Premiere: Durkle Disco Showcases The Best In Bristol Grime On New Mixtape

You need to pay more attention to Bristol.


Bristol's contribution to music is widely held in high regard. The city's role in the birth and growth of trip-hop, drum & bass and dubstep is frequently celebrated, but what many don't realise is that Bristol is consistently turning out first-rate spitters and producers in the grime field. One local label, Durkle Disco, have made it their mission to make sure Bristol is remembered in the grime history books. After a series of surefooted EPs and singles, the label have put together this mixtape of some of Bristol's finest. You may already know a couple of names from the city (Kahn, Grim SickersKoast) but the vast majority of this tape should give you a decent inroad into a scene that's at least as thriving and full of talent as London.

Durkle Disco Mixtape Vol. 1 will be available as a limited run of CDs from their Bandcamp, with each track available digitally, from Nov. 20.
