Poet, producer, Firestarter, songwriter/MC, multi-instrumentalist and raconteur Dizraeli initially gained a frenzied underground fan base fronting the raucous outfit Bad Science, before abandoning that to tour the world, release acclaimed LPs like 2013’s chameleonic Moving In The Dark, collaborate with the likes of Jam Baxter and Kae Tempest, and pick up an Album of The Year nomination from tastemaker Gilles Peterson for 2019’s The Unmaster along the way.

To say he’s been on one hell of a journey is quite the understatement, propelled by his sheer passion for the form and his hunger to defiantly experiment and cross the boundaries of genre every step of the way.

At his show at Cobalt Studios on Friday 1st July he’ll have quite the act to follow, with local stalwart auteurs SQUARMS supporting. Having made a strong impression with a string of singular offerings, including the unforgettable stomp of What You Doin’ Here? and Could Do, the duo have steadfastly earned a name for themselves with their wholly ground-breaking approach to pushing the absolute boundaries of genre, sound and song, making for a brutal juggernaut on the live stage, and the ideal complement to Dizraeli’s singular sounds.

Dizraeli and SQUARMS play Cobalt Studios, Newcastle on Friday 1st July.
