The Delegates of Rhyme return with their long awaited single "Stresses & Definitions". Featuring Seraphym aka Dina Deez, an incredible lyricist from Birmingham, Stresses tells the story of different three characters from different perspectives. Offering an insight into modern day living and the perception of women within music, the vocals work alongside a soundscape from Vice, the production arm of The Delegates of Rhyme, offering a golden era-esque feel giving the track depth and character.
To complete the vibe, Joe Bird of Rap-Torial creates an intricate tapestry of cuts to weave together the three verses, adding context to lyrics. Joe's constant input in The Delegates Of Rhyme includes cuts, remixing and even recording certain elements of the forthcoming project.
With The Delegates of Rhyme already receiving support from the like of BBC Introducing, Disorda, DJ Shorty, Carasel (Ambush The Airwaves), A Gee (Itch FM) and many more, the duo are rapidly garnering attention and support from the UK and beyond.
"Stresses and Definitions" is the second full release from The Delegates Of Rhyme's forthcoming debut album entitled "Assemblage" coming mid 2014. As with their music, the group take an alternative approach to visuals, and as opposed to going for a standard music video they have created a stripped down, sombre yet beautiful sunset visual, that allows for Donnie's words to be really heard. Filmed and edited by Vice, and shot in Bristol during a two day recording session, the video offers a moment of contemplation.
The track is released on 11th January 2014 as a free download, and the remixes will be launched one week after (18th). The track will be available from:
