Creating a one of a kind landmark in UK Hip-Hop album history, Funky DL is set to release his 20th studio album aptly titled "Twenty".

The album showcases DL's mastery of Hip-Hop, by incorporating Boom-Bap, Trap, Neo-Soul/R&B and Latin with variations from Samples to Live Instruments throughout the long player set.

From silky smooth to rough and rugged, cheerful to melancholy, the production across the album is impeccably pristine, evidencing DL's vast abilities as a versatile Producer and MC.

"Twenty" also features a slew of talented British Artists, showcasing performances from vocalists Stee Moglie and Cicero, as well as rap performances from Abioseh, Songer, Teddy Reiss and El-Emcee.

Live instrumentation contributions are also included from the Jazz Funk Artist Xantoné Blacq, Guitarist Ed Riches and Bassist Sean Allen.

Twenty is a celebratory album evidencing Funky DL's discernible contribution to Hip-Hop music spanning over 20 years.
