It's interesting that a lot today's listeners would be familiar with Dizzee Rascal for Dance Wiv Me, the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony and his constant touring on the international festival circuit. Rascal - aka Dylan Mills - has come a long way from his 2003 debut album Boy In Da Corner, written and recorded while in his teens and released to a wave of critical and commercial success. Many regard it as a landmark, if not definitive, album to be born out of the then-embroynic grime scene, a genre now reaching new heights with artists like Stormzy, who is effusive in his praise for Rascal.
Dizzee's early material and current success merge in this Saturday's concert at east London's Copper Box Arena. Hosted by Red Bull Music Academy, Rascal is to perform Boy In Da Corner in full, as he did previously this year in New York. It's a homecoming show for the Bow-born musician and we're excited to see him channel the energy, lyricism and heaviness of his initial work.
