Ngl, it’s pretty whack. Disappointed as D Double is one of my favourites


TheNeatest

Yeah it was weak. Roll Up was so good. Really feel Double pushed the mould with that. The beat's sick. But then the EP, other than the Chip feature, wholly forgettable.

Grime needs a new saviour. The pioneers aren’t doing anything to keep it alive. If anything, they’re helping to destroy it by constantly releasing non-Grime music & following trends. Not that they have to ONLY release Grime of course, but that’s not the point lol. Manga’s the new Godfather of Grime now. He’s one of the people that’s been keeping it alive for years now IMO

We can't only count on olders. They helped grime for years anyway. The best that they can do is helping youngers. Like janaya said grime need olders and youngers at the same time.


IAmAGoddd

Yeah that’s true I guess. And she’s right. Where did Janaya say that, is it from an interview?


Keyfatal

Nah she said that on twitter

The pioneers don't need to stick grime at all. Most of the pioneers were mc'ing on different styles before grime so grime is just another stepping stone. I also feel like D Double has spoken about this enough too. Are you a musician/creative? Sticking to one style gets stale very quickly.


d_double_e_bot

That's very original, never heard that from another individual


IAmAGoddd

That’s true, you’re right. I’m not a musician/creative but I did used to make music & play instruments back in the day, I’d love to start again one day (or work in the industry somehow) but I keep procrastinating lol. Did D Double say that in an interview? And true, sticking to one style does get stale so I understand why people change, I just feel like Grime MC’s making non-Grime music is just ruining the genre in the long run, not helping to keep it alive. If a Grime MC put out a Drill album for example, and they acknowledge it’s Drill, I wouldn’t really have a problem with that, my problem is with the MC’s making songs with different genres but still claiming it’s Grime music purely because they’re a “Grime MC”. That’s not how it works

Jackuuuum

Head get mangled then dangled


d_double_e_bot

Head get mangled then dangled, to the side just like I wear my Kangol


999Wrld999Scouse

Mostly drill but that’s what sells now I suppose


TheNeatest

Does it even sell these days? Whole genre's becoming a bit cringe I feel


999Wrld999Scouse

I mean it’s all over the radio, mainstream stations too. I’m not a big fan personally but it seems to be having massive mainstream success atm


BlazeZootsTootToot

Good songs but kinda disappointing. Jakuum is one of my fav albums but his last projects haven't been hitting as hard Not sure if he's doing this drill thing because it sells or because he actually likes it. I wish he'd do more grimey stuff

d_double_e_bot

That's mmuuee muuue


Keyfatal

What do you think of the ep so far ? Found it a bit samey in terms of beats


Vexs

100% agree, all the instrumentals are very similar. I get it though, it's kind of whats "in" right now, but I would of liked to of seen D Double be a bit more versatile. Disappointed it's only 7 tracks too. Think I prefer Jammers - Monumental, although it also is similar across the album with the beats. He atleast switches up the flow a little more.


d_double_e_bot

Oooahh ooooaaah


Keyfatal

Yeah its a bit of a shame. But I can still enjoy that bluku bluku song : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7nTDcUk7wk
