The duo draw in equal measure from their Southeast Asian heritage and their Urban Canadian identity. Since 2013 they have become a key player in the Saskatchewan hip-hop scene. Working on building their community rather than tearing others down, there’s a positivity to their sound that is infectious, and spreads way beyond the hip hop community.

The slick "Zone" might recall the textured productions of Drake and The Weeknd at times but there's a confidence and swagger that's all their own and the track has infectious lyrical hooks to spare.

DGS Samurai Champs play the Green Door Store in Brighton on Friday 19 May at 4pm and Shoosh in Brighton Saturday 20 May at 8.30pm as part of The Great Escape festival.
