Statik - Grindie Vol.1...

Published by Warren Dell under on Tuesday, May 02, 2006
Indie kids with their drainpipe jeans and new era hoodrats unite!!! Grindie is here!!! It's like the ska movement all over again.

One thing I've noticed about the grime scene is that there can be too much hate from within when there is alot of love from people outside it. There is more chance of a gig in Manhatten than there is anywhere else other than London but with a new project from top producer Statik he's aiming to unite scenes and bring the music to a much wider scene. Grindie volume 1 is a mixtape with his remixes and snippets of the latest indie and grime tracks. At 65 tracks long it can be frustrating when you hear something good and it ends so quickly, but there is no doubting the idea is a good one. Already the music press have taken note with even the indie bible NME running a feature this week on the mixtape. It seems to have gone down well with promoters too with Lethal B and The Mitchell Brothers sharing space on the bill at the traditionally indie only Camden Crawl. Statik too has his own Indie Loves Grime night coming up at the Koko, Camden in the nearest future. Whether this will be just a short term faze or it will leave a legacy like Ska music is uncertain at the moment, but with people in both scenes embracing one another the next few months promise some interesting sounds to come out. Hit up the linkage below for places to download this much sought after collection and keep an eye out for grindie tracks and remixes from The Rakes, Fire Camp & Pete Doherty and The Holloways soon come...

It is useful to try everything in practice anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)
