iTunes Editors' Notes

The bastard child of at least a dozen musical genres, among them garage, two-step, drum and bass, hip-hop and ragga, the wildly confrontational UK genre known as grime has always suffered from something of an identity crisis. Yet if any performer seems capable of expanding grime’s audience beyond a small but fanatical core of UK-bound devotees it's the twenty-two year old prodigy Dizzee Rascal, whose first two albums caused a minor sensation amongst the American musical cognoscenti. The streamlined Maths + English is undoubtedly Dizzee’s most focused and accessible work to date. As always, Dizzee’s razor sharp flow impressively fuses serpentine Jamaican patois with mangled US slang and a compellingly gruff sensibility, but it is the production work that sets Maths + English apart from its more geographically insular predecessors. Dizzee seems to be making a conscious effort to move beyond grime’s sonic template with the southern-fried groove of “Real G’s” and the frantic, break-beat strewn classicism of “Pussyole”. On Maths + English the multi-talented Dizzee rascal proves himself capable of working in a multitude of styles; lets hope that the listening public is as open minded as Dizzee has proven himself to be with this release.

Customer Reviews

Dizzee's been busy

Loads of the usual offbeat beauty's, touch of Drum n Bass, and a sprinkling of reggae. Was good on first listen, was even better on second listen. Highly recommend this album. Quality production, quality lyrics. Need I say any more...

DEPHO BACK

its sick! defo buy it! dizzee is defo back

Maths is the beats English is the lyrics

I have been a massive fan of Dizzee Rascal since his first album 'Boy in the corner' and I think he brings something different to the table, obviously it is not everyones taste and these people feel they have to express their thoughts about albums they don't even like, when it fact it is not the album they dislike but what he stands for. The album itself is a great peice of work, not many artists can rhyme as well as Mr Mills does with his extensive word bank to call upon from track to track. Some tracks stand out more than others for example 'Flex' which would be a quality club sound and 'Wanna Be' which demonstrates his ability to work on different levels. One thing I can say about this album is that every track is different from the American feel of 'Where's Da G's' to the hard hitting sound of 'Sirens'. Dizzee Rascal has delivered on this album though being a fan since the start I was not impressed with the album as much as I hoped I would be but then again I was expecting him to top 'Showtime' which is a near on impossible task to do. If your not a fan of this album please take the time to check out Showtime for his best work and then you will realise the true quality of the sound you are listening to.
