Dirty Dike is an all-talking, all-breathing, fully-functioning rap FIEND.
Catch him on a peaceful one and he will most likely be sucking on king prawns in the moonlight and throwing their discarded pink tails to Cretian street hounds. Catch him on a mental one and he will be seventeen quaddy voddys deep slurring freestyles in a pair of rusty Pelle Pelle boxers and an odd pair of his girlfriends socks to Cambridge University students…
It really is all or nothing when it comes to the one they call Mr Dikestar; he never has been one for half measures in either his booze drink selection or music making. In an age where everyone thinks they can rap, Dike’s dedication to this thing called hip hop is as driven and focussed as you will ever see from anyone daring to call themselves a lyricist.
Either spouting the type of filth that is completely unimaginable to the average human brain or confronting the life demons that have made him the person he is today, Dirty Dike has galvanised a significant following across the globe with the diverse seesawing he cultivates between these two distinct, yet equally potent sides to his music making. It is this inspired marrying between the two aforementioned sides that has made his music so in-demand and celebrated. Both sides of Dike shine on each and every album he has ever championed and the power struggle between the two continues to flourish in all his future album plans.
* EDWARD SCISSORTOUNGUE
Edward Scissortongue has only two aims as a musician; one, to have fun and two, to play with the visions, patterns, words, ideas, themes and arrangements that dominate his thoughts each and every single day of his strange life. It is both as simple and as complex as that.
The human brain is the most complex object in the galaxy and Edward Scissortongue’s music represents his battle with the pictures behind his eyeballs. That is all it is and all it ever will be.
Edward Scissortongue’s 2012 High Focus Records debut ‘Better. Luck. Next. Life’, entirely produced by avant garde music maestro Lamplighter, provides the perfect introduction to Scissortongue’s weird and wonderfully dark world. With unparalleled writing ability, this album takes you on a journey like no other, stimulating both the ears and the images behind one’s eyeballs to great effect.
