Released: 24th Jun, 2016
Label: Tru Thoughts
Out 24th June on Tru Thoughts, “Organise”/“BMP” is the new double A-sided single from the talented emcee Durrty Goodz. This single illuminates two new tracks from his upcoming material, ‘Not Been Televised EP’ (out 8th July) and the ‘Hungry Belly’ package (out 19th August), and has received early radio support from Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6Music).
Durrty Goodz has earned himself a reputation as a first-class wordsmith, with his undisputed flow and lyrical versatility in the Grime and Hip Hop scenes. London-born Dwayne Mahorn possesses a natural ability to flitter seamlessly between many styles - from Grime, Dancehall and Reggae to Hip Hop and Jungle - and hook you with his magnetic verse. Over the years Durrty Goodz has procured a loyal following, from the likes of Kate Tempest to Pitchfork, XLR8R, Fact and more. His on-point freestyles have led him to perform on Westwood’s show and make multiple appearances on Charlie Sloth’s ‘Fire In The Booth’.
“Organise” is lifted from his upcoming ‘Not Been Televised EP’, a Hip Hop orientated release co-produced by Micall Parknsun (who’s previously released on trailblazing Hip Hop labels such as YNR Productions, Sit Tight Records & Low Life Records) and features six new tracks (including a collaboration with Ty). On “Organise” Goodz holds nothing back and his lyrical skills show him comfortably entertain a deeper style whilst dropping in playful references to Chaka Khan, Kim Kardashian and Rasta Mouse on a slick Hip Hop beat.
“BMP” is raised from his forthcoming package ‘Hungry Belly’, a selection of 10 standout Grime tracks. Production on this release is handled by Mystry (who produced Pulse 8 for JME) and Maschine Man Tim (who produced Singalong for Crazy Titch). Hitting hard “BMP” or “Bad Man Party” is a militant Grime banger to step to in the club. Led by Goodz’s quick-witted and dexterous bars and fuelled by Mystry’s iconic and dark Trap beat, this track is one that you need to get to know.
Durrty Goodz has worked with names from Dizzee Rascal to Dexplicit & Flowdan, and been supported by the influential Grime DJ Logan Sama. Goodz has been repeatedly commended for his back catalogue of material, like his ‘Axiom EP’ [Awkward, 2007], which was praised by Pitchfork as being “A breath-taking example of how uniquely incredible Grime can be: powerful, exhilarating, funny, clever, poetic, heart-wrenching, and uniquely London”. As a result of his decisions to work with small labels and self-release, Goodz has delivered an astonishing and diverse body of raw and unspoilt mixtapes like ‘Born Blessed’ [self-released, 2010] and ‘Vintage 3000’ [self-released, 2014] over the years.
