riley's birthday set with general courts, vision crew, faultsz, streema & deecee at balamii

Balamii is a broadcasting platform based in Peckham South East London founded by James Browning. It hosts five two hour sets a day from Tuesday to Saturday varying from Jazz/Afro Funk to 2-step Garage and Grime.

I witnessed a Grime set from the Vision Crew and other artists all from around the South East London Lewisham Borough.  Back to back spitting in a small low lit room with two decks, a mixer and a wall covered in polaroids of artists and Dj's, it was very reminiscent of the early scene of pirate radio when Grime was first emerging.

It was great to be surrounded by so many up and coming youth emcee's and capturing their expressions of what is more than just a hobby for some. Radio has always been a cornerstone of Grime and is becoming more mainstream now as one of the best platforms to promote independent artists. Stations like Radar, Rinse and Balamii have paved way for the new generation of Grime with artists such as AJ Tracey, Jammz, Novelist and YGG all acclaiming international success due to their radio sets and freestyle videos.
