London based/ Dutch born producer Diztortion producer has caused quite a storm of late.
Since producing the iconic club track ‘Badd’ by Stylo G, which featured reggae legend Sister Nancy, his sound became one that was familiar on sound systems world wide and has led to him being identified as one of the hottest up and coming new producers from Europe.
He has since been tearing up the airwaves across the world after producing a string of radio and club hits, including the huge Lethal Bizzle track ‘Fester Skank’ (certified Silver 200,000 sales), ‘Soundbwoy’ by Stylo G and ‘Redemption’ with Chart topping Drum and Bass Duo Sigma.
Diztortion has also been busy working with the cream of the crop of Urban and Dance music artists such as Tinie Tempah, Wiley, Stormzy, Bonkaz, Major Lazer and DJ Fresh as well as releasing his own singles ‘Bandolero’ with Ms Dynamite and ‘Put Your Love On Me’ ft Sasha Keable & Stylo G.
Diztortion’s parental heritage is Suriname in South America and he has cited this as a key factor in the creation of his signature hard-hitting drums as well as his musical background as a drummer.
Influenced by the likes of DJ Premier and J Dilla and more recently Skrillex, he uniquely crafts his fusion of hip hop, reggae and electronic dance music into what can only be described as his own sound.
He is now a firm favourite with the likes of leading tastemakers Mista Jam and Annie Mac as well as the daytime media playlist gatekeepers scoring no less that 10 1Xtra playlists in 12 months and 5 Radio 1 playlists with his productions.
Diztortion was recently crowned with the ‘Best Producer’ award at both the 2015 GRM Rated awards as well as being nominated for a 2015 MOBO award for ‘Best Video’ along side Lethal Biz and the 2015 Urban Music Awards as well as being nominated for a MOBO Awards with Lethal Bizzle for best video with ‘Fester Skank’.
