Dizraeli & The Small Gods are a 6-piece band playing their very own breed of psychedelic hiphop music. With award-winning rapper & multi-instrumentalist Dizraeli on lead vocals and featuring World Female Beatbox Champion, Bellatrix, they are utterly unlike anything you know. Their live show has never failed to bring holy fire to any stage they stand on.
They formed in 2009 when Dizraeli released his debut solo album, 'Engurland (City Shanties)'. The album featured many of the band members anyway, and they came together to tour the songs from it.
It wasn't long before they were spurting out new, collaboratively written music, with echoes of their backgrounds in hiphop, folk, jazz, classical, electronic music and all between... An epic album, Moving In The Dark, was born and ECC Records released it in 2013, hooting and bending minds as it went. Tracks were given weighty rotation on 6Music, BBC Radio 2, Radio 3 and local radios around the UK.
2014 began for the band with a nomination for the prestigious Songlines Music Awards, and now an even fresher new sound is taking shape - away from the folked sounds of Moving In The Dark and into weirder terrains. Think J Dilla meets Bjork aboard the Jefferson Airplane, and you're just about circling the turd.
In autumn 2014 the Small Gods embark on The Depths Tour, with a brand new anti-homophobia single and video... It's about to get swervy.
