Appropriately labelled "Pirate Radio Anthem", "D.T.I" is one of grime's earliest tracks to earn the description of legendary. An essential record for any self-respecting DJ playing raves or radio during that era, Skepta's production talents were slightly more hard-hitting than the Eski-influenced or sinogrime rhythms floating around, and suited aggressive emcees to a tee. With Konnichiwa around the corner, it's a touch that the Department of Trade & Industry didn't manage to cut off his signals back in the day. —Frankie Mines
