Make way for the hounds, ‘cause here come the sounds of the DIRTY WORMZ. And they’re ready to turn the music world upside down. Their “Street Rock” mixes Rap, Hip-Hop and Hard Rock with an evil twist to get those heads bobbin’ all in one continuous & contagious, neck-breaking motion.

Biography

The story of the diRTy WoRMz began in the summer of 2001. Smackola was an established solo rap artist, and DJ Crash was a member of his Waay Foul Crew. After recording several hip hop discs for Body Head Entertainment (founded by champion boxer Roy Jones Jr.), Smack and Crash decided it was time to get heavy.

So they hooked up with brothers Alex, AJ and Omar, who play in one of Texas' hottest rock acts, Vallejo. The group started collaborating together with Dirty D to create what would become the World's Most Dangerouz Soundz.

Six months later, they went into the studio with renowned producer Dwight "Dwizza" Baker and came out with a blistering combination of Rap, Rock and Hip Hop: "Street Rock". The Infektion was started and diRTy WoRMz was born. With a shocking visual presence, a relentless beat, and a sound like a sucker punch to the gut, the WoRMz were poised to take over the airwaves and stages across Texas and around the world.

Since the Vallejo bros had their own thing, it was up to Smackola and DJ Crash to assemble a band that was true to the sound and attitude of diRTy WoRMz. With Dirty D (bass)and the Witch Doktor (?) already on board, the WoRMz recruited Jax and Sanman on guitar and Chico on drums.

The new band cut its teeth in early 2003 by playing a series of shows at the dearly departed Steamboat club in Austin, TX. The group went through numerous disruptions, personnel changes, and more than a little interference from the Texas Department of Corrections, but through it all they kept the sound and attitude that is the diRTy WoRMz. dWz has spread The Infektion across the great state of Texas, kickin over venues in Dallas, Houston and San Antonio to rave reviews.

diRTy WoRMz were recognized as Best Hip Hop Band at the 2004 Austin Musica Awards, and their video "Here We Go" won Best Urban Video at the 2004 Austin Music Network Video Awards.

The next challenge for diRTy WoRMz will be to continue winning over fans from Texas and beyond, while producing new material that reflects the diverse backgrounds of the band members while staying true to the dWz sound. Proof of the WoRMz' evolution can be seen at their incendiary live shows, with new songs like "Glock Burna" and "Live Wire", plus plenty more to come.

So pop your colla and holla, put the wig on the pig, and keep it greazy, cuz dWz is gonna get all y'all's ass INFEKTED.
