Logan Sama’S Grime Ministry
Hey! It's that time again where I update you with what's been going on in the world of grime and with myself. So let's get straight into it! On my Monday night Kiss FM show this month, we've seen some big guests like Ruff Sqwad, Discarda, MIK, Marger, G Fam, StayFresh Jammer and the Lord Of The Mics crew and more all passing through and recording massive 'After Hours' sessions, all of which you can see on my YouTube channel.
We've also seen some great releases on both the instrumental and vocal side of grime from the above names, plus releases from Preditah, Faze Miyake, J Sweet, Spooky's 'Ghost House' records plus more. It really is a very healthy time. Speaking of producers, we have given thirty producers the chance to have their music released through the Discarda 'Rhyme On Remix' competition. We've accepted remixes from all over the world and put them up for a public vote (still on-going over on my blog) with the top thirty getting released. Of course, the two original mixes by Rude Kid and Preditah are both out now and still do massive things in the clubs, so check those out.
Grime out in the clubs is still going great. The Lord Of The Mics tour kicks off next month with four dates around the UK. The launch party at Arcadia in London was MASSIVE! Over 2,000 ravers came together to party with me, Jammer, Boy Better Know, Newham Generals and OGz. Be sure to grab your tickets before they sell out!
This month, I've been enjoying a lot of different music. Here are just a few instrumentals you will have heard me play in 'After Hours' sets and out in clubs:
K1 - 'Courvoisier'
Preditah - 'Vinyls'
Faze Miyake - 'Reptile'
Depth Charge - 'Comply'
Davinche - 'Reset'
Swifta Beater - 'Numb'
Plastician - 'PlasBar'
Teddy Music - 'Ringworm'
Darq E Freaker - 'Mystic'
DOK - 'Cardio'
As everyone knows, I love two main things: grime and video games! It's been a sick year so far for gaming. I have to big up Sony for throwing a sick launch party for the new PS Vita console and I love playing Uncharted, FIFA and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on mine! Next month is going to be super hype because, after two years of waiting, Street Fighter X Tekken is finally released. I’m buying that the day it comes out, and I look forward to playing some of you online on XBox Live. Look out for some coverage of a wicked launch event with some of the best players in the UK all fighting it out on the game.
If you’re looking to come out and party with me in the coming weeks, you can catch me at 'Sticky' (the rave) and Stormin's birthday bash on March 3 at Scala, and 'Some Night' on March 9 at Proud 2 – both of which are in the capital. Then I'll be at the Leeds Student Union on March 10 and Air in Birmingham on March 16 for the 'High Frequency Presents: Lord Of The Mics' shows, all before heading to Newmarket on March 17 to play 'Raw' at Innocence and wrapping the month off back in London on March 30 at Cable for the Licked Beatz second birthday party. I hope to see you there!
