iZMO: Rap & Hip Hop
Sub iZMO: Abstract Hip Hop

Explaining the inspiration behind Daxyde's is a long list of people and experiences. From Maya Angelou, lamgston hughes, lord byron, dorothy parker, shakespeare, wordsworth, martin king, nelson mandela, bob marley, lucky dube, jimmy cliff, 'my mother' and the list goes on. Obsessed not only with what people say but also by how they say it. 'i think, i breathe, i read, i write poetry.' Performing arts college and a role in teen-drama-series Byker Grove 2002 fuelled Daxyde's belief that he wanted the spotlight because has something to say that has not been said and most definitely in a way that has not been done.

Technical training and improvisation skills not to mention peerless wordplay and an impeccable delivery resulted in the sensational four track DEMO-lition being produced in two days at gateshead's broadwater studios [production by Paul Worthington].
In Hiphop and the epic Something Inside* Daxyde's deeper and darker roots are aired; the pianos and softer beats bring out his african twang and his diction does the the talking. There's a real sense you're listening to someone who has lived and daxyde certainly has, skipping the hurdles that many of his peers have fallen at; abject poverty, AIDS, malaria, polio, civil conflict plus the everyday trials and tribulations of growing up. Personal battles included spending the first 11 years of his life with relatives before his mother was able to hold down a family unit.

Six years later in the year 2000 the family moved to the United Kingdom with Daxyde finding himself at Westgate Community College in the west end of Newcastle where the only other black person around at the time was 'my shadow'.

It's somewhat ironic then that he says untill watching 'Hotel Rwanda' and similar movies he never really knew what was happening in his sub-saharan home, just that pupils and teachers were going missing because there was trouble in a neighbouring country. That in itself is a symptom of Daxyde's focus and ability to cut through the noise and find positive influences from life despite his own having very few.

The DEMO-lition is his.
I Jus Wanna and Come Get It' amalgamate the late 90's hiphop of artists such as Busta Rhymes, tupac, DMX and puff Daddy plus whatever other import we could sneak into school since music was banned'.

His are floor and potential playlist fillers synonymic with the more recent vibe of artists such as lil wayne, T.I and eminem. He's got an almost universal appeal destined to become radio, club and even festival anthems along with daxyde's unmistakable and immaculate flow.

There's much more to come from this unsigned artist with a unique sound that's likely to appeal worldwide. Daxyde's just getting started
