A Quaint Sit Down With Dizz1

Well, first off, if you are unfamiliar, shame on you, but get these tunes playin in the background while you read ahead, for the full immersion experience.   Dizz1 makes some dope bassed out beats, and you need to soundcheck that shit.  HHAD faithful already know whats up.   

What's his story, what makes him tick, is it true he fought in the Outback Zombie wars?   Well, he got started as a drummer, and then he made the switch to scratching and djing at 14.  With Jam Master Jay,  Evil E, and Terminator X as inspiration, he had no choice but to go to work on his dads records, only to catch a few ass whoopings (ah the memories) .  Dizz copped his first MPC in 2000 and from there has moved on to his Rane TTM57, KP3 when on the decks, and for producing, Ableton Live 8 Suite, UAD2 plugs, a Virus keyboard, and UAD 2 laptop solo card.  

Hailing from Australia, he comes from a scene boasting heavy sound systems (Void, Space Is The Place), and some bass dons like Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek.  But here at C2D we have to ask the important questions.  We hit hard like A Current Affair.  Of course, that means questions about food and booze....
