yes i know, but your writing style suggested that you may be a gangsta from NY, so i got confused. ;)

I wasn't aware there was one!

Where I live is urban, multi-cultural, but not rough at all. Sweet, laidback, cosy Sheffield...

Not sure what part of my post suggested I was a gangster from NY? :confused:
All that fresh air up on Ilkley Moor must of done something to your brain :D

Im from Leeds 16. I have been up Otley a few times but there isnt much to do up that way in comparison to where I live so I tend not to stray that far out.

Didnt know there was any Grime fans in Otley though! Big Up !

possibly the 'good to see some heads from my home city reppin' on here!' and the replies, but i was only joking.

i used to live in chapel allerton but got out when you couldn't move for trendy bars and 4x4s. otley/ilkley are rather different to the places i've lived in for the past 15 years.

i am no expert in grime, but i like a lot of what i've heard. prefer wizzbit to be honest.

I live in Burley, opposite YTV (where I work, for my sins). Used to live in New Wortley for a bit, in a proper grimey council tower block, full of mentally ill people and bagheads shooting up in the stairwells. Also, was in a band called Baby Food, kinda electro-punk shizzle, although we've just split up (if anyone's arsed, go to www.baby-food.org and you can DL our tunes on a posthumous tip...we were in Dazed & Confused and everything..hehe). Now doing a project called Yes Boss. Do bits of writing...column in Sandman, used to work for Leeds Guide too. Loving grime, indeed have always loved new, exciting music. Was raving back in 1990, used to be into hardcore punk etc, prolly similar musical history to a lot of cats on here.

Leeds though....daaaaamn. It's all bassline house or really shit indie...well there is good stuff happening here, but there's a lot of sheep mentality going on...get me?

anyway, nuff of the life story. Hi everyone.

when i was living in leeds it was all about iration steppas - west indian centre would have surely suffered from some structural damage by now! huge b-lines

i lived in ls6 for near two years or so, anyone here from hydepark, little london, chapel town, hare hills?

Sub Dub is the place to be!

I know Simon Scott and Mark Iration well. I have been getting few Dubstep bits in for Si down at Tribe Records. Got all three of the DMZ releases in there and they selling wicked so that shows there is an interest out there. I just got to keep up the education & stay consistant with it!

I'm playing down at The Faversham on 18th April for a Charity event me and some others from college have organised so if you want to hear the very very latest beats from the likes of Mark One, Oris Jay, Loefah, N Type, Macabre Unit and loads more fresh material I suggest you get down there! It's going to be a strictly educational set so expect the freshest DJ & selection up North! You have been warned!

yeah man! i used to shop down at tandoori when it was in the corn exchange, simon and his bro are safe, i am good friends with tom who works at tribe as well, and i travelled thousands of kms when mark and dennis toured just last year, but the steppas are well worth it


as for ls6 being over, yeah well i spose it was always gonna go that way, where is ls4 though?

Yeah I have recently got talking with Tom and have got some DMZ bits in for him as well as Skreams latest release which I will be getting for him soonish. Hes a safe guy seems to be feeling the sounds Im on which is all good! Im from LS16, Leeds Born and Bread. Make sure you check out the top floor and basement in Tribe for latest Dubstep/Grime releases. There isnt much in there at the moment but Im working on Si to get more bits through for him. The more people that go in asking him for the stuff the better because he is then going to know there is a demand for it. I have all the links to get the right tunes in there so I just need people to buy the tunes now and then we moving!

Leeds has a very promising Grime/Dubstep future I know it!

yeah man i know it , i was staying down that way for a few months, just off the green, there was also a little cheap chippie there i was fond of, run by like real homely women, and a barber who once gave me a haircut that made me look like a leeds united hooligan, very funny , big up burley squad

Think that one's down at Rehab. Might be missing it too unfortunately, looks like a pretty big line up.

All you Leeds Heads need to know that Crash records have got some Grime in. Check out the G-Hop Volume 2 compilation. Its got some hot tracks on:

D Double E (Signal), No Lay, Kano, Kyza, Taz, Bashy, Flo Dan, JME.... Its all big. Bargin price too.

Was thinking maybe all us from Dissensus should get together if there's another event on soon. Maybe if there's another Rampant happening or whatever. Did anyone reach Distinction's thing down at the Fav?

Yeh its called Slap n Tickle. I have played at this event before in the past when Harvey from So Solid was supposed to be coming up. Aint been to one since. Not really on the bad vibes and war-ing so doubt I will be passing by. Unfortunately from past experiences I have noticed that quite a few of the acts this promoter has booked in the past havent turned up or are replaced with smaller acts on the night. Which in my opinion aint on at all.

Do you get tunes in for Crash? I could get DMZ and ITAL bits in there for you if you wanted? These releases dont go through distributors as Mala and Loefah do it themselves.

The Faversham was wicked man. Got roughly over 200 people in there real mixed crowd, good vibes, good atmosphere and thats what its all about in my opinion! Not sure if any of you lot made it down but I have noticed a few "regular" people turning up at events hosting Grime so things are moving slowly but surely.

Im working on something else for the future so keep an eye out for that!
