Sunday 28 October

Crowned best MC at the tender age of 15 by Kool FM, Dwayne Mahorn aka Durrty Goodz, has garnered a strong following in the garage scene. Exploring hip hop and Jamaican influences, Durrty Goodz joined the 100% Homegrown 1Xtra night for the BBC Electric Proms.


Sorry we were only able to keep performance videos online for a week after the festival.

what happened

Minute by minute report, via text message, by the BBC's Daniel Bean

  1. 20.48 - Durrty Goodz has taken over the MIC.
  2. 20.50 - His flow is furious. It seems like he's chatting at 100 miles an hour.
  3. 20.59 - Durrty drops 'Get Shot Down', an exclusive track from his new album.
  4. 21.01 - He's prowling the stage. Furiously spitting lyrics and staring out the crowd.
  5. 21.03 - Then suddenly he's gone. His set was short but powerful.

audience reviews

My favourite performance of the proms, his flow is amazing without having to sacrifice content as was his stamina to spit non-stop over top-end bpm beats for 7mins, brilliant.
