With swagger and skill beyond his 18 years, West London rapper Twizzle is taking British urban music forward and into the future. With an undeniable flow and a mark for the flashy, Twizzle cut his teeth spitting on the pirate radio stations around Shepherds Bush from the age of 14. He soon graduated to the local “West On Lock” freestyle competition, which he won hands-down, two years running.
At 16, he got locked up in a juvenile facility for drug charges. This was the wake-up call Twizzle needed, and he decided to put all that in the past and made a bee-line for the fame and respect he felt was due him. Twizzle’s first mixtape, last year’s ‘Str8 Out The Jar’, found him repping all sorts from hip hop’s past along with UK garage and grime with a flow that’s seriously uncommon and beats that are worthy of piles of praise.
His reputation as a rhymer to be reckoned with soon brought him to the attention of Squarepeg management who hooked him up with producers Benji Vaughan and GreenMoney. Twizzle’s debut single, ‘Skydiving‘, will drop on February 22nd, 2010. The main mix comes from hot new West London production duo, GreenMoney. The track has that unmistakable energy of a 21st century UK dance floor: a melting pot of hip-hop’s strut, house’s tempo, drum n’ bass’s rabble rousing klaxon, pop’s instant hooks, plus that extra something.
Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw certainly agree, and have already begun hammering the track on their Radio 1 shows. Annie also included the dub mix on her current “Annie Mac Presents…” compilation. The crowd at Camden’s Roundhouse also seemed to agree when Twizzle took the stage in August for a superb debut show.  A man whose undoubtable talent is equalled only by his ambition, Twizzle is determined to put London on his back and take it to the top this year if it’s the last thing he does. With an album already in the making, Twizzle is the urban artist to look out for in 2010.
