Dizraeli, the award-winning rapper, producer, activist, and multi-instrumentalist, has returned with his latest album ‘Alive At The End Of The World: Set Two’. The album is the second part of a double album release that features live recordings from his pioneering tour, The Twenty Years Deep Tour, which is not only socially responsible but also ecologically sustainable. The tour serves as a model for other artists, encouraging them to explore ways to tour while reducing their carbon footprint.
A passionate climate activist and campaigner, Dizraeli’s recent tour was built around three key aims: ecological sustainability, community building, and creating a legacy that matters. The tour was designed to minimize its carbon footprint by using trains and low-carbon vehicles, planting trees and distributing wildflower seeds in every city visited, and promoting local food producers. The tour also connected communities by collaborating with community choirs, offering free tickets to young people, and showcasing talented young artists from disadvantaged backgrounds. Finally, the tour aimed to create a legacy that matters by serving as a model for other socially and environmentally conscious artists.
The second set of tracks from the double album release, ‘Alive At The End Of The World’, showcases Dizraeli’s unique soundscapes that blend live organic elements with rich electronics, leaning further into the latter than part one of the double release. A fascinating collection of tracks that blends live strings, pulsing synths, and punching drums, topped with a wash of soulful backing vocals to create an impactful yet luscious bed for Dizraeli’s urgent deliver, effortlessly captivating flow and ever poetic lyricism.
Speaking about the release, Dizraeli explains: “The second part of my two-part live album takes you to the rowdier, darker side of the artist’s catalogue and the phenomenal band step up to the plate, with Joseph Costi’s synth work and the drumming of Ben Brown (Alfa Mist, Mulatu Astatke) coming into their own. With a number of songs drawn from the Worldwide Music Award-nominated album The Unmaster, Alive At The End Of The World : Set Two swings from righteous fire to the frenetic, anxious energy of I Freak Out, to the epic choral energy of I’m A Wave, featuring the harmonies of two Bristol choirs. This is heartfelt, passionate rebel music for broken times.”
