Trim: Soul Food

I don’t know about you but I think there’s a huge grime renaissance going on right now. Alex Bk Bk has moved over to grime from dubstep almost completely and as you may have noticed, John Eden has been blasting it (a few years too late, but I always told him he’d get into it eventually!). Key to this are the Roll Deep CD Rules and Regulations (which you MUST have by now surely, it’s amazing) and Trim’s Soul Food volume one mix tape. It’s taken me a while to get into it but it’s a real grower and his laid back, spooky yet comic delivery is utterly captivating. There are a good seven or eight tracks that are just brilliant – even though I don’t like the skits and the tributes much, and even though the tracks could often be longer, there’s loads of deep tunes on here. Liar, Liar, In the Ghetto, Wot, and But I Still are just superb.
