Jam Hot: Week 21

Post categories:

Mistajam | 21:26 UK time, Thursday, 22 May 2008

Every week on my show, I choose one record that isn't just hot, it's JAM HOT and I play it every day. This week the honour goes to an emcee that can rock D&B, HipHop, Garage - he's got styles galore!

Dynamite MC's "What"

• Born in Germany, raised in Gloucester; Dominic Smith aka Dynamite MC started his MCing career on pirate radio during the early 90s.
• He met Roni Size in 1994 and began MCing for the Full Cycle crew.
• When the Bristol collective formed live band Reprazent, Dynamite shared vocal duties with singer Onallee.
• Their debut album New Forms won the Mercury Music Prize in 1997. Dynamite's role was greatly enhanced for Reprazent's second album, the strongly hip-hop influenced In The Mode released in 2000.
• Following this, Dynamite went solo and collaborated with a range of artists including The Nextmen, Skitz, Scratch Perverts, Andy C and DJ Zinc, releasing a solo album "The World of Dynamite" in 2004.
• In 2006 a mix CD, 'Big Man Talk' was released on his own Strong Records label
• A third album, 'Styles Galore' is set to follow at some point this year.

"What" is produced by TnT and is the first single he's allowing you to download FOR FREE from 9th June. It shows Dynamite's HipHop style and it's overly big!

Check the video above, his blog here and his myspace here - he came through the show tonight (22nd May) and DESTROYED a large amount of beats. If you missed it, jump on the BBC iPlayer now and listen again...
