Boomkat Product Review:
Hotly tipped beatmaker Dizz1 presents a debut package of truly overweight boom-bap business! The '3rd Time lucky' EP sits in highly respectable company next to the likes of Dorian Concept and Aardvarck on the Nod Navigators imprint, building five tracks of stylish future-beats to give Mark Pritchard a close run for his money. Operating in a field overgrown with slouchy neck snappers, Dizz1 makes his mark with proper gangsta leaning slo-beats and an expressive attention to detail that quite easily brings his productions up to scratch next to the most recent Harmonic 313 album. 'Frazzled' works a slappy krunk beat with star-bursting synth stabs while the sparse bass bumps and 8-bit motifs of 'Somewhat?' recall a screwed Hudson Mohawke or Samiyam and 'Here We Go Again' lifts the snarling synthline excess of Dubtp rave and remoulds it for a smoky, neon-green hiphop vibe. Big name players like Benji B and Sa-Ra have been giving this EP a lot of respect of late and it's very easy to hear why. Highly Recommended!
