About the Artists


The Leeds rap scene is quickly burgeoning and it’s artists like Temz at the forefront of this movement. Delivering hard-hitting, defiant lyrics combined with his bold, addictive hooks Temz epitomises the level of talent hidden in the UK’s often forgotten rap scene up North.

The Congolese MC has always had a keen, excitable interest in music, curating bars from the space of his bedroom and with peers in and outside of school. Renowned for his crude Leeds accent and raw, authentic lyrics, Temz was voted “Best Upcoming Artist” at the Yorkshire Entertainment Awards & has since received cosigns from the likes of Tinie Tempah founded record label, Disturbing London and has been quoted by Link Up TV as a ‘Pillar of the rap scene up North’.





DJ MJ is an upcoming Urban DJ based in the UK (Midlands).

From the first time he touched a pair of deck’s at the age of 15 he has been honing his skills since. Born in 1996 and securing his first large scale private bookings at the age of 16 and securing a club residency in his local city at the young age of 17. His first and current job has never changed… DJ 

Although mainly specialising in the RnB and Hip Hop scene, MJ has shown that his unique fast yet smooth mixes and tight transitions are the way forward in order to keep the crowd hyped all night, but don’t be mistaken into thinking he only succeeds in one genre! MJ has proved time in and time out that he is more than capable of performing to a high standard across all genres he chooses to attack! From House all the way to Bashment his blends and cuts class him as "A true urban all-rounder!' 

Currently working on expanding his fanbase he has amassed a following of 100k across his social accounts & has worked closely with artists such as JAY1, KSI, & S1MBA just to name a few. 

You’ll find MJ at the centre of many parties in the country & abroad ensuring every night he’s performing at is a night to remember.

“Young with the skills of a veteran, one to watch for the future”

Spender is a growing emcee from Coventry of Congolese origins. Since the latter part of 2020, he's been bringing his lifelong passion for music to the next stage with back-to-back releases of story-telling skill, thought-provoking bars, and overall artistry of the highest calibre.

It all began several years ago with studio sessions as a 14-year-old, honing his craft and stockpiling a range of unreleased songs in a variety of styles.

Since then, Spender has maintained a steady pace with the release of “Wiley”, which demonstrates his lyrical talent over a melodic tempo, allowing his wordplay to take centre stage.

Hot on the heels of "Wiley", Spender, 21, recently debuted his brand new single "Errands" on the Link Up TV platform. Rapidly accumulating views, this track is overflowing with undeniable energy,  Spender layering cold bars and fire-ball adlibs throughout.

He is narrating his journey. The victories and defeats. Possessing self-confidence and a do-it-yourself attitude.



Rapper who goes by the name Reckz, from South East London.

Reckz started rapping in 2013 on RapCityTV and racked up over 100K views over 3 videos before the channel was hacked and deleted.

He just loved music in general and his friends told him to go to the studio and start producing his own songs. He's been working on this for a number of years, with his passion and experience growing he feels he has improved massively in different areas of production.

Now is his time. He knows he has what it takes to make it big in the music industry. His catchy, relatable music appeals to older and younger generations, feeling inspired by this Dammz is keen to ensure he, along with others of his generation has an opportunity to make it in the industry, as they shape their future. But this requires the right people, the right talent and the right time. Dammz recognises he is lucky for all he has achieved to date and for the team around him. 

A local Coventrian, Dammz brings an upbeat 'hard to get out of your head' style. His local connections have formed a tight-knit community where everyone knows one another and support each other. 

Influences include Fetty Wap, for his ability to switch it up between rap and singing along with Lil Baby, whose roots and history are an inspiration for Dammz.
