    Ah, I'm not investing... not this week at any rate...

    ... next question: who are candidates for releasing such a compilation? Is Relentless still going?

    Yep, they've just made a pigs ear of the Roll Deep album/singles. I can't think of a worse label to get a decent grime album together.

    Shake a Leg is Radio 1 A list and the album has sold over 30,000 copies. not that bad a start...

    I have been trying to get a decent grime comp out for the last year or so, the majors don't want to know.

    It's all about setting up a compilation through a decent independant.

    Shake a Leg is an awful record. It's not a great start when you get openly laughed at by Chris Moyles and compared to novelty records. The tracks that made the album were a naked attempt by Relentless to cross over, ignoring the fact that the two albums from the scene that have done the best (i.e. both Dizzee albums) took the opposite approach. Considering the talent in that studio, and some of the tracks they made, the product offered being offered to the public is weak. That's Relentless' fault.

    30,000 is no great shakes. Two-bit indie bands like the Kaiser Cheifs lick that before breakfast. With those sales you'd get dropped at a major quicker than you can say "when do i start recording the second albu...?".

    I think that this would make sense.

    Afterall - the grime scene has been built around emcee's spitting over instrumentals live on radio and in clubs. Recorded tracks came later.

    Maybe Disc 2 could be some instrumentals, with some vox laid down over the top by some big emcees.

    Shake a Leg (which is shit, yes) was made by Roll Deep last summer, a long time before any major got involved. initially Island/Universal were going to sign them, but when they got cold feet, Relentless came in.

    The released Relentless album, bar it's final track selection details and sample re-records by people like Jennna G, was very similar to the one handed to Universal almost a year before.

    the album's direction was Roll Deeps' decision, not Relentless'.

    OK. Relentless are capable but perceived to be flawed. Any others who could be trusted to get this out the door?

    Kinda shame Dizzee isn't a DJ... could do with a name on the front of it. (Hence my not entirely unserious Westwood suggestion... does anyone know how well that Crunk compo sold?)

    And they chose the singles?

    OK, if that's true I take back what I said about Relentless.

    jus a rascal is too hip-hoppy for me personally, maybe something like give u more would be good for a dizzee inclusion (or his ice rink vocal even).

    For Dizzee, I think I'd go with Trapped or Give You More- something that wasn't on the albums. definately have Tinchy's Underground on there, and probably the When I'm Ere wiley remix for the roll deep track. NASTY's In da place?

    also feeling the idea of having a second disc of instrumentals with new MCs doing vocals.

    Here's the tracklisting for a "intro-to-grime" comp I did for a mate recently:

    so sure freestyle - Wiley
    colder - Trim
    serious - JME
    gangster toys - demon / kano
    When I'm Ere (Wiley Remix) - Roll Deep
    all day long - Roachee & Ruff squad
    anger management - P Jam feat D Double
    Chillin' - Ruff Squad
    Get Out - Bruza, D Double E, Kano & Demon-
    state your name - The essentials
    singalong - Crazy titch
    sidewinder - Ruff squad & roll deep
    the set -Statik
    srewface - Tinchy Stryder
    underground - Ruff squad
    vexed - Dizzee Rascal
    P's And Q's - Kano
    Destruction - Jammer
    Grime - D Double
    Dead That - Riko & Godsgift

    Also, while we're back at the 'why grime hasn't blown' debate - something struck me recently .... grime's most talented artist (Dizzee) and best its crossover artist (The Streets) were ready and cherry-picked up before the scene had even found its legs....so from "the mainstream's" point of view, it already had what it needed, with no ongoing need to dig any deeper into the scene.

    In normal circumstances you would expect these premuim artists to emerge when the given scene is in a greater stage of maturity, and the mainstream would normally have to back several horses to find the ones they could cash in on. For grime though, it all happened dead early.

    Just a thought...
