Grime’s second wave – Mixed by Elijah & Skilliam

Hip-Hop Rap 140bpm Grime

To accompany our essays reflecting on the past decade, we’ve commissioned a series of mixes to put an aural spin on the story of the 2010s.

Britain’s rap revolution began with grime’s second wave, when the mainstream finally took note of the UK’s most inventive scene of the century because it stopped chasing and went back to its roots. As the pair behind Butterz and Rinse FM residents from 08-15, Elijah & Skilliam are uniquely placed within both the early pirate radio era and the scene’s recent explosion to tell this story.

Strap in as they take us on a journey through the first rumblings of grime’s resurgence right up to its current chart-topping dominance.
