Hattie Collins - This is Grime
Hattie Collins is a journalist and author. She’s the Music Editor of i-D Magazine and her book ‘This Is Grime’, featuring images by award-winning photographer Olivia Rose, is an oral and visual history of grime music.
The book weaves together extensive interviews with originators like Dizzee Rascal, Kano and Wiley as well as some of the more recent artists such as Stormzy and Novelist – who talk about how the form is evolving.
In this episode of the MTF Podcast, Hattie discusses the political, technological, geographic, cultural and social aspects of grime, and does so in a way that not only opens up new insights for fans, but also makes it accessible to newcomers.
