With only 2 days to go before the legendary Krafty Kuts and Dynamite MC hit the starlite room, I felt it would be appropriate to enlighten those of you who have yet to discover the talent that is Dynamite MC. Here's the lowdown...

"Dynamite MC, (born & Dominic Smith, 7 October) grew up around the world , Germany, Ireland, Brazil , Gloucester , Bristol and now London. He originally gained prominence in jungle/drum and bass, working with Roni Size and Reprazent, but has also released hip hop and breaks and garage material.

He started his MCing career on pirate radio station, Crush FM, broadcasting in Gloucester South West England during the early 1990s. He met Roni Size in 1994 and began MCing for the Full Cycle crew. When the Bristol collective formed the live band Reprazent, Dynamite shared vocal duties with singer, Onallee. Their debut album New Forms won the Mercury Music Prize in 1997. Dynamite's role was enhanced for Reprazent's second album, the hip-hop influenced In The Mode (2000).

Following this, Dynamite has collaborated with a range of artists including The Nextmen, DJ Skitz, Scratch Perverts, Andy C and DJ Zinc, Krafty Kuts releasing a solo album The World of Dynamite (2004). In 2006 a mixtape CD, "Big Man Talk" was released on the Strong Records label (featuring samples from Enya and Kanye West).

The track, "Bounce", is featured on the soundtrack of Madden NFL '07.

"Bounce" and "After Party" also feature in the video game, Need for Speed: Carbon.

His latest release in Feb 2010 " Big Man Talk2" is available for free download from this page and http//

Currently working on a new album "Radio-Active" expect production from zinc , jack beats , shy fx , skream , red light and more ! "
