2stepfan said:My point exactly. I'd like to know how well the Grime / Grime 2 compo's sold (MMS?). I think there's a ready market for such a compilation at the 5,000 units level. Whether that would work economically depends on advances artists require -- but I think there's big untapped demand for grime. I mean, my wife likes all the grime I play her (more the grinding stuff than the sweet stuff or the minimal mysoginist rap stuff).
Something, in fact, like Logan's recent mix, which is brilliant, not all to my taste and I wasn't too sure about the voiceovers but as a product it's excellent. It should be released properly -- there's almost a moral necessity to do so.
there are the bossman mix cds - they're decent - i got the 2nd one in warpmart with the first one free.
as for the grime/grime 2 they did around the 5,000 units level the first one better than the second when i finished there.
looking forward to the rinse packs - they are looking exciting.
i'm not sure if there is a big untapped market for grime - on the whole it's fast aggressive trebbly and raw and it's not rock music - - ie it's electronic music with almost rocky sonics - it's almost anomaly in some sensess - gonna take people ages to get used to and also to get over the whole sosolid/guns/negativity thing that still associates itself with this sort of music.
