Co-curated by one of the first cameramen of grime, Roony ‘RiskyRoadz’ Keefe, Grime Stories: from the corner to the mainstream is a brand new, free display that explores the history of grime in East London and the community at its heart.
Grime music emerged almost twenty years ago, and grew from youth clubs and pirate radio stations. Now it is one of the most popular genres in the capital. The Museum of London is spotlighting the locations and people across East London who shaped the grime world.
From grime pioneer Jammer’s basement, the iconic birthplace of one of the most important battle platforms in the UK music scene, to films and footage celebrating grime’s story of Black and working class ingenuity. The Museum of London is allowing people to explore the moments, music and people that took grime from the corner to the mainstream.
