For one night only, Reuben Dangoor’s ‘Legends of the Scene’ artworks will be on display at a top UK gallery Words: Tenelle Ottley-Matthew. Subeditor: Tenelle Ottley-Matthew   Last month, Reuben Dangoor received huge amounts of attention on Twitter and Instagram when he posted his paintings of iconic Grime MCs as historical figures.

Last year we saw a revival of a genre that has only become a bigger force in 2015 – but what exactly has made it one not to be reckoned with? Words: Simone Wright, Subeditor: Cerys Kenneally   “If you see man driving a German whip, blacked out windows, leaning back/See man driving a German whip, look like a baller, p’s and that,” was one of the most recognised choruses in music last year, courtesy of Meridian Dan. On the same day as German Whip’s release, Skepta and JME debuted their video for the ubiquitous “That’s Not Me”. Both songs were well received nationwide on urban and renowned radio stations, hinting that the MCs hailing from Tottenham were leading a resurgence of grime. Undeniably, grime is something that cannot be tamed. It’s a local genre, which draws influences f
