Dizzee Rascal Australian Tour 8

Dizzee Rascal Australian Tour

Date: January 13 2008

By: Sneaker Freaker



Only three albums and 21 years old, DIZZEE RASCAL’s equation is complex and compelling: hip hop + grime + ragga + rock + electro + garage + found sounds + whatever-fires-his-imagination = DIZZEE. Or maybe the sum reads more like: distinctive vocalist + rapid-fire MC + old school rapper + thought-provoking lyricist + funny guy + razor-sharp tongue + ragga toaster = DIZZEE.

Whichever way you add it up, the math is sound. DIZZEE RASCAL, the kid who won the Mercury Music Prize with his debut album, 2003’s Boy in Da Corner, is now leading the pack with his third long-player, Maths + English. Although Maths + English was born of lofty ideals, its ultimate mission is to move you. “It started out with a lot of more reflective tunes about how sad shit is and what a fucked up world we live in,” says DIZZEE. “But then I started listening to old OutKast stuff, Young Jeezy, Dem Franchise Boyz, that whole Atlanta snap thing – and it got me back into the mould of that jump up party shit. So I wanted to make banging tunes – tunes that people can bump to and be ignorant to.”


Luckily for those of you that cannot attend the Big Day Out where Dizzee will be touring all over Australia with his original blend of grimey gully beats and rhymes, the good git will be doing a host of side shows in Bryon Bay, Sydney and Melbourne (check the flyer above for dates and ticket info). Even more fortunate is that Sneaker Freaker has 2 Dizzee Rascal Packs to give away to two lucky readers who reside in Sidders or Meltown. Check below for competition details!!!
