Narrated by its originators THIS IS GRIME is the first oral history of the most influential and inventive musical culture produced in the UK in the last two decades.
From the Inside Flap
From the depths of Bow E3 in the early 2000s, the voice of a generation emerged.
It was dark, it was angry, it was loud, and it was unapologetic. It was provocative and fiercely independent.
It was the brittle sound of disillusionment, resentment and despair, but also the voice of hope.
This is Grime.
Written by Hattie Collins, an authority on Grime who has documented the scene since its early days, and accompanied by stunning images shot by award-winning photographer Olivia Rose solely for this book, THIS IS GRIME gives unrivalled access to the artists and influencers who have created and cultivated the genre - artists including Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, JME, Kano, Stormzy and Novelist.
Telling their stories and the story of this musical culture in tandem, THIS IS GRIME is the first oral and visual documentation of the scene through the eyes of the people at its centre.See all Product description
