The word pioneer is not to be used lightly. But once in a blue moon, an artist comes along that destroys away all competition with their sheer originality, charisma and forthright, genre defying creative ability. The artist in question needs no introduction, as after years of influencing the world with his undeniable raw talent, Dwayne Mahorn a.k.a Durrty Goodz is the definition of a pioneering lyrical genius. Born in Leytonstone, East London [the home of grime], Goodz came up alongside the likes of his musical peers and collaborators: Dizzee Rascal, Kano, and Roll Deep, shaping the sound that has now topped charts the world over.
Through the trials and tribulations of run-ins with the law and major label drama, Durrty Goodz is back wiser, focussed and more determined than ever, maintaining his globally honed reputation, leaving his loyal fans the world over waiting eagerly for the new album.
The official first single, Oi Wot U Lookin At is a ferocious return to the real grime sound. Theres no pop hook, female singer making it sickly sweet or sticking to any chart topping clichés. This is the raw, unadulterated energy that has made Goodz one of the realest artists in music today. Backed with a high-octane, highly original video, the song is an instant classic setting the bar dangerously high for 2011.
The album his fans have been dying to hear since he debuted on the music scene so many years ago will arrive shortly after the release this first big single. Overall is set to be released in early 2011 on Durrty’s label: Inapeace, and delivers every single ounce of the fire that we as fans deserve. It is ferocious, perfectly orchestrated, and above all it is grimey.
