One half of the rap duo DJ YESS & D CRIME
DJ YESS & D CRIME first started out break dancing and body popping in the early years of hip hop music with local break dance crews, but soon took to DJ’ing and Emceeing. In the late 1980’s along with a few friends they formed a group called THE MASTERPLAN a ten man crew which consisted of DJ’s and MC’s. In the early 1990’s D-CRIME along with DJ YESS also of the The Masterplan crew decided to record music together and were signed to RUFF JUSTICE RECORDS a local record label owed by drum and bass dj/producer DJ SS. D-CRIME & DJ YESS released various tracks through the Ruff Justice Label such as!
TIME FOR ACTION (1992)
NOTHING'S GONNA STOP THE PLAN (1993)
KEEP IT UNDERGROUND (1995)
The first single on RUFF JUSTICE RECORDS was ‘Time for Action’ which had a huge impact on the hip hop music scene at the time, being played on BBC Radio 1 by Tim Westwood, DJ Shorty Blitz on KISS FM London and various radio stations up and down the country. The video for ‘Time for Action came second place on BBC 2’s DANCE ENERGY show hosted by Normski. D-CRIME & DJ YESS went on to perform live shows alongside such acts as TIM DOG of (Ultramagnetic MC’s) and LONDON POSSE.
Still active in today’s modern music scene DJ YESS still continues produce and D-CRIME is back on the microphone in the studio releasing new material, expect to hear big things from these two talented artists once again in 2014.
