Derty Sesh is New Zealand Hiphop’s brightest new star. Not only does the young rhyme protégé rap with ferocity and extensive wordplay akin to his contemporary heavy weights, he also produces his own beats, has a great work ethic, and produced his own debut album, right through to the artwork. This, combined with his signing to MTC makes him local Hiphop’s most exciting new talent.
His debut self-produced horror themed album ‘Sic Love’, which will be released through MTC/Universal in March/April has been described as “A Hiphop Rock Opera Show”
A product of central Auckland, Derty Sesh has experienced the sights, sounds, up’s and downs, tragedies and turmoil’s that come with life in New Zealand’s largest city and his often melancholic songs show his unique perspective on music and life in general.
Aligning himself with Auckland’s most driven record label - MTC - seemed a natural progression for the young artist. The signing has enabled Derty Sesh to hone his craft surrounded by today’s biggest players in the local Hiphop scene.
Derty Sesh’s debut single “Really Don’t Care”, and the Remix (featuring fellow MTC wordsmith alumni Young Sid and Ethical) has been blazing radio and causing a wave of controversy and praise throughout the national Hiphop community. His brazen attitude and lyrical conviction have seen him rise from relative obscurity to center stage virtually over night.
Already a seasoned performer, Desty Sesh has seen the length and breadth of the country with Smashproof, performing to a variety of audiences in a myriad of age groups garnering great exposure and response from his songs.
Armed with an arsenal of new inspiration and opportunities coupled with his self-produced album ‘Sic Love’, another album is already in production with the guidance of Kirk Harding.
Derty Sesh is sure to make himself heard in 2010.
