LDZ (London Zoo) front man Dabbla a.k.a Puppa Murc is the exception to the rule. With a junglist background, time served on the grime rave scene, a huge reputation in domestic Hip-Hop & an affiliation with Dubstep that began long before the phrase had even been coined, he is truly a chameleon of rhyme. With a conversational yet still poignant delivery, a witty yet still insightful turn of phrase and an ability to switch from the simplest of flows to the most complex in a heart beat, Dabbla manages to be both a rappers rapper and a fan favourite in the same song. While fronting LDZ, Dabbla has managed to; Have music played by many commercial & underground DJ’s including the late, great John Peel.

He is also a co-founder and designer at Supremebeing clothing.

He has featured on records with Mr Scruff, Roots Manuva, Task Force, Phi Life Cipher, Dirty Dike & many more. Skuff delivers rap's trademark bravado with a touch of self depreciation ("I'm a grown damn man with a made-up name"), bringing brutal honesty, deft insight and subtle irony; all sometimes rare in hip hop. Clever wordplay, vocal posturing and straight-up bangers sit comfortably alongside tracks on love, friendship and loss, making the LP personal without being self indulgent. At times energising, often touching, skill full and brutally honest, above all it sounds really good when he raps. Production on Destroy Everything is handled by Skuff himself, Farma G (Task Force), Mr Constant, Bioviolence, Bee 109 (Delegates of Culture) and Inja. Featured guests are Life (Phi Life Cipher) Dirty Dike (Contact Play) S Class (Delegates of Culture) Inja & Slang Immaculate.

Free releases 'Deep Covers Project' & 'Smash Anything' came out as appetisers in 2011 & 2012, with Skuff's unlikely but poignant cover of Radiohead's 'Creep' being one of the stand out tracks.
