Five Grime 2.0 Artists You Need to Know

Ready for another grime invasion? This week the U.K.’s Big Dada label puts forth Grime 2.0, a primer on the current state of grime music and Mr. Mitch is one of the artists profiled on the compilation, with his ghostly “Viking” track. “Grime 2.0 is a great representation of the music that’s going on right now,” he says, “’cause it’s not just one kind of grime and it’s broad and there’s so many different strands of the music.” With that in mind, Hive tapped Mr. Mitch to give us an insider’s guide to five bass-infatuated artists from Grime 2.0 to start adding to your playlists. Consider his list your new low-end theory.

1. Slackk

“Slackk can produce some amazing music really and he proves that not all grime has to be hype. I mean, he can produced hype tracks as well, like his track “Shogun Assassin,” but his stuff is melodic and I like the way he uses his melodies and the way he utilizes the square wave which is something that’s in a lot of early grime. He has that lo-fi, early-grime vibe.”
