Of late there’s been a sly trend towards to the current cartel of Grime YG’s seeking out noughties club classics and remixing them into certi Grimey instrumentals – harking back to the old skool days of ‘Bareface Bootlegs’. With Whackeye and Mal Dubz being the most notable contributors to the sound in this direction of late.
Now altough this is a bit of a new trend among two-two young gunners in the Grime game, man like OG Slew Dem DJ Spooky have been on dis RnB/Classic Remix ting from early. And given the levels, its only right couple edits were included in this post.
So here’s ‘5 Cold 00’s Club Classic Grime Remixes:
SPOOKY – I NEED A GIRL PT 2
SPOOKY – MY BOO
SPOOKY – LOCKED UP
WHACKEYE – IGNITION
MAL DUBZ – CRY ME A RIVER
MAL DUBZ – GOTTA GET THRU THIS
From the archive throwback refixes of Spooky, to the new skool remixes of Grime’s young blood beatmakers, this area of creativity in the Grime scene is particularly exciting and appealing to me and many others I’m sure. Not just for the obvious nostalgia factor for the heads of my generation who actually remember when these tunes came out, but as another exciting dimension of what is still proving to be a flourishing music scene, culture and artform.
