Born Derek Amoah Asare , he is known in showbiz as Drvmroll and is a tema based music producer.
Drvmroll was initially a beat-making duo that started out early 2010 but disbanded 2 years later. One member however decided to carry the mantle, as he believes he can propagate the name and initial dream into reality.
Genres: Afro pop, Hip Hop, R&B, EDM
Drvmroll Completed senior high education at Labone Senior High and is currently a final year Graphic Design student at Radford University College and hence comes as no surprise that he branded Drvmroll himself.
He was initiated into producing mainly for himself & crew of budding artists/poets/writers including “The Khidz Next Door” and Haywaya – currently recognized as the “Hausa Rap God”, signed under One Nation Entertainment (Efya’s management label) being a co-member.

- 2015 – Drvmroll surprised skeptics by producing EL ‘s “King without a Crown” and “All Black” featuring Joey B and Pappy Kojo on E.L’s BAR2 mixtape. Both records made it as singles & were accompanied by videos with Drvmroll himself making an appearance in the visual of “King Without a crown”.

I am not just a hip hop beat maker/producer. Even as an artiste I am no fan of limiting myself to a specific genre. Certain factors are slowing my work pace; my life as a student & running into a system malfunction not long ago losing a handful of projects but I am going to catch on and do this all day. I plan to work with everyone who wants to make good music.
Drvmroll is currently aiding certain exceptional talents and plans introducing them to the industry in due time.
