Dumile was born in London in the early 70s and his family shuttled between New York's boroughs before settling in Long Island.
Dumile and his brother were both in their teens and they would troop from Long Island to Manhattan's Chung King Studios every night.
It's easy to dismiss Dumile when he raps that all he needs is a "metal-face mask with a built-in frown" ("It Ain't Nttin") and a steady supply of beers (nearly every other song) when the adjacent verse invokes space monsters or, on his latest disc, Mm...

 Daniel Dumile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Daniel Dumile (IPA: duːməleɪ) is an American hip hop artist who has taken on several stage names in his career - originally Zev Love X, most famously MF DOOM, and in side projects as King Geedorah, Metal Fingers and Viktor Vaughn.
With the loss of his brother, Dumile became disillusioned and began to suffer from bouts of depression.
Dumile is rarely seen in public without a mask or hood on, other than the MF Grimm vs. MF DOOM album cover, there exist no promotional photos or videos of his face post-KMD, save for the video to "?" where his face can be seen by pausing the video as he's putting on his mask.

 Stones Throw Records
According to Dumile, his mask and reluctance to do press are not mere acts of defiance against the MTV generation.
Throughout the album, Jackson and Dumile sound both confident and intuitive, and that can be attributed to the aforementioned "freestyle approach," in which there is little time for either hesitation or self-consciousness, much less the complications and clashes that often arise with this sort collaboration.
The finished product works so well that at times Dumile sounds as if he could only exist in Jackson's self-contained world, as if there were some essential, spiritual affinity between the two artists, which, despite their differences, makes a certain kind of sense.

Dumile is a daunting rapper; few can pack so many words, many of them seemingly unrelated, into a verse.
Half of the fun with Dumile has always been the unexpected, ridiculous sampling and the storyline he develops around it.

Back in 1985, though, before he was such a hot commodity, Dumile was a member of KMD, which he co-founded with his younger brother, Subroc; it began as a graffiti and breakdancing crew and evolved into a full-fledged rap outfit.
Dumile, or Zevlove X, as he was known then, and Subroc entered the rap game at the cusp of the golden age of hip-hop.
For the next five or so years, Dumile began to create the persona of MF Doom -- a hip-hop villain seeking revenge for being scorned by the industry after the loss of his brother.

Of course I'm imagining this...obviously, it's a play on the old beatnik coffeehouse scene, but when you stack up The Neptunes against Daniel Dumile, in any and all of his guises, the unknown underground underdog wins every time...
Cuz Dumile is simply among the very best lyricists in hip hop at the moment, in terms of being a true street storyteller...this is much less abstract than anything he has done before, and the clarity of the topics and the focus of the themes helps illuminate just how good he is...

 Review - Viktor Vaughn: Venomous Villain   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Since his original group KMD dissolved following the death of his brother, British-born rapper/producer Daniel Dumile has kept it real-real weird.
Guest weirdoes include Carl Kavorkian, Iz-Real and former mental patient Kool Keith, who is without a doubt the most prolific rapper this millennium, finding time between projects to rap about his desire to urinate on your jacket during "Doper Skiller," a song trembling with the clammy paranoia of the last half of Scarface.
Vaughn's (or Dumile's?) newest story is one you'll understand less and less the more time you spend with it - yet it's still a fascinating headfuck you'll want close by, just in case reality ever gets too real for you.

Eventually, a young man from Freeport, New York, named Daniel Dumile joined their rhyme circle, well on the path to becoming MF Doom.
Carey hadn't seen his friend in a while, as Dumile had moved to suburban Atlanta with his wife and their young son, Daniel Jr.—Carey's godson.
But the chance to be with Dumile was more than he could pass up, and in a video of the concert DVD Carey has, he looks as happy as a kid at his first baseball game.

 Madvillain: Madvillainy - PopMatters Music Review
MF Doom began his career as Zev Love X -- AKA Daniel Dumile -- one half of the obscure but fondly remembered rap duo KMD.
Dumile's brother -- the other half of KMD -- DJ Subroc, died in a 1994 car accident.
The trauma of his brother's death and the disillusionment stemming from his treatment at the hands of the major-label machinery combined to create MF Doom, a shadowy figure of menace and mystery, an avatar of uncompromising independence and laconic lyrical mastery.

Somewhere behind that mask is a man called Daniel Dumile.
The man formerly known as Daniel Dumile understands that today's heroes come a dime a dozen, doused in bravado, drunk on morality and that it's all too easy to be cast as one.
That's why Dumile had to invent MF Doom, one reason MF Doom wears a mask and helps explain why the two new projects from Doom's prolific hip-hop think tank carry additional pseudonyms--King Geedorah and Viktor Vaughn--on the spine.

The man behind the mask is none other than Daniel Dumile, who grew up on the streets of New York as MC Zev Love X with his younger brother DJ Sub-Roc and formed the seminal group KMD in 1989.
This event shook up Dumile, and his rhymes became more serious with militant overtones, which led to the controversial album Bl_ck B_st_rds that got him dropped from his record label.
With this album in limbo, Zev dropped out of the N.Y. scene for five years to "recover from wounds" and plot revenge against "the industry that so badly deformed him," and thus his MF Doom persona was born.

 Rappers are in Danger at microscopiq
It’s been hard to use that term to describe indie rapper MF Doom (Daniel Dumile) since news spread of his collaboration with Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim crew and DJ Dangermouse (whose famously unreleased Grey Album was ranked best of 2004 by the desperately unhip Entertainment Weekly).
This isn’t Dumile’s most experimental record but his flows are no less creative for it.
In fact, with beats more accessible than Madvillainy and more laughs than MM..Food, this could be the record that introduces Dumile to the mainstream for the first time since the KMD days.

Madvillain was a collaboration between New York-based rapper Daniel "MF Doom" Dumile (ex-KMD) and Los Angeles-based producer Otis "Madlib" Jackson that yielded one of the most publicized albums in the history of hip-hop music, Madvillainy (Stones Throw, 2004), and its companion Madvillainy Instrumentals (2004).
London-born rapper Daniel Dumile started out as Zev Love, the mastermind of KMD, whose Mr Hood (1991) and Bl_ck B_st_rds (1993), released only in 2000, were militant Islamic pamphlets.
After a long hiatus, Dumile assumed two new personas that released MF Doom's Operation: Doomsday (1999) and the mediocre MM_ Food (2004), as well as Viktor Vaughan's Vaudeville Villain (2003) and Venomous Villain (2004).

Daniel Dumile's costume takes the metaphor to new heights, though: The Long Islander raps with a metal mask over his grill to conceal the early-'90s "disfigurement" he suffered from the industry as Zevlove of 3rd Bass-affiliated KMD.
Crime-fighting radio-serial samples provide a suspenseful storyboard, upon which Dumile exacts revenge befitting a forsaken genius.
And although he's not the greatest lyricist, like his namesake he possesses an uncanny ability to slip phantom-like into your psyche with subliminal phrases and sardonic punchlines.

In 1991, the MC born Daniel Dumile was known as Zev Love X and was a member — along with his brother Subroc — of the seminal rap group KMD, whose first album, Mr.
But by 2002, Dumile had adopted the moniker MF Doom, resurfaced as a schizophrenic solo act (due to Subroc's untimely death in 1993), and put out an album of instrumentals entitled Special Herbs V., which today seems as musically gratifying as any song on his former group's debut.
Emboldened by a scratchy minimalist break borrowed from Boogie Down Productions' "Poetry," the album's opener "Saffron" comes on like the hazy sonic equivalent of a blue-lit lava lamp, and the track's warm-blooded chord progressions provide an emotive ambience that would otherwise be found in the MC's voice.

Basing his musical persona on the infamous Marvel Comics supervillain, Dr. Doom, Dumile, or Viktor Vaughn, King Deedorah or Zev Love X of the former NYC hip-hop crew KMD, has achieved an almost cult-like status to many in the non-mainstream music world.
He's done so through an uncanny and completely original style that pairs sci-fi humor with smoothness, intelligence and wit.

This aside - all the beats are amazingly well produced and are all catchy as hell, you can bounce your head with ease and MF is on top form with some of the best flows I've heard from him yet.
Some of these raps will be missed off the 'amazing raps radar' due to the albums light hearted feel which is a shame because Daniel Dumile is on fire.
The first half of the album is pure party tunes, put any of these songs on in a club or at a party and movement is garanteed, the second half starts to wonder off into pure beats against raps territory and is most satisfying after repeated listens.
