This is our story...

While Joe Nice is the U.S. ambassador for dubstep, many regard Starkey as the ambassador for grime in America, importing and promoting the British hip-hop sound across the pond via Philadelphia since 2005. He was the only American producer chosen for Mary Ann Hobbs’ 2008 “Generation Bass” series on BBC Radio 1 for his efforts in developing and growing the global acceptance of grime.

A producer himself, Starkey has released on labels like Ninja Tune, Planet Mu, Alpha Pup, and many others. He has co-owned Seclusiasis with Dev79 since 2001, and Slit Jockey Records with Gair Dev79 and Aaron El Carnicero since 2005. As a DJ, he’s toured the world for over a decade, and, in the Fall of 2016, he will embark on what he has dubbed the All Grime Tour.

The All Grime Tour will showcase Starkey’s “11 years in the grime scene from both sides of the Atlantic,” including new releases and his forthcoming record with Saturate Records. To kick off the upcoming festivities, he’s crafted a 98-track mix featuring his favorite selections and a bit more.

When putting together this mix, I wanted to showcase some of my favorite grime records over the years, as well as nod to some sounds that maybe stretch the definition of grime; something I’ve always been a fan of with my production.

Without further ado, Starkey and NEST HQ present Grime & Beyond 2016…
