It's been over a decade since the East London sound appeared. After some quiet years, the genre has bounced back and grown into something that reaches beyond its early borders. Legends like Skepta and Wiley are achieving their best chart position in years, and a new wave of young producers like Preditah and Spooky are taking the sound in new directions often incorporating the dubstep and trap production styles from the USA. Explore grime and the rebirth of this influential and resilient UK genre.
