Dizraeli is a rapper, poet and multi-instrumentalist. He’s won the BBC 4 Poetry Slam with his spoken words, and toured the world collaborating with artists as diverse as Chris Wood and Kenya’s Ayub Ogada. Although his roots are in hiphop, his work draws equally on folk shanties and old blues, running through the rain and supermarkets of England with a naked honesty, a sideways smile and a twist of phrase.
2009 World Champion beatboxer and Guildhall trained jazz double bassist Bellatrix is known for her work with independent power-house girl band The Boxettes, and with psychedelic hip-hop outfit Dizraeli and the Small Gods.
It is only now, after years of extensive collaborations and international performances as a beatboxer and bassist, has Bellatrix revealed a new slant to her identity as an artist. It turns out that Bellatrix has an unusually distinctive singing voice, and a whole load of songs that nobody had ever heard before.
In her new show, Bellatrix uses live looping with her voice, bass and synth to create a primal sounding bed for her kooky melodies. This is the beginning of an exciting new journey for Bellatrix and her music as a solo artist.
