The salient points

  • The members of this 'outfit' are individually known as 'Rizzle' and 'Sylvester', but the group is titled as the fairly Rizzle-biased 'Rizzle Kicks'.
  • Rizzle Kicks, their Myspace page tells us, were technically founded in 1996 when the pair played together at Rizzle's auntie's house.
  • They met later at college in Brighton and made music and music videos.
  • Despite commiting the sin of working with Olly Murs, the collaboration in question produced the very good 'Heart Skips A Beat' so we can forgive them.
  • Rizzle Kicks' first album 'Stereo Typical' was released on October 31 2011 and faced chart competition from Justin Bieber's critically acclaimed Christmas album.
  • Their sound is described as 'pop and hip hop incorporating the fun elements of the old school hip-hop era circa 1988-92'.
  • They are down with trumpets.
