I love grime but I haven’t done that many grime mixes. I suppose the biggest one so far is the Grime in the Dancehall mix I did with John Eden for blogariddims. That was back in 2008 and not long after, I did this mix… and then never sent it to anyone other than John. I always thought it was alright but could’ve been just a bit better. Anyway, I’ve gone back to it and it sounds fine TBH so I’m happy to put it up, especially since I’ve got a few more grime mixes I want to get into. I mean, I still haven’t put up a mix with my favourite grime instrumental – in fact my favourite electronic record of all time – Big$hot’s Glitch. Trust me, that tune destroys the dance every time.
So this is a mix of mostly mid- to late-period grime, some instrumentals and some vocal cuts, with an emphasis on banging percussive FOWARD-ness. It’s only half an hour and I can’t remember what all the tunes are but they’re all good. I think you’ll like it.
