An 11 minute grime track from 1 artist has got the whole scene up in raptures tonight, after it was aired for the first time by Logan on his Kiss 100 show. The name on every one’s lips is Durrty Goodz.

Has he called for the whole scene? Who cares? This track is a madness! He switches the flow up so many times it will have you questioning if this really is a battle as the title would suggest; Battle Hype. Listen out for some of the familiar flows he mimics.


Props to HypeFrank

Lupe Fiasco took his promotional campaign for new album Lasers to France this week.

On his birthday he visited Generations 88.2 radio station and dropped a fly freestyle alongside French rapper Danny Dan; as ever a real freestyle without the aid of a Blackberry or iPhone. Lupe was rewarded with a birthday cake for his efforts!

Another day and another big mix from the man of the moment; Jamie xx. Everything this guy touches turns to gold. He even manages to sample the Countdown theme tune in a grime mix without looking like a complete twat! How is this possible, you ask? Some say he is half mortal, half badman.

Listen to his grimey mix from Mistajams Radio 1Xtra show on Tuesday night, with the Countdown theme in all it’s glory, below.

Fresh from blowing the roof off at Brixton Academy on Saturday evening for the NME Awards Tour; Skream, Benga and Artwork popped in to see Trevor Nelson in the 1Xtra studios and were kind enough to give a live performance of their song ‘The Bug’, taken from their debut album Magnetic Man.

Below you can see footage of the performance; a fascinating insight, as they piece the song together as if it were a puzzle. Technology these days!

As SME mentioned earlier, Jamie xx dropped into Radio 6 Music on Sunday evening and took over the 6 Mix.

Unsurprisingly, he delivered a gem of a mix which features everything from his collaboration tracks with Gil Scott-Heron, 70’s Soul Tracks, UK Garage beats and Grime from the likes of Roll Deep.

You can listen to his crazy cool set below, courtesy of the wonderful iPlayer.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
