Praise be, episode 5 of the BIMM : Inside the Music Industry podcast is upon us. Grime is huge, I think we can agree on that. Stormzy, Skepta, Wiley, Dizzee et al have dominated the UK music scene for years, so this week we are talking to Hattie Collins, who was there from (nearly) the start and has documented the inexorable rise of Grime.
Hattie is Contributing Editor at ID Magazine, wrote the book ‘This Is Grime’ and has long been a key figure in the UK Hip-Hop scene. In todays chat Jen and Hattie cover everything from music, race, class, gender, appropriation, privilege and Duran Duran (obviously). Really interesting, really informative. get your ears on it.
