Poet, producer, firestarter. Songwriter-MC, multi-instrumentalist-raconteur… Dizraeli is a genre of his own. From building a frenzied underground following with his first band Bad Science (1999-2008), through to his debut solo album Engurland (City Shanties) dropping in 2009 and then on to tour the world and record the acclaimed Moving In The Dark with Dizraeli and The Small Gods, on the way collaborating with artists as diverse as Kae Tempest, Jam Baxter and Eliza Carthy in his explorations of the crossover between hiphop, folk, bass music and all between…and most recently releasing his solo masterpiece The Unmaster, nominated for Album of the Year by Gilles Peterson in the 2020 Worldwide Awards… Diz has always forged his own way.
His unswerving devotion to pushing the boundaries of lyricism and musical form has earned him a bona fide cult status among those who know, and the raw honesty and humour he brings to his writings on his own mental health, sexuality and the liberation of the human spirit has drawn people together of all shades and ages around his work.
