It’s 2011, the year you’re finally going to get a job, move out of your parents’ house and just generally get your act together. Of course, you’ll start doing all that in a few weeks, first it’s time to listen to a bit of muzak and get down to the local for a few swifties. Lucky for you, influential duo Elijah and Skilliam are here to help and have assembled a new year mix brimming with a tasty selection of grime tunes from the freshest producers the scene has to offer. Admittedly, a mix comprised solely of grime isn’t something I’d usually tackle but this is surprisingly sick and I listened to the entire thing, twice. It’s not all multiple claps and overused strings and I bet you a whole bag of quavers that Royal T’s remix of ‘It’s Wiley’ will have you bobbing up and down like a rubber duck in a fat man’s bath. Happy new year!
