Grime mixed with Indie
22 Grand Job remixed by Lethal Bizzle
Indie backing but rap fronting
Godfather of indie at present is Statik who made the compilation - Grindie Volume 1
A mix between Grime
Rather self explanatory.
Grime being an underground genre largley established in the early 2000's, topped of with a helping of Indie
After the huge Indie
boom over the past few years some clever soles decided to mix the two genres to become Grindie.
One of the more 'mainstream' bands that front this move would british(oh yes!) band Hadouken!
Contraversially though i must admit.
Some critics believe Hadouken!
are the best new comer of 2007 in the new music scene and others believe they are the worst mixed-genre band. Ever. Claiming that James, the front guy has sold out his roots as being an original Grime act.
This was formally brought to the lovers and haters of Hadouken!
s attention in an issue of NME
(an ace new music magazine in England) with a whole article devoted to the argument. One side lovers. Otherside haters.
In the issue of NME
which followed the debate James appeared saying that he hasnt sold anyone out and that his music is music.
Love it and buy the tracks.
Hate it and go back and listen to bloody Razorlight
A backing track some would consider as 'rock' or 'acoustic' if naive, but is widely known as 'indie', with a rap or hiphop singer or rapper, known as 'grime'.
Although you may think that this type of music would appeal to both 'chavs', and 'emo/scene' people, it tends to be liked by another breed of people, 'indie kids see indie
The word comes from the equation
grime + Indie = Grindie
Jamie T, Arctic Monkeys, Lily Allen, The streets, many more are examples of grindie music
