View Full Version : Pick Ten Grime Records

26-10-2004, 11:38 AM
After seeing Simon's great article on a neophyte's guide to grime-


I thought I'd add my own ten (granted, from a position of knowing only about a tenth of the records of most people round here), and ask for more informed opinions on the ten records that have rocked your world since 'I Luv U' blew up.

Sharkie Major - This Ain't A Game (how was this not number one? Oh yeah, it was good.)
Nasty Crew - Cock Back
Dogzilla/Target - My Side of the Story
Roll Deep - Shanghai riddim
Riko - Chosen One
Ruff Sqwad - RU Double F
Lethal B - Forward Riddim
Dizzee - Strings
The Endz - Are You Really From the Endz (all mixes)
Jammer instrumentals on that Deuce magazine CD last year

ruff sqwad- ur love feels
ruff sqwad- move [sometimes called 'headbanger']
davinche + kano- ps + qs
davinche, kano, wiley- baby
wiley- ice cream man
mr wong- orchestra borough
kano + demon- gangsta toys
p-jam + female singer who's name i've forgot + frisco- 'can't hold it in'
eastwood + oddz, 'the coalition'
d double, riko, wiley, trim-'boogey man'
trim + lewi white, 'hugs + kisses'
trim + jammer- 'time's ticking away'
d double's freestyle over the 'slowjamz' instrumental [may be called 'bare different colours'?]
liberty- not sure what this track is called, but it's the one with the female singer going 'we can make loooooove', and liberty goes 'urghh' a lot. mackie used to play it a lot]

that's more than 10, but my mother always said; fuck the rules.

agree with tunes (I know) from above, so 10 others...

Ruff squad ‘danger’
Essentials ‘eyes on you rmx’
Sticky ‘golly gosh’ (wizzbit rmx)
DJ Mondie – straight riddim
Roll Deep (brilliant track on Sunday’s show, mental UR-style riddim with Wiley on top rant ending with the him re-doing the original Roll Deep lyrics)
East Connection ‘wonky’
Jammer ‘destruction vip’
Crazy Titch ‘I can cu’
JME ‘serious’
Fury ‘run guns’

Cool - lots of stuff I haven't even heard of there. That Roll Deep track with the UR-ish riddim sounds amazing, s'pose someone'll catch the name of that soon (that seems half the problem in getting hold of this stuff). I love the way grime is incorporating bits and pieces from anywhere and everywhere, reminiscent of the 'magpie music' aspect of 'ardkore - having just started to pay attention to the scene again after about a year, it's about ten times more exciting now than it seemed back then

nasty crew-take you out
riko-chosen one
roll deep-pick yrself up rmx
shark major-ain't a game
wiley-eskimo/ice rink
highly flammable allstars-charge
lethal b and friends-foward
dizzee rascal/shark major/wiley-i luv u rmx
roll deep-regular
east conection-the one with the horns, can't remember the name of it
ruff squad-lethal injection/pied piper/r.u.f.f.
kano-so sure/ps and qs/vice versa
duurty doogz-hold me down
geeneus-earth warrior

26-10-2004, 02:22 PM
east conection-the one with the horns, can't remember the name of it

we're ready?
i prefer the wiley mix of that, amazing.

26-10-2004, 02:30 PM
yeah we're ready. thats it. thanks. nicky slim ting. the wiley mix was better but it was just eskimo with the we're ready vocals on top so it loses points for originality. there was a hiphop mix too with a shit beat and face from so solid on it.

26-10-2004, 02:37 PM
Reading that reminds me that the Devil's mix of Eskimo was out there - more twisted and therefore better than the original imo

26-10-2004, 03:06 PM

sir and madams,

could someone venture a trackllist for the Slimzee + Blive Mix (july?) on Darksideriddems.com/.org? Actually just the first ten songs would do. I've been blasting this on my subway ride to work, and there is a string of three tracks near the beginning of the mix that just kill me.
