1 January 2015

So what’s been going on this week in the world of UK grime, urban and rap music? Take a look at our favourite picks and releases from the past 7 days.


Rapman- 2014 Wrap Up

2014 was a good year for Rapman, releasing some well received tracks and increasing his fanbase. To kick off the new year he puts his storytelling skills to the the task of rounding up 2o14 – the good, bad and the ugly. Let’s hope 2015 is a good year for Rapman and the entire scene. Check this one out and recap on some of last year’s highlights.

Chip ft. D Double E & Jammer – School of Grime

Brand new year, brand new music from Chip. With the help of pioneers D Double and Jammer, the trio reminisce and assert their authority within the grime scene from the past to present. Just another track amongst the many released recently that show the strength and endless collaboration possibilities within Grime.

TE dness – 7/11

TE isn’t a stranger to putting his own spin on popular tracks, and he’s done it again with Beyonce’s latest release “7/11”. A fun freestyle with bars, bars and more bars. TE is another hot prospect with a potentially big year ahead- keep watching him.

A2-VII: Part Two

A2 is definitely another one to watch as we step into the new year and he’s put out a brand new EP displaying exactly why you should keep an eye out. Already receiving a lot of listens and good feedback across social media, the 7 track project can be added to the already impressive catalogue of releases. From the beginning of the project to the end you’ll be able to recognise the uniqueness in production and style.

Eskimo Dance- Skepta, JME, Jammer, Wiley, Ghetts, Chip, Flirta D, Lil Nasty, So Large & more

Eskimo Dance took place again last weekend, and after what’s been a great year for grime as a musical genre and culture, it’s only fitting some of the scenes biggest names graced the stage at one of the scenes longest running and most well recognised events. In case you missed the footage or just want to watch the madness again- check it out!
