The other half of DPBD is Da Poet who is one of the most successful and productive MCs in Turkey. He is a producer, beatmaker and a rapper. After releasing multiple albums and collaborations he and Barış Demirel got together and started the DPBD project which flows between rap, hip hop, funk, lo-fi and dub. This unique collaboration between a rapper and a trumpet player is one tasteful musical event!
