Channel U – Grime Originals Takeover
Upon the return of Channel U and ahead of the release of Against All Odds, a film documenting and celebrating the birth and evolution of Grime, we see a big takeover from Grime Originals.
Led by Grime Originals founder and Major Muzik CEO, Sharky Major. We first hear about how Grime Originals has grown to become such a key organisation in developing and preserving the authentic Grime sound. From humble beginnings in small venues to their own sold out shows and featuring on huge festival line ups, Grime Originals has always stayed true to the culture. Representing all ages and generations, Grime Originals always put-on huge line ups featuring MCs and DJs from both the founding generation of grime as well as the new generation.
With teasers of the upcoming Grime Original Docuseries, previously shown on the Virtual Showcase’s, and the return of Channel U, 2021 is already looking to be a massive year for Grime.
In true Grime Originals fashion, the takeover ends with a weighty set packed with Grime veterans, with DJ Logan Sama on decks, Sharky Major kicks of the set and sets pace before bringing in Bruza, Killa P, Hitman Hyper, Discarda and Doctor, plus New Gen artist, Tommy B.
Setting levels on a live set with a DJ mixing in riddims is one of the foundations of grime. Taking the Genre back to its roots and showing a younger generation real, authentic UK music.
