I Love Grime is a 52 track 2CD summary of the ever expanding Grime scene. Bringing together the past present and future of the UK’s fastest evolving musical movement, Rinse presents an expansive collection charting the evolution of the London sound, from its origins as Garage’s raw and reckless little brother all the way through to it’s current status as chart topping commercial steam roller.
Champion of the sound before it so much as had a name, Rinse FM’s status as the sound of young London’s cutting edge has allowed it unprecedented access to classic anthems, the big- gest game changers and those most likely to blow in the near future.
Mixed by the legendary Sir Spyro, DJ for international chart topper Tinchy Stryder and a long standing pillar of the scene and Sian Anderson, a hugely respected DJ and taste maker repre- senting the diverse sounds next generation, the 52 tracks here chart the establishment and growth of Grime from early pioneers such as So Solid Crew and Pay As U Go Cartel; formative figure heads More Fire Crew, Roll Deep & Ruff Sqwad, commercial titans Dizzee Rascal, Wiley & Tinchy Stryder all the way to the scene’s cutting edge with artists such as Kozzie, Faze Miyake and Rinse’s very own P Money, and Royal-T.
