Showtime is a bigger-sounding album than Boy… but it’s equally individual. It’s a force of nature: a volcanic ride of crazy wordplay, ghetto techno and bottom-heavy bass. Boy In Da Corner was stunning because of its penetrating power and singular evocation of inner city life, and Showtime hits the spot for similar reasons – but with added bass power and, crucially more tunes. What Mills has dropped in neurosis he has gained in precision-guided anger. Tracks such as the first single, Stand Up Tall, a hyperactive, video-game bounce with a hyper-catchy chorus, and Get By, the first Dizzee Rascal tune to feature a sung vocal, courtesy of Vanya, instantly grab the listener. Respect Me, Graftin’ and Everywhere are about as trenchant as it’s possible to be – hardcore both in content and sonics; whiplashed with ragga, jungle and techno. But then there are the curveballs. Dream shows Mills in playful mode, despite the content being serious. And Imagine – opening lines ‘If I showed you one day/I was leaving the ‘hood/would you call me a sellout?’ – stands out an inner-city mile courtesy of both lyrical content and the emotive, string-led music underneath. In Dizzee’s words; “A year ago, I was straight off road, straight from outside the off-licence. Boy In Da Corner is that perspective - back against the wall, only seeing what’s in front of you. It was harsh, bashing around music. I’ve moved forward, travelled, digested a lot. That’s why this album is called Showtime. You think I’m just hardcore, raw? I’m more.”
