We are two best friends, one from the UK and the other from the US. Ardin (AKA DIZZ-E) is from UK and Peter (AKA Base – P) is from the US. We met in the Czech Republic back in 2010, when we were both teaching at the same high school. We are both highly educated, both doctors. Peter is a Medical Doctor and I’m a criminal Psychologist. We both came up with tough backgrounds, but manage to make it out and both have had many family and friends pass on at very early age. We have grind and work hard to accomplish our goals. Rap music helped both of us to stay positive and also motivated us.
We currently live in Czech Republic; were we still teach.
Ardin (DIZZ-E) use to rap back in the late 80’s with a group called Playskool, back in Manchester, England, however rap was not very popular in the UK at that time. Peter sang in a church choir, back in the states, but nothing professional.
After listening to what was out there, we decide to take it back to the old school type of lyrics and mix it in with modern and fresh beats. We decide to call ourselves, Critical Opinion, because in many of our songs we rap about our opinion about what’s happening in the world today and in our own countries. Perfect example of this is, Crooked Cops
The beats are from Valentine Beats and our friend in Brazil, Simon Kang did the final mixing and mastering and add extra music tracks. We also have some videos coming out soon on YouTube and Vimeo.
Our title track is called Blocks, it just a fun track that we had fun with and more of a club song, with awesome music and hard lyrics.
We are already working on our second album and hope to release at least 5 albums. We have our own record label called, Phat Track Records and video production company called, Kool Kats Production.
Our first, album, “Blocks” is available on all major online music platforms and stores.
