The British rapper’s scathing attack on Western tourism explores the concepts of exoticism.

Dizraeli’s excursion into East Indian rhythms gives food for thought in “People Taking Pictures”. The British rapper’s scathing attack on Western tourism explores the concepts of exoticism over a hand-drummed groove and some snatches of Bollywood splendour. His observations make a compelling case for the exploitative damage that a single click of a camera can cause and he isn’t beyond calling himself out on that charge. Dizraeli’s dagger-tipped rhymes are thrown so swiftly, they can leave you unsteady (that is, if they don’t cut you first). But the full-bodies beats and their vigorous rhythms (courtesy of Tom Caruana) should help regain your balance.  Check out the first single from the upcoming White Man (Moves) album.
