- Elijah & Skilliam have put together two discs highlighting the vocal side of grime.
Butterz has put together a new compilation called Grime 2015.
Though Elijah & Skilliam's label has been credited with starting the instrumental grime revival around the turn of the decade, Grime 2015 will seek to highlight the genre's vocal side, according to FACT. "There's been more hype around the artists, music and scene this year than we have ever seen," the label says. "We wanted to put together something that serves as a good entry point to the vocal side of our music."
The two-CD collection pulls together tracks from the past few years, and features a wide range of prominent grime MCs, from Skepta to JME to Double E, Riko Dan, Wiley, Kano and P Money. And on the production tip, the compilation is equally diverse, including appearances from Plastician, Pinch & Mumdance, Rabit, Terror Danjah, Zomby and Butterz staples like Swindle and Royal-T.
"There are nearly 40 different MCs represented on it and is what we have been playing in the clubs across the last 18 months at shows up and down the UK and beyond, a lot of the time alongside the MCs themselves," the label continue. "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."
