    Suggestions for instrumentals,

    DJ Oddz - Strung Out
    Macabre Unit - Lift Off
    Plasticman - Cha

    I think Eskimo could still cut it too, don't you?

    Not only could it cut it, but it really needs to be on there and I'm shocked (shocked, I tell you!) that it hasn't been mentioned yet. Eskimo is too important a track to be left off NTWICGrime vol. 1

    And I say I Luv U is as well.

    And re: points made up thread about grime thinking it's bigger than it is, someone needs to convince the producers and MCs that this sort of comp is crucial for the development of the scene and that they should start thinking about how not making quite as much right now could make them a lot more later on.

    Chris Moyles laughing at a record is the only seal of approval I care about from radio 1. If it isn't one of his close showbiz pals on vocals, pretty much everything gets laughed at or mocked.

    Shake A Leg was a hit record on pirate radio before any majors were involved. The underground loved it.

    And as I mentioned previously, labels won't do a compilation because there is guaranteed profit in other ventures, rather than risking putting money into an unproven genre.

    When there is a Grime number 1 then people will see numerous compilations. Until then it isn't viable within the narrow minded accounting departments' vision of investment.

    My cd will be out in independant stores at the start of November. Feel free to buy that if you want a proper grime compilation cd.

    So how did this happen in jungle/Drum and bass?

    Was there ever a UK number 1 DnB record?

    Raves being held several times a month attracting several thousand people at 20 a head and thriving vinyl sales lends itself to having people within the industry who can afford to fund such projects themselves.

    Note 2 things which are not existent in Grime.

    Wow, deja vu... I'm just reading "Commodify Your Dissent" (collected articles of the Baffler) - it seems as if us hipsters are fulfilling the role capitalism wants us to in 2005 just as in 1995...

    Perhaps I'm confusiing the nature of the endeavor, but wouldn't a "Now That's What I Call Grime" include even more obvious songs? And _every_ grime novelty song ever. I don't think it'd be too discerning

    Lady Sovereign, "Cha Ching"
    Donae'o, "My Philosophy"
    Dizzee Rascal, "Dream"
    Roll Deep Crew "The Avenue"
    Lethal Bizzle, "Forward Riddim"
    Shystie, "Step Back"
    Wiley, "Wot U Call It?"
    Jammer, "Destruction VIP"
    Essentials, "Headquarters"
    Terror Danjah, "Cock Back"
    D Double "Serious"
    Kano "Ps and Qs"
    Riko "Critical"
    Jammer, "Murkle Man"
    Bearman, "Drinking Beer"
    Streets, "Fit But You Know It"
    Skream "Request Line"
    Tinchy Stryder, "Underground"

    and something sortof wrong, like "Almighty Father"

    def. "sidewinder" that song is too sick, plus it's got bits of other tracks in it...
    also, "underground" is nasty as well...

    no one said anything by Lethal B (or have i not read the whole thread yet?)

    i know "pow" is really played out, but it's a monster track, maybe "no" instead? or even "uh oh", as that's more a grime type beat...

    for instros, i would think about the following:

    the creeper- danny weed
    golly gosh- sticky
    jon e. cash- war
    piano madness- terror danjah
    anything by wiley

    For the kickoff of our new grime monthly I did a sort of "grime anthems" set, since the majority of people around here aren't anywhere near familiar with the genre other than a little bit of Dizzee or whatever. Anyway, my tracklist:

    Roll Deep - When I'm 'Ere
    Lethal B - Pow!
    Wiley - Eskimo
    Skepta - DTI
    Kano - Boys Luv Girls
    Dizzee Rascal - Stand Up Tall
    Musical Mob - Pulse-X
    Pay As You Go - Know We
    Wiley - Wot Do You Call It?
    Kano - Ps & Qs
    Medasyn - The Battle
    Terror Danjah - Cock Back
    Dizzee Rascal - I Luv U
    Mo Fire Crew - Oi!
    Wiley - Pies
    Vex'd - Thunder

    Cut out the first and last track and I'd say those are my nominations plus a few that have already been mentioned.

    General Levy alongside the M-Beat, the world is in trouble!

    I know "Incredible" went Top 10, not sure if it ever hit #1.

    "Oi!" hit #8, right?
