Repercussions #12 “Instrumental Grime”

Stuart Buchanan takes a survey of the instrumental grime scene.

Repercussions Instrumental Grime

Falling out of scenes such as UK garage, hip hop and drum and bass, Grime rose to prominence in the early 2000s, headed by a raft of soon-to-be-famous MCs such as Dizzee Rascal, Tinie Tempah and Tinchy Stryder. Although often dubbed “a London thing”, Grime has spread internationally over the last decade, and its sound has also developed well beyond its roots – coming to a head over the last two years with a new wave of producers creating, what has been broadly dubbed as, ‘instrumental grime’. On this week’s Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan takes a survey of the scene from a number of players including Slackk, Samename, Mssingno, Rabit, Moleskin and Murlo, and investigates Australian connections from producers Strict Face, Arctic and Dellity.
