In Sickness & In Health is the debut full-length from Dizz1 on Tru Thoughts. In its creation, Dizz1 AKA Melbourne based Dave Norris - had a mission to explore progressive, long-building, deep dance music arrangements in a hip hop context and tempo, with the idea of getting his favourite MCs to spit over beats that are far from the conventional looped bars. Reflecting the esteem in which he is held, his dream team of vocalists materialised; a host of collaborators lined up to help transmute Dizz1 s vision via their charisma and lyrical chops.

The deep electronic and intrepid hip hop album follows on from two heavy EPs: 2014 s Everyday Grind featuring Aloe Blacc, Warrior Queen and Om Mas Keith; and the Get Em Up EP. The latter EP unveiled tracks with renowned rapper Frank Nitt (Frank N Dank, Yancey Boys, J Dilla) as well as a bonus Danny Breaks remix, and recently gained the ultimate endorsement in forward-thinking hip hop when it was leaked upfront by Flying Lotus on his BBC R1 Residency.

Known for his feel - whether it s scratching, drumming or programming those sideways beats - turntablist, producer and drummer Dizz1 has been in the music industry for over a decade, including two years in Japan. In the early 00s he played major festivals, appeared on Channel V and toured across Australia, Malaysia and New Zealand, rising quickly to perform alongside the likes of Grand Master Flash, Roni Size, Jam Master Jay (RIP) and JRocc.
