Dizzee Rascal announces ‘Raskit’ album with brand new track
Written by worlddancefm on 19th June 2017
Dizzee Rascal is set to release his first album in four years. He announced the new ‘Raskit’ LPwith ‘Space’, a track indicating a return to the original sound of the Bow-born grime artist.
Dizzee teased a video entitled ‘727548’, which spells out ‘Raskit’ when typed in on an old phone. In the video the MC writes out a 16-song tracklist by hand while snippets of what are presumably tracks from the album play in the background.
The press release describes the album as “a spiralling sub-bass vortex of introspective jeep-beats which takes the man Jeremy Paxman called Mr Rascal right back to his roots, but with a hip-hop twist Jay-Z or E40 would be proud of.”
Last year, Dizzee said he was working on a “very loud” new album that he claimed would be departure from his more recent pop-orientated albums. ‘Raskit’ is set for release on July 21 via Dizzee’s own Dirtee Stank Recordings and is available for pre-order now.
‘Space’ is available to stream and download now. Listen and see the tracklist below.
