you're being ironic, right?

Grim isn't really anything - it's a name concocted by the Werk Discs label to showcase new artists.

BUT....

It could become a catch-all term for idm-orientated artists, or ex-breakcore fanatics, or middle class laptop boffins who are now making complex/detailed grime tunes.

Time will tell :wink:

Yea this Grim thing is getting out of hand. I know of at least one or two people who enjoy the dubstep and/or grime sound and have got very confused about some 'new genre' called Grim(m).

It's about 4 or 5 records on one label that are slightly derivative of the sublow sound. That's it. End of.

Yeah true. There're several people to blame for this:

Werk Discs (obviously)

Sam Atki2 and Dubway for using the term 'Grim' on their Ruffnek Discotek flyers.

Me for encouraging them all.

i think it's useful because there are lots of people post-Rephlex comps mixing electronica/breakcore/experimental ideas with grime and dubstep production ideas, that have few direct ties to either of the existing dubstep or grime communities. Grimm is useful to describe these new movements.

Phew, someone who actually sees it the way I do. From my pseudo-journalistic viewpoint, Grim is indeed a useful term.

I just wish I could come up with a better euphemism....

didn't Reynolds coin it? my advice is to stay away from coining genre names, artists only end up resenting you (i witnessed Ministry mag try to invent 'disco-hop' once on the basis of one Deadly Avenger 12". doh!).

Reynolds was first to use the term 'Grimm' a year so back, although he was actually referring to dubstep in general:

"Grimm, that’s what I’m going to call the darkdubstep/Croydon t'ing from now onwards. So you have Grime and its taciturn brother Grimm."

Didn't really catch on though, did it :roll:

Would this qualify?


that's practically breakcore, mate! mind you, it could fit the Grim Dubs concept quite well - you should send 'em a demo!
