Poet in da Corner The Album Artwork and Track Released

Published on Fri 17 Jan 2020

Poet in da Corner the album will be released on 31 January 2020 on Accidental Records in partnership with Royal Court Theatre.

The stage show premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2018 to sell out crowds and critical acclaim in a production directed by Ola Ince.

Whilst the album is made up from songs from the stage show it is more than simply a soundtrack release, with the tracks having been re-edited by producer Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante and mastered to produce an album that very much stands in its own right as one of the most compelling grime records of today.


The release will be made available as a limited edition USB keychain as well as across all streaming and download stores.

 Listen to  “Hear The Bang, See The Spark” here.

Poet in da Corner is written and performed by Debris Stevenson feat. Jammz and directed by Royal Court Associate Director Ola Ince. It features music and composition from Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante, co-founder and co-artistic director of Boy Blue with design by Jacob Hughes, lighting by Anna Watson, sound by Tony Gayle and choreography by Aaron Sillis.
