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.
