Big On The Roads

Bethan Elfyn and Radio Ed over at BBC Radio 1 have proven themselves once more as purveyors of quality music with the inclusion of Collision’s ‘Grime Time Remix’ which they came across on this very same blog (was posted a few days ago as R Dott, Young C & Fusion). You can listen again to the show for the next week over at their BBC Introducing page it also features Yo Majesty and a track from Dirty Secretz which features JLD, a young rapper who I actually remember jamming with at an awards ceremony some years ago. If you’ve not heard her yet here’s a video from last year for her track ‘Big On The Road’ which features Kristi and J Bone. All I believe are from the South Wales area.

Which just reminded me of another MC - Asher, who I remember from years ago as a wicked little singer who then became a heavy Grime MC / Producer. He’s also from South Wales (Pil in Newport to be exact) and I once saw him walk into a room full of emcees (and all their crew) from Grangetown and Butetown in Cardiff on their home turf and along with his brother Barrington battle them all and win. Here’s the video for his track ‘Big On Da Roads’ (you can see why my memory was jogged) with Sick Made Man and Skywalker that came out a couple of years back and is an evil Grime track indeed.

ps. Just found out I'm warming up for Bonde Do Role tonight at 10 Feet Tall in Cardiff... bigFUN indeed, come along if you're in the area. Will let you know how it all goes tomorrow.
