Still working on that hot first release.



DreCey didn't come from nowhere with a style that has been classified as "The next wave Drake might steal" from out of nowhere. The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influence. Growing up in Scarborough, Ontario in what has become known as "The Golden Era" of Hip-Hop, DreCey was heavily influenced by hip-hop culture and artists such as Notorious B.I.G., Ludacris, and DMX. It wasn't until he was 14 that he himself went from being a fan to a songwriter himself. Focusing on lyrics and substance he built his craft to a place where he now has people like DJ Absolut hitting him up on Instagram DM saying " Send me that music! Let's move if your ready" and notable Canadian Hip-Hop blogs, such as What's the Hype, commenting, " This is our first time hearing of DreCey and listen to us when we say go listen to everything he has released so far, its all fire!" 

DreCey has just recently released "Grounded" on his SoundCloud page due to overwhelming fan request and so far the reaction has been similar to most of his songs, amazing and immediate.  Coming of his recent performances at Pyramid Club in Manhattan, New York and The Music Hall in Oshawa, Ontario, DreCey has set himself up with a buzz that travels a long distance. After the New Year's release of "Falling", DreCey has been able to manage contacts with various DJs across the country. He has gained the attention of some very notable Djs including DJ Illegal Alien (Moda, Luxy, Barcode, Former Dj for Drake), DJ Jason Chuck (just ask anyone around Toronto), as well as heavy hitters from NY, DJ Radio (Streetsweepers/Sirius Sattelite) and DJ Absolut. It was DJ Absolut who contacted DreCey personally to give him the oppurtunity to perform in New York after hearing his music and continues to have a working relationship with DreCey providing him with other oppurtunities and event notices.

The poetic lyrics and hypnotizing melodic tones DreCey creates are all centered and based around a troubled past. Losing his father at the age of 22 due to hospital negligence was difficult as he was the eldest and closest to his father in a family that had 2 boys and 3 girls. The next year, his grandfather was murdered while taking a nap on the porch of his house. It was even 2 years later when he lost his cousin to cancer. Experiencing this, mixed with the deaths that came from living in some of the toughest neighbourhoods throughout Scarborough, he had to put a music career to the side in order to take care of his family. But never stopped writing. Over the years, his lyrics went from blunt, fast-paced, no holds barred lyrics which can be heard in tracks like "Lost Soul" on his SoundCloud page to more rhythmic, soulful, deep thinking lyrics which are displayed in songs like "Falling", and "Never Enough". Channeling past experiences and drawing on the painful things he has seen and traumatic experiences he faced, his music became his sole outlet.

Drecey has been working hard so far in 2017 and he has no plans in slowing down. Always looking for ways to make new connections and build genuine and lasting relationships in the industry, DreCey is on a pace to have a huge summer. With upcoming performances already booked, DreCey has a steady set of gigs from May-July at venues such as DCmusic and MOD club. His energy on stage has been described as contagious and he knows how to use his charm to work the ladies. Looking forward, it's clear that motivation is not a lacking attribute in DreCey's ultimate goal: Maintain substance and truth in his music while ultimately leaving a place for himself in hip-hop that is reserved only for the few.
