Undoubtedly one of the hardest working musicians in the industry, Schedules has a track record that dates all the way back to 1995.
The early years centred around his music GCSE qualification where he was one of the first in the country to submit rap music for his coursework! Early brushes with microphone started in 1995 and led to the formation of the Bournemouth hip-hop duo DLS in 1997. The following 2 years saw a local appreciation and respect climb rapidly leading to the first album selling several hundred copies around colleges in the South. Live performances in such hot spots as Bournemouths ‘Great Escape’ and ‘K-bar’ soon followed. Progress continued steadily over the next few years building up a solid foundation of fans, regular club spots and churning out mix tapes bi-monthly.
The progress was halted in 2002 when Schedules choose to move to New Zealand and took a step back from music to dabble in television work.
Refreshed and re-energised, Schedules returned to England in 2004 and quickly picked up where he left of. Now a solo force, he has now added production to his list of talents and is currently one of the hottest producers on myspace with artists all over the South of England clambering for his hot tracks.
Schedules continues to rap himself. He is one the few artists able to deliver a complete album all of his own work, from production through to mixing through to rapping and even the artwork!
Schedules continuously pushes the boundaries of hip hop music and has a unique talent for merging music from all different genres. His lyrics are always layered with meaning and he never misses the chance to pass on some education whilst still delivering a hot song – a skill many hip hop artist’s have failed to achieve.
2007 has been a good year for Schedules. Performances already include spots at up and coming Portsmouth hip hop night ‘South Coast Statements’ and is also working on many other live and studio appearances with other local artists of recognition such as Estee and The IRS. It is a fair bet that if you venture into any live hip hop night in the south of England you cant help but find an artist performing over one of Schedules’ beats!.
Always one to give back – Schedules spent the early part of 2007 involved in a Red Cross initiative called Hip Hop 4 Humanity where he visited local youth centres and encouraged young children to use rap as a positive tool and use the opportunity that your lyrics present you with to discuss issues of conflict and how to stay positive.
2007 has also brought about Schedules’ first major Radio air time with songs being played on local stations plus a guest appearance on Jay Rachets Fire FM 107.6 hip ho show where he tore it down with freestyles, and exclusive tracks.
The only way is forward and Schedules is looking for any alliances – record companies or otherwise – that may be able to offer him the opportunity to take his talent to the next level.
