For those who are presently unaware, UK’s Grime scene has been bubbling below the radar for quite a while now, and made perhaps its biggest splash yet in 2015, as we’ve seen artists like Skepta, Giggs, Chase & Status, and collectives like the Boy Better Know crew begin to take flight.
Throwing their name in the mix (literally, in this instance) is London duo Elijah and Skilliam, as they give us a new compilation, simply called Grime 2015, that highlights a massive year in the genre.
“There’s been more hype than ever around the artists, music and scene this year than we have ever seen. We wanted to put together something that serves as a good entry point to the vocal side of our music at this point in time. We wanted to toast to a strong 2015 and usher in 2016 letting people know this music isn’t going anywhere for a long time.”, says Elijah.
Featuring nearly 40 emcees, including Frisco, Big Narstie, as well as the aforementioned Skepta, Giggs and more, Grime 2015 boasts the absolute best of the scene, with Elijah and Skilliam sending a strong message regarding what’s to come in the next year and beyond.
