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 to touring the world and recording the acclaimed Moving In The Dark; on the way collaborating with artists as diverse as Kate Tempest, Jam Baxter and Eliza Carthy in his explorations of the crossover between hiphop, folk, bass music and all inbetween…

Dizraeli most recently released his solo masterpiece The Unmaster, which was 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. With tales of madness and collapse, struggle and redemption all told with searing honesty, surreal humour and a soundtrack unlike anything you’ve heard, this is a night not to be missed. A fiercely beautiful hybrid of hip-hop, folk and grime, it is music to make sense of an insane world. The explosive new live band features musical direction from Kwake (Sampha, Kate Tempest), keys and samples from Joseph Costi (Bahla), drums from Ben Brown (Alfa Mist), vocals and vibraphone from Hannah Davis plus Dizraeli on vocals and guitars. Every show is a journey, from intensely heartfelt to all-out rave.
