Technically, Rizzle Kicks was founded in about 1996, when both members, in their miniature form, used to play together round Rizzle's auntie's house. It wasn't until eight years later that the pair reunited after both moving to Brighton and facing each other head-on in a Sunday league football match. Four years later, they ended up going to the same college and one day Rizzle got Sylvester to 'Lalala' all over a track. They soon realised how nicely their styles fitted together. Rizzle was just finishing off his own mixtape, rapping over samples of some of their favourite artists (Gorillaz, Lily Allen, Arctic Monkeys etc) when they officially became Rizzle Kicks.

As a newly formed duo, they started to hustle for beats from local producers and started making their own music videos with a friend of theirs.

Having finally been able to get into a proper studio with some talented producers after being signed to Island records, Rizzle Kicks are now working on their album, a mixture of pop and hip hop incorporating the fun elements of the old school hip-hop era circa 1988-92.

    Rizzle Kicks: November / December Tour Cancelled

    Hey guys. I know it's shit but Harley and I are cancelling the Rizzle kicks Nov/Dec tour. We're going to record a video to reaffirm why and emphasise our frustration but ultimately these are the reasons.
    * We haven't released our album yet.
    * We lost a few months of promo whilst Harley began to really struggle with GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder)
    * The music game's changing big time and similarly we lost ground when stepping off the beaten track. (Even though no one really knows what that track is)

    On a more positive note.

    * We actually have made some really good music that we will be continuously drip feeding over the coming months and definitely giving you for free at points because it's ridiculous how long this has all dragged out.
    * Harley is receiving help for his anxiety, and I'm documenting the process myself to raise awareness and hopefully help out others in a similar situation.
    * When we rebook the tour it'll be off the back of a solid piece of work that we've already made instead of working towards.

    We're seriously not happy that we're letting so many people down but we will only use November and December to ensure that 2017 flys as smoothly as possible - and that we're completely happy and that we feel balanced and that we're not coaxed into making anymore rash decisions.

    You can help us take the reigns back by supporting the music that we love to make when we release it.

    You're all fucking great.
    Sometimes things aren't great.
    We're just going to try and ensure the music is.
    You'd be right to feel as though I'm pissed off on another level too. If you bump into me on the train I'll give you the complete low down.

    Peace x
