EXCLUSIVE! New tracks go down a storm on the White Isle...
Thursday, August 29, 2013 - 16:08
Speaking toIbiza Rocks last night (August 28), the grime star revealed: "This event has…influenced how I make music.
"Doing things like this is what helped me make songs like Holiday and all the other stuff like that is through this kind of thing and even on my new album a lot of the music was geared towards things like this."
Dizzee's new album The Fifth drops next month and features collaborations from the like of Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Will.I.Am and Sean Kingston of which the Goin' Crazy rapper said he was "feeling good" about it.
"I've been doing a lot of shows this year so like I said a lot of it was engineered for live and it works live and you're gonna see tonight how it goes down so I'm just looking forward to it.
"It's been going down well and people don't even know the songs so I can't wait 'til next year."
Last night, the heavens opened on the Ibiza Rocks hotel but were spirits dampened? Hell no.
In fact it probably riled the crowd up even more and true to his word, the new material went down a literal storm as he reeled off Superman, I Don't Need A Reason, We Don't Play Around and Bassline Junkie from the get go.
You can catch Dizzee Rascal's Mallorca Rocks show at 9pm September 15th on MTV Music.
