Interview: Boylan on Edgem, Solo Stuff & More

Edgem

2015, depending on who you talk to, means different things for Grime. For some, it’s the year that the vocal side of the scene was kicked out of its slumber by hungry young MCs like MicTy and Jammz.

Oil Gang – Slicker Than the Average Label

Oil Gang

The chances are that if you ask any Grime fan about particular labels that they rate, that Oil Gang would be one of the names on most people’s lists. The reason for that? Easy, they push out sick instrumentals from a who’s who of producers including Spooky, JT The Goon, Darq E Freaker, and more. Oil Gang also have a hand in running Boxed, one of the most successful grime nights in effect at the moment, so already know that I had a tonne of questions, which, thankfully, Simon from Oil Gang was happy to answer.  Continue reading
