I've been really into him this week, I think he's really good. I listened to his three albums - all really good, though the first seems the best for me, despite its weak production. Math and English is really interesting as well, very open minded and with that big bass sound - fantastic. It got me into grime / UK rap as well, so I'm discovering it at the moment.

Any other into him? (I bet so...)

It's a cliche to say this, but while I quite like a lot of Grime stuff I hear, I do find it difficult differentiating between artists. I have a handful of compilation CDs and can rarely tell when one group finishes and another starts. As a style it seems quite closed, allowing little space to move within.

he admits that he went with his record labels wishes and made his sound more commercial. if this was a rock artist we'd have shunned him.

he's okay. that's it. the fact my chavvy sister likes it put's me right off.

Anyone liking the ratchet is more than welcome to sofaspace in Glice mansions for the rest of time.

Not that his last two albums have been much cop, but he's pretty alright whatever the weather.

Grime's had a resurgence the last year or so, by my DJ/ 'scene' mates' accounts. For whatever that means. I'm still waiting for the Wire article on skag disco. Actually, the truth of the matter is that I want someone other than my housemate to call the genre 'skag disco', because the 4 12"s he's got of it are amazing.

his first album was really worthwhile but since then i think he's had good singles but not much else thats grabbed my attention. I dont particularly know nor care where any "new" "resurgence" "scene" is. If the hot new thing was bullshit when i was 14, then its probably bullshit now.

I want to like Grime... I'm pretty well-versed in hip hop due to an underground phase in my late-teens so I've been looking for something fresh in that relative vein to come along and rekindle that romance. it won't be Grime, though. I just can't get into this stuff (even if Def Jux does co-sign Dizee).

His new album is so fucking terrible it hurts. Worst thing is that this track with Tiesto isn't even the worst. Atrocious.

I think Showtime is better than Boy In Da Corner.
The third one wasn't too bad either. But that new one is one of the most awful things I've heard all year.

Well, at the very least, Fix Up Look Sharp is one of the best singles of the decade.

Love Boy in da corner. Don't care for the 2 following albums, haven't listened to the last one.

I'd like to enjoy more things in grime, but what I've listened to outside BidC is just meh to my ears (just like in dubstep outside Burial). Recs are welcome.

grime-wise, I've only heard Dizzee and The Streets. And in both cases I just didn't really get it.
