Dr. G is a talented producer from Manchester who is possibly one of the UK’s most unsung heroes making beats for English, American & Eastern European hip-hop artists from underground, old school, new school, independent artists and some major artists respectively. Starting out as a DJ back in 1993, he became involved in the organising of events with the Sony Music Street Team and became an official Def Jam Records Street Team Rep promoting numerous events at the Manchester M.E.N with Lauran Hill, Destiny’s Child and Dead Prez. This position allowed him to enter a large celebrity circle meeting some of the industry greats in the form of Eminem, Destiny’s Child, TQ, Common Sense, Xzibit, Wu Tang, Saigon and Mohamed Ali.
Spending countless days in the studio he soon realised that is was the creation of music he enjoyed most, and spent most of his time working on mixtapes for local acts & artists such as Shotty Horror, Rokket, Meany, Omen RA, Hoodman (Tyler Daley) and HiJack Hood. In 2007 Dr. G released ‘Above The Systematic Matrix’ under Revolutionary Records featuring many of UK and US artists, which was then followed in 2008 by his debut solo and self-produced album ‘Last Dayz’ featuring Shyheim, finally giving him a starting point. As his sound grew he produced tracks for New York underground legends St. Laz and Opium, which led to him getting recognition from DJ Kay Slay on New York’s Hot 97 many times, as well as other mixtape deejays, radio stations and leading worldwide blogs.
Dr. G soon started gaining notoriety with other stateside artists such as Shabazz The Disciple, Agallah Don Bishop, Chuck Burns, Rap P and more recently being involved with Hell Razah and his Ghetto Government Movement project, producing most of his album which will be due out early 2014. Additionally he has also been working with Inspectah Deck and Fes Taylor, as well as Southern artist Champ Rushmore, Poe Mack, and Crafsmen from V.A. and Diem, Ghost Dog (1100 Hunters), Chox (Chose) Mac and Joose Jones III from N.C. respectively.
Now as we gear up for Dr. G Presents ‘The Coalition’ due out mid February 2014, a compilation album which features St. Laz, Virgil Kent, Scottie Flippen, Chox (chose) Mac, Poe Mack, Crafsmen, Ghost Dog, Rap P, Stockmashin’, Born Ready, Big Sono, Twisted Insane, Fatal Hussein, Young Noble, Yukmouth, Outlaws, Hell Razah, Inspectah Deck and more, we get this exclusive visual so you can get to know the name. Dr. G… a man with the beats on lock!

Drug Corpse sees IMS teaming up with new vocal collaborators such as; Cappo, Geebag, TPS FAM, More1, Cor Stadik, Deeflux & Efeks, as well as collaborations with long-time associates Joey Menza, Theme, Oliver Sudden and more. All chosen for their individuality style and incredible artistic abilities.
Musically gritty, bleak and stripped down to the bare bones. The signature sound of IMS is evident throughout this recording, hard drums fire out from the MPC, disturbing analogue soundbites and soulful voice snatches cut in and out. Bass lines twist and roll underneath while the crackle of old vinyl cuts thru the mix from start to finish. Pushing the sonic boundaries IMS give you their unique style. Originality being the key in every track while giving a nod to the architects of that golden era Hip Hop sound.
Drug Corpse is available as a bundle pack of formats. The pack includes a Jewel case CD, a 74 Min Tape Cassette and a Starch Records medical prescription – this prescription includes a download code to acquire the album in high quality MP3 format.
