So its surprising that his latest hook-up isnt with a big-lunged soulstress or an up- and-coming indie band: its with Walthamstow grime star Lethal Bizzle, aka 26-year-old Maxwell Ansah. Marks a really chilled-out guy, buzzes Bizzle down the phone from his new home in Kent. We kept bumping into each other at festivals and he offered to send me some music. I was like, Yeah, cool, but Im a bit picky, a bit fussy. So hed send these tracks over and I was like Nah, those dont work for me, until finally he sent me one and I was like, Oh my gosh, yes! He played hard to get? Yes, he giggles mischievously, sounding less like a hard grime MC by the second. But Mark took it well. We recorded in this studio in Old Street and it was nice, a very memorable experience. The track in question, Lost My Mind, is a stand-out on Bizzles high-energy new album, Go Hard. Its a hip hop number with scratchy violins that shows Bizzles talent for bending grime out of shape. Uniquely, you cant really imagine any of the new songs as ringtones -- was that the plan? I just wanted to make a real party album. Something you can do live and have fun with. Im all about rocking the crowd and giving people a good time. Mark Ronson isnt the first unlikely collaboration for Bizzle. He worked with Babyshambles in 2007 on his second album, Back To Bizznizz, mak- ing him a proper grindie (grime/ indie) artist. Less credibly, he joined forces with Jeremy Clarkson for a Top Gear Comic Relief special. Isnt he worried about losing his cool? No, because in terms of grime, Im up there. Ive made one of the biggest grime hits ever [Pow! (Forward) won him a Mobo for best single in 2004]. Its in my blood. Anyway, keeping it real is whats important. For shizzle, Bizzle.
