Musical style

Grime music is typified by sparse and minimalist 2-step breakbeats, generally around 130-145 beats per minute, and an aggressive and fast rapping style - often in double time. The lyrics and music combine futuristic electronic elements; and dark, guttural, growling bass lines. In contrast to its more soulful predecessors in breakbeat music, grime features MCs as opposed to singers and has jettisoned the R&B influences of earlier UK garage in favour of brutal beats. Due to its experimental nature and diverse stylistic influences, artists involved in the grime scene initially resisted attempts to classify or pigeonhole the style, resulting in a range of different labels, including sublow, 8bar, and eskibeat. Grime is sometimes associated with dubstep, a similar but largely instrumental genre which also evolved from the early 2000s UK garage scene.[2][3] UK garage (also known as UKG or just garage) refers to several different varieties of modern electronic dance music generally connected to the evolution of house in the UK in the mid 1990s. ...

Origins and development

Roll Deep, A well known British grime crew, perform at the 2006 Love Music Hate Racism festival.

The emergence of grime is intrinsically connected to its origins on UK pirate radio[citation needed], with many performers honing their skills and achieving underground success before approaching the mainstream. Examples of the sound can be detected in the late 20th century, with tracks by So Solid Crew, More Fire Crew's "Oi", and Sticky's "Boo" which featured Ms. Dynamite. This indicated the movement of UK Garage away from its R'n'B and hip-hop influences towards darker themes and sounds. Among the first tracks to be recognised as grime were "Eskimo" by Wiley who was the founder of the "eskibeat" label and "Pulse X" by Musical Mob.

Pitchfork Feature: The Month In: Grime/Dubstep (2241 words)
Within grime’s rich vein of artists and narratives, it might be easy to be drawn in and to overestimate its reach.
Grime on the whole is angry, abrasive, and sonically extreme-- which is both its appeal and its Achilles heel.
Sure on one level the grime narratives suggest the sound is the voice of the most marginalized parts of British society, but on a day-to-day basis it’s also a dense concentration of aggressive alpha males.
