Seems to me that cheapness was somehow essential to grime's spirit in its golden era. The way it was made on fruity loops (and playstation?), the way it was played on pirate radio, the way it was filmed. That sort of DIY spirit. Of course, nowadays DIY can be really slick.

Maybe that cheapness accounts for some of that 'pushing against its own limits' spirit too. It was inherently less assimilable to the mainstream.

Exactly. It's hard for me to accept this.

That channel is really good. Specially for garage where you get things you don't see elsewhere like the magic fm sets etc
