What about this:

Electronic/simple sounding is actually the style for the most part, it's electronic dance music really, though recently (2008+) the beats have started to develop a bit more. Arguably merged with Hip-Hop tbh. Here is one of the classic Grime tracks that is quite Hip-Hop sounding:

Maybe try OG Season 1, that is a very good album, basically Hip-Hop:

If you have iTunes you can preview the tracks.



tbh, when I first heard Grime G Funk was mainly what I listened to with a bit of Eminem, I think the first track was I Luv U by Dizzee, and I didn't like it. Next ones were Tings In Boots and I think Gunshot Riddim and I didn't like those either. I've included them in the spoiler lol, even for Grime these are simple sounding:

Spoiler for tracks:

I like that track you posted, the only thing I've heard from him before is a verse on a 2Pac album (All Eyez On Me).
Yes I know, I'm not too happy about his ban.

I like the first track it's solid. It sounds pretty culturally rooted with the reggae beat to.

I always wondered about that. Rap in America was always really culturally connected to the soul and funk music they grew up listening to, but grime often seems completely disconnected from the dancehall, ragga and reggae of previous generations. I'm assuming that its kids from West Indies decent that invented grime?

The second track sounds like something I would have to let grow on me, and I like the song Mister Jip posted to, so I'm coming around, but I'm officially too old to be cool now, just so you know, lol.

Some are Caribbean descent (Wiley/Kano), some are African descent (Dizzee/Ruff Sqwad) and some are Brits (Mike Skinner/Logan Sama). Probably more African I'd say, but in terms of sound I think the Dancehall & Ragga influences are noticeable (less so now), but probably more noticeable in Dubstep, especially the early stuff.

Gotcha! Well when I have some downtime I'm going to go to lastFM and research the big names in Grime to see if I can get into the genre, cheers.

Ps: Hobgoblin is a wicked beer. We get it on import here in Canada

I have finally had a breakthrough in Grime, it took me awhile but genre seems to be in the zenith of its popularity and the stuff I am hearing is just fantastic music!!!

It's a new breath of life into the genre of hip hop,which I feel has been badly needed. It's too bad the record industry collapsed, otherwise some of these artists would probably be as big as Massive Attack and Portishead were in the 90's over here in the US (abliet different listening artists)

Probably all well known names, but I love these tracks, I've been into Skepta for awhile now...





Lady Leshurr is F'n talented, & hot, Grrrrrrr!





I understand Stormzy has become quite big in the UK



I have no idea who is rapping here, I just love the video when he lights the microphone on fire.



Anyone else want to post some killer grime songs, please do!!!

She's bloody talented. I think she's sounds better than a lot of the artists currently topping the pop charts. I hope someone gives her a shot to make it big.

She had a record deal about six years ago but I'm not sure what happened with that - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1o2VnRr0lts

I know she just signed one for her album so she's definitely moving in the right direction. She's doing well building her reputation and buzz but she needs to put out a full release that is a bit different to what other people have done.

I hope she makes it, she deserves it more than anyone imo.
