Kingsley Obeng aka Kingz is a Germany-based MC and producer. He lived in England from 1982 to 1996 witnessing the early rise of Drum & Bass as we know it. His first production was with Nico from No U Turn Records in 1995. 

This encouraged him to buy his own sampler to produce himself. Numerous productions and MCing with Basswerk until 2002 followed. 

He took a long break afterwards but reunited with The Green Man (TGM) (label manager of Basswerk) for a collaboration in 2016. This was followed by their album ‘Changes’ in 2019. ‘Your Special‘ is the MC’s second appearance on Deegree after his recent joint with DJ Basic and Nusonix called ‘Dreams‘.

Deegree Recordings is a Drum & Bass label, event, and radio show host founded by five ambitious DJ’s and producers. Founding members are DJ Basic, MendaxMarvel Cinema, Matt View and Philo

Philo hosts the Deegree Recordings Show on jungletrain.net and DJ Basic the dedicated monthly show on 674fm, a Cologne-based radio station. The label recently celebrated its first year with an various artists compilation called ‘1 Year Deegree Recordings‘ filled with music by founders and friends. 

‘Your Special‘ is a pushing, swiftly pinching tune greatly supported by social criticism brought to you by yours truly, Kingz. Effect-laden synth riffs are riding an indeed rolling bassline to eternity.
