Rhyme Asylum

Rhyme Asylum are a Hip-Hop group hailing from London, United Kingdom comprising of music artists: Possessed, Psiklone & Skirmish. ‘RA’ are focused on bringing back classic “boom bap” Hip-Hop, accompanied by thought provoking, vivid lyricism. Originating from the infamous Deal Real open mic sessions between 2004 and 2005 (but initially formed by Possessed and Skirmish in 2002), Rhyme Asylum’s music rippled through the Hip-Hop community; both in their native country and internationally with equal distinction.

Back in 2004, 22 year old Derek Safo (aka Sway) devised a master plan for success in setting up his own totally self-run label, Dcypha Productions, as the outlet for his initial trilogy of releases; This Is My Promo, Volume 1, This Is My Promo, Volume 2, and This Is My Demo. The aim of this initial hat-trick of records was to express and establish himself as an artist independently without the help of a label.

Blade

1. Born in the Armenian quarter of Iran, Blade came to London aged 7. Within months of arriving, he felt the effect of the Islamic revolution back home. Unable to send money out of the country, Blade’s family could no longer support him. So, with no money, no family, alone in a strange country, Blade’s self-reliance and determination were all he had to see him through. The microphone, the studio and the stage provided his only release.
