My grime knowledge begins and ends with Dizzee Rascal I'm afraid. The reason I like Grime so much is that it tip's it hat to Reggae and Dub which was a huge influence on Hip-Hop/Rap, yet it is barely acknowledged elsewhere. Grime represents a vocal/musical hybrid that I can appreciate.

Yeah, Dizzee Rascal is one of my favorite garage rap/grime artists. I also like The Streets. Anyone a fan?

You would think. But the mass of people of my age range who buy into it is scary.

I think/hope i have explained in earlier posts why this is NOT British hip hop... well most of the time.
To be honest the scene feels a bit desperate now, like dogs fighting for the last scraps of meat. The meat of mainstream recognition, probably something like processed turkey slices.

Grime peaked in 2004. It was the sets man. That underground lineage of MC culture in the UK- from ragga jungle to garage... getting da shoogz moving. Etc.

Anyway here's a more recent set I have knocking about on mediafire, it's Dizzee Rascal and D Double E (from Dizz's label and pirate legends in their own right, Newham Generals - their album has been 'in progress' since the aforementioned golden days, kind of depressing).

Kool FM Jungle set ft.Rascal, Skibadee, DEE and Fun.rar

They're guesting on a special old skool jungle set on Kool FM with established drum n' bass MC's Skibadee and Fun (yes you read correctly). These guys just kind of stand back and take the piss whenever the grime guys fall behind!

From what I remember it's an amazing set - Raskit can genuinely spit over any kind of beat and just kill it.

Incase there's anybody wondering what the hell 'jungle' is: just early drum n' bass - breakbeat with the melody carried on the bass, danceable as ****. Takes you back about 14 years to better times...

that's the spirit! to be honest I could only think of one Banterer who'd dig such a set *cough*jackhammer*cough* but i have alot of **** floating around on filesharing sites that needs to be made use of.

oh and having listened to it last night i can forewarn that D Double doesn't find his feet for a while; and that there's a small section where somebody trips on a cable or something and the beat channel cuts out. Makes for nteresting listening though, great set if not really a grime one.
