Well known for his sonic experimentations and unique approach to music making, rapper and multi-instrumentalist Dizraeli will be making the Ouseburn Valley’s Cobalt Studios his home for a week of distilled exploration into new ways of creating.

The famously open and friendly folk at Cobalt are always keen to facilitate unique collaborations and interesting ways of exploring creativity, and after the artist performed at the venue last year it was clear they made a great partnership. For a week before Dizraeli’s performance on Friday 10th March, the venue will be home to him and three stellar musicians – drummer Ben Brown, synth player Joseph Costi and bassist Joe Downard – as they work on music for a brand new project entitled Part God Part Lion, which Dizraeli describes as “samurais sword fighting in the aftermath of hip-hop in an explosion of synthesisers and cinematic joy.”

The musicians promise that the music they create will be hot off the press and unlike anything else you may have heard – describing it as “rebel music for broken times” – which will no doubt continue the artist’s exploration of hip-hop traditions with eclectic, and often folk-inspired, influences which dazzle with surreal humour and tales of struggle and redemption.

Dizraeli: Part God Part Lion is at Cobalt Studios, Newcastle on Friday 10th March.
