If you like your brand of Grime real grimy (I mean dirtee stank grimy), then DJ Semtex’s Grimewave Album hosted by D Double E, is a must have for your collection. This compilation showcases the best tracks from a genre that has evolved faster than the average grime tracks BPM.
Masterfully mixed by DJ Semtex, features include Lethal B, Roll Deep, Dizzee Rascal, Sway, Jammer and D Double E amongst others. Balancing classic rave joints such as ‘Stand up Tall’, alongside Channel U favourites: ‘Murkle Man’ and original hype tunes like Lethal B’s Pow; this CD caters for every mood.
