hi there - My little brother has been working really hard over the past year trying to get a record deal. At the moment he's climbing the chart ladder over at the source. If you are in the UK and like his track PLEASE please vote for him !
He writes his own tracks - sings his own music , and needs help from hubbers.
This video was recorded in Stockport (Manchester)

If you'd like to join his fanclub please add him to face book Mark Dowling (DBO)
Thanks so much it means a lot.
I'll vote for him, because he is your brother, but it does annoy me when British people completely drop their natural accent and rap like a cross between an British-Jamaican from London and Tupac. So many rappers do this, and seldom will they become successful until they drop the obvious influences. A good example being Lowkey, who rapped for years in an American style before dropping this and just being himself.... a British Asian from London... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4OI0GUCI_A
I don't want that to sound too critical, he is a good lyricist, but he is from Stockport. Where is the references to his hometown, or his accent, it just makes him sound like his is trying to be somebody else instead of himself. Are people from Stockport/Manchester ashamed of their accent? And is there REALLY a problem with racism against white people in Stockport? Or any of Northern England? Really?
I want to hear about Stockport, Manchester, England, thats what the British scene is all about right now http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGIMpmOTAVo
And is he aware that there is already a rapper and producer named D-Bo? Thats a little like me starting a trainer business and calling it Nike. Will vote anyway, but can't really support him.....
Hi Ryan- DBO is a nickname given to him at school ! The Stockport accent is still there ?!!
He has filmed the video locally , and is very proud of his home town , having released 2 albums with lyrics about Stockport in there
He doesn't want to sound like anyone other than himself - and if you were to sit down and talk to him - it would be the same accent that he uses in his rap video !
He's 100% him.
I can see your point though , but you would really have to sit down and talk to him to know who he is , and what he's about
Thanks for the vote though.
On another note - any one that does vote has to register it literally takes seconds an email - name and password . That's it , no long extensive form to fill out.
Thanks every one !
sounds like a scam to me! Why the need to supply contact information? And will this info be sold on to unscrupulous junk mailers?
Sorry to be negative but Rap is on its way out.
Still wish your brother the best because he's having a go.
Your little brother makes a great sound - really enjoyed listening. Have voted.
te reason for the registering of emails is so that votes can be restricted. In X-Factor or Big Brother an individual can ring up and vote as many times as they want. In this competition each individual is allowed to vote only once for a given track. this prevents the over repetitious vote cheating that has gone on in otyher competitions.
just to add.......these lyrics and tracks are all the lads own work, 100% genuine. And as for his accent...it is definitely Stopfordian as the people from Stockport are known.
See his other videos and tracks on youtube...
