Default Grime recommendations

This is quickly becoming my favorite genre. Lately I've been jamming Akala, Milanese, and Ghislain Poirier. Who are some other guys/groups I should check out?

ps: Akala's Freedom Lasso might be my favorite album of 2007.

I honestly can't describe it; I know it when I hear it. Just check out those artists and you'll get an ear for it. If anything see if there's a Wiki article on it

Grime & - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The only grime artists I know are the popular ones, Sway, Kano and Dizzee Rascal.......Wiley is another one......I think they classify The Mitchell Brothers as grime also but they seem more like R&B

Best explanation from me? British Hip Hop without an American influence. There is dub/reggae/skank beats permeating through the music. I really like Dizzee Rascall, but there is tons more out there. Unfortunately it's a genre I'm not hugely mad on.
