W. later performed with rap group “35 Above”, garnering attention and respect throughout the UK’s underground hip hop movement and even performing some of the most notable venues in London, from Subterranea, to Bloomsbury Theatre and The Fridge (now Electric Brixton), just to mention a few. The group’s success extended outside the national boarders, as they managed to appear on various international radio and TV media, as well as stretching their reach overseas with a stunning performance at the legendary Apollo Theatre in NYC.
Nowadays, D.R.E.W. is pursuing his solo project and his vision is simple: making pure, unadulterated hip hop with a classic tone…and a lot to say!
