Dirty Dike first rose to prominence with his acclaimed debut solo album Bogies and Alcohol. This was way back in 2008. Aggressive expansion saw Dike later join forces with Jam Baxter, Ronnie Bosh, Mr Key and Edward Scissortongue to form the much heralded hip hop super outfit Contact Play whose debut release Champion Fraff was swiftly hailed as one of the most exciting releases that the UK Hip Hop scene had witnessed in years. The success of Champion Fraff, plus the potent addition of solo sophomore follow up Constant Dikestar and most recently the gloriously received Sloshpot EP to his catalogue of releases, has seen Dike grow from a rambunctious twenty-something into one of the most talked about emcees in the game.
You can now find him either in Melonskin studios beating the f*ck into his MPC, neck deep in records at one of Brighton’s many vinyl emporiums or literally flying up the motorways and down the train tracks of the UK, or jumping on a jet or two overseas delivering one of the rowdiest shows on the circuit to sold-out venues everywhere.
