Project Mayhem comprise of the lyrical onslaught of Boomstick (born in Inverness and raised in Middlesbrough now Glasgow based) & DJ Leach - aka Versatile- (born and raised in Middlesbrough but is now based in York). Redragon (Spirits of Vengeance) completes the line up on production duties. Redragon himself was born and raised in Orkney but did stints in Dubai and Inverness before settling in Glasgow. DJ Leach who rep's the 118 Soundsystem, Parthian Shot fam has known Boomstick since their early teens in Middlesbrough. Boomstick and Redragon wires crossed in Inverness and have known each other for five years now mashing up tracks and stage shows. Boomstick started writing at age seven and started going to battles at fifteen, this has not stopped since then. With his passion for battles he has lined up and knocked down some of the best and is a true asset to the Drop Zone Records role call. Collectively they have supported the likes of Princess Superstar and shared the stage with established UK Hip Hop artists Killa Kela, Part 2 (New Flesh for Old) and Roots Manuva. Project Mayhem are currently working with various artists and producers nationwide Alpha-Betix (Thirty Tonne Slug Records), Fenna Rhodes and Beatboxer /producer Mowgli and more .DJ Leach is just set to release an EP with his other group 118 Soundsystem called 'Beached' EP on Thirty Tonne Slug Records and will also feature heavily on Parthian Shot's forthcoming release 'Year of the Rooster'. Although Redragon started out in a rock group 'fiasco' he has always had a keen interest in Hip Hop and started emceeing in his late teens. Redragon is a man of many musical tastes and talents which more than stand out in his production. Still an Emcee but now more focussed on his production. Boomstick was reviewed to critical acclaim in Hip Hop Connection's demo section as '.dark witty lyrics with character and conviction delivered over supreme production finished off with razor sharp cuts..' took more than just HHC attention but that deep in the bunkers of Drop Zone Records, a flare was fired, the Enemies ran and Project Mayhem joined the growing ranks of the Drop Zone Records Legion.. Beware the second wave.
