Biography

Hip-hop from New Haven, Connecticut, U.S.A. Legendary Connecticut rapper-producer-DJ Dooley-O is widely recognised in DJ circles as the first in hip-hop to sample obscure 70’s band Skull Snaps’ It’s A New Day. After recording an unreleased album for the label Tavdash (one time home to R Kelly), Dooley presented the public access series Graffiti TV and became a mentor figure to funk-curator Egon who would later head prestigious independent label, Stones Throw. While the label would later release Dooley’s single Watch My Moves and Solid would issue a well-received album of back catalogue material under the same name, it wasn’t until 2005 that Dooley’s first album of new music would finally find a home. Released on Lewis to rapturous acclaim for it’s expertly helmed gritty production and everyman lyrical perspective, I Gotcha proved age hadn’t dimmed Dooley’s musical gifts.
