Dizzee Rascal has said that his new album is the best produced of his career to date.

The rapper, who is due to release the follow up to 2009's 'Tongue N' Cheek' later in the year, revealed in a new interview that he is working with a number of "big league" producers on his new music and is confident that the album is his finest work to date. ''I'm at a point where there's so much music. It's mad," Dizzee told BBC Radio 1, ''It's the best produced album I've done so far because of the calibre of producers I'm working with. It's all big league. It's like a party album.''

Discussing the influences on his new material, Dizzee claimed that his life in Miami has helped him settle and feel at ease with writing new songs to rival his hits such as 'Bonkers' and 'Dance Wiv Me'. ''This past year or so, moving to Miami, I've actually had a life,'' he said. ''I feel a lot more settled now. I'm coming out ready just really wanting to get out there, perform new music. I've been doing the same songs for a little while now, and it's cool, but it's nice to do some fresh material.''

Dizzee Rascal recently offered fans an opportunity to hear new material in the shape of the free download 'The Mixtape Vol 2' he distributed online late last year. Included on the mixtape was new song 'Bassline Junkie'.
