Listen to the new track by Driis, “Private Garden”, off the upcoming EP High Class Problems Vol 1.

Driis – Private Garden (Produced by 9th Wonder)

Driis, the musical alter ego of Hackney-born entertainer Idris Elba has been carving out a name in music for years, producing, performing and DJing while honing his craft. The uplifting 5-track EP, High Class Problems Vol 1, includes the popular Pete Rock-produced single “Please Be True,” leaked track “Best I Can” as well as new material, preparing music fans for the hotly anticipated album due in late 2010 on Hevlar Recordings.

2010 is set to be another huge year for Idris, who made his name starring as the infamous Stringer Bell in HBO’s The Wire. Not only will he be starring in major blockbusters including Takers, The Losers, and his feature Legacy (in which he is also the executive producer), but Driis will also be performing at a series of lives dates across the UK, Europe and the US, as well as several DJ guest spots.

    Great Job Idris! It’s so nice to see brothas and sistas working on something in which they are passionate about. It’s nice to know that your music has substance and meaning. Those are two factors that we are pretty much missing in these times. Such a refreshing vibe! I will definitely support:-)! I’ve been wondering why you haven’t been tweeting lately and now I see why….Keep up the good work…God Bless!

    I really like it Driis! ;0) I like your style, it’s different. Great “sit back relax and listen to” music when everything around you has hit the fan and you just need time to chill. ;0)

    Very cool song….
    Speaking of which, have you heard Sade’s new single?
    Absolutely amazing! I’ve missed her…10 years was so
    long, but worth the wait. Now I’m justing waiting on you two
    to collaborate. Now that would really be cool!
