Urban Development is heading to the seaside!
That's right! We're heading to The Great Escape this weekend (starting Thursday June 14) in Brighton and we're bringing some friends along with us. Disrupt, GRM Daily and British Underground will be helping us talk Grime 2.0 once again at The Old Court Room. Scene stalwarts Skepta and JME (Boy Better Know) are achieving their best chart positions in years, young MCs Stormzy and Novelist are hotly tipped in 2015 while Kanye West and Drake tip their hats to the sound. We'll be discussing the past, present and future of this resilient and influential underground genre.
Panelists for this special edition are journalist and Grime connoisseur Laura 'Hyperfrank' Bronson, production outfit Heavytrackerz, Disrupt Ltd founder Matt 'Sketchy' Thorne and Island Records' Alex Boateng. You can also join us straight after at The Globe on Middle Street for drinks and networking opportunities so bring those business cards.
If you're coming along (of course we strongly advise that you do) all you've got to do is RSVP via the British Underground website. It's that simple!
For more information, head over to the British Underground website. If you'd like more details on The Great Escape, their official website is over here. If you'll be attending at any point over the weekend, don't forget to give us a shout on Twitter.
