Universal Beat | UK grime anyone?


Victor Ezenwoko

Helloooo East Lansing! And of course everyone around the universe!

Instead of my usual posts about African music, I decided to focus on another genre I love, UK grime! I find the grime genre (said to have originated early in the 21st century) to be so intriguing. It’s sound is said to be a cross between different genres like Dancehall, Hip Hop, and UK Garage, but still possesses a completely unique sound.

Some of my top grime artists include Chipmunk and Skepta.

With all that being said, your girlfriend’s favorite DJ, DJ 6Foot7 would like to present Krept & Konan.

The UK based grime/hip hop duo recently dropped an album, The Long Way Home, which would have anyone falling in love with the grime genre. Feel free to look the album up!
