Good morning lovely readers, if you are feeling the cold like me, and have been resembling the Michelin Man every time you leave the house due to excessive layering, how about a little something to liven up your ipod during travelling times? Those lovely people over at Defenders Ent have decided to release a follow up to the massive This Is UK Grime Vol 1, which bought you the most complete collection of grime you could ever ask for and remained in the itunes top 100 Hip Hop/Grime for over ten months.
Vol 2 has two CD’s bringing you the best of real Grime music, the only genre that we can all officially claim as uniquely British. CD one is full of old school classics from the likes of Tinie Tempah, Wrethc 32, Tinchy Stryder, Wiley, Lethal Bizzle and Skepta. The second CD brings you bangers from the artists who are currently making waves in the underground scene, such as P Money, Kozzie, D Double E, Marger, Scruffizer and more. This compilation is the perfect blend of old and new, giving the listener a journey through the history of one of the most exciting genres to ever come out of the UK, one which seems to be garnering all the attention and critical acclaim that previous UK Urban genres failed to achieve. Old meets new, mainstream meets underground, if you are a fan of good music, This Is UK Grime Vol 2 is the only CD you’ll need all winter, and as an added bonus, when you listen to the music you won’t be able to stand still which will keep you warm and save you a fortune on thermals, even if you do end up looking like the nutter at the bus stop.
This Is UK Grime Vol 2 is available from all good music outlets from 7th November.
