Emerging as an artist over the past decade, DLR (short for Dirty le Roi) continues today just as he started off – constantly creating new music, experimenting in the studio and developing his sound.

The back catalogue is proof, with releases on Dispatch (home to his first 3 albums), Metalheadz, 31 Recordings, Utopia, Symmetry and C.I.A., plus a handful of quality remixes for artists like Noisia, Camo & Krooked, Hybrid Minds, Spectrasoul, Roni Size, Zero T and Q-Project.

Sofa Sound Bristol is his main home today; the label he started in 2017 has built a loyal following, releasing his collabs with Break, Randall, Ulterior Motive and supporting newer acts like Molecular, Ill Truth and M-zine. Much loved for its distinctive music, art direction and events, the label won Drum&Bass Arena’s ‘Best Newcomer Label’ award in 2020.
