Grime-The Genre that never stops evolving

In the 18 months that I’ve been away the genre has exploded beyond anything I thought possible. Konicchwa was released, there was grime at the Brits, Stormzy announced a football signing and Wiley and Dizzee shared a stage on the same day. 


Big Narstie, Lady Leshurr, AJ from the Lane are all played on R1 day time and ModeFM/ NTS/ Radar have established themselves as the places to be heard with shows from Boy Better Know, Spooky (even squeezing in a weekly breakfast show) Argue, Slimzee, and AG has moved from Mode to NTS. 

The female presence has grown massively too, there’s more MCs, more DJ’s, more bloggers, more photographers. 

Grime has taken over the festivals.  I don’t mean early slots in little tents I mean Skepta on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, I mean JMEs Tropical having tents up and down the country, Stormzy and Big Narstie on the main stage at Detonate plus many many more. 

Every week I see MCs and DJs in NewYork, New Zealand, Russia, Croatia, Japan, Berlin, Barcelona, Ibiza, Toronto. Grime is truly international. 

The unstoppable Lord Of The Mics team have released clothing, held a live show and collaborated with high end brand phirewire and are looking at their 8th release if they go ahead this year.

The Den has become the place to perform and it’s DJ clashes legendary! 

There has been album releases, tours and the quality of the music just keeps getting better. 

I think people have finally stopped dismissing Grime and I haven’t heard anyone declare “Grime is dead!” For about three years now, the genre has finally envolved and established itself and its many artists as an unstoppable force that no one can dismiss any longer.
