In the creation of this material, and his new album as a whole, Dizz1, aka Dave Norris, set out with a mission to explore progressive, long-building, deep dance music arrangements in a hip hop context and at a hip hop tempo, with the idea of getting his favourite MCs to spit over beats that were far from the conventional looped bars making for a hypnotic yet punchy and accessible sound.
The Get Em Up EP continues what he started on the Everyday Grind EP which was released in early 2014, featuring cuts with Aloe Blacc, Warrior Queen and Om Mas Keith (on which man-of-the-moment Keith followed up his recent production credits for Jay-Z, Kanye West and Frank Ocean with a stint in the vocal booth), to support from Om Unit, Clash, FACT, THUMP, MOJO, Potholes In My Blog and many more.
