This is great interview with co-founder of boiler rooms, bpm and is filmed/hosted by Intruders TV. I love what their doing right now over at boiler rooms, i'll be documenting and capturing over the summer, scenes, similar to the boiler room. This will be captured in a disarray and candid manner, through still and motion picture. The whole laid back approach to their nights out which doubles up with the originality of it all is what has caught the attention of so many. They are raking in the largest acts around, Jamie xx, James Blake, Mount Kimbie, Hessle records, Young Turks etc.

I lock in every Tuesday and when ever else they stream because there's always a good set and a good vibe, it really reminds me of is Deja Vu FM & Rinse FM and how they had such strong holds on a scene. Rinse recently gained a radio license (think its 106.8?) after a long time petitioning, so their probably one of the longest running pirate radio stations, for about 15 years! used to love the stella sessions. Deja Vu was slightly different, it focus more on the grime scene, they'd host clash's, such as the most famous Titch and Dizzie rascal and general long sets with crews like Meridian, Movement, Neckel Camp, More Fire, Slew Dem, Roll Deep (pretty shit), East Connection, Newham Generals and OT Crew, thought i'd name the main ones lol. Anyways the grime scene, to me, Died in around 07 which i think is due to funky house, i'll say no more. 

So boiler Rooms have really capture my eye and i feel pretty motivated through their rise in the music scene! I've always wanted to Document in a journalistic style the evolution of the grime scene but my interest in photography was just a little to late. The new sounds we're hearing today have really grabbed me and feel i'm more into music than my fucking photography degree, Going to be buying some cdj's hopefully in the next month or so? I can just about mix so thought why not, everybody else is! I'm a sheep i know.

I will be doing a blog post on Grime with some of my favorite instrumentals and freestyles, i'll also incorporate some how grime into the EYEZDOWN forthcoming sets, sometimes you need some angry bars.
