GRIME En los foros de ClubbingSpain se ha abierto un post relativo al Grime / Dubstep / Sublow, el cual espero que a la larga pueda arrojar luz sobre este poco conocido estilo musical.

Grime is musical offshoot of the early 21st century UK Garage scene that developed in London's East End between 2002-2004. In contrast to its more soulful progenitor, Grime can often be dark and aggressive, featuring MCs as opposed to singers and jettisoning the R&B influences that enabled UK Garage to earn mainstream radio support. In contrast, the success of Grime is inseperable from its connection with Pirate radio, with many performers honing their skills and achieving underground success before approaching the mainstream. Grime has roots in both hip-hop and electronic music and is characterised by rapid and rhythmic rhyming over sparse break beats, futuristic bleeps and guttural bass growls. Perhaps due to its experimental nature and diverse stylistic influences, Grime resisted attempts to classify or pigeon-hole it for a long time, but in the past has also gone by the names sublow, 8bar or eskibeat.

Una forma de introducirse en estos sonidos es mediante el recopilatorio publicado por Rephlex, Rephlex presents GRIME, en la contraportada del cual aparece el siguiente texto:

Grime. Sublow. Dubstep... It's Music. Different people call it different things depending on when they discovered it. In the 80s maybe it was House, Techno and Electro. In the 90s it was UKG, Drum & Bass, Breaks or whatever. Now there are so many terms for it that the journalists can't pidgeon-hole it anymore. This is a good thing - it's music. Moody music. Multifunctional multifaceted music created by Humans with Brains, Hearts, Machines Electricity. Music that's great for dancing to in clubs, or submerging yourself within your headphones, your car, your home, wherever. It's instrumental dance music, but it's the perfect form for the best MCs and vocalists. We at Rephlex call it Grime to publicise to the people at large outside of the specialist world of its producers. The pursts might debate the name, but while they do that, crews around the globe are uniting in this strong and fresh dance movement. In this age of information Technology, people are easily able to find real quality that they actually want, without being spoon-fed compromised product. Now is a time of change and the soundtrack is ... GRIME
