Roll Deep's Urban Takeover of I Like Music
Roll Deep have been storming through the UK grime scene since their formation in 2002. Headed up by UK grime lord Wiley, the crew have a string of famous past members including chart toppers Dizzee Rascal, Tinchy Stryder amd Skepta. Not that the crew need the efforts of past members to reach the top spot; 2010 has seen the crew burst from the underground and officially dominate the UK charts with their pop-led singles Good Times and Green Light.
I Like Music caught up with Manga, Scratchy and Breeze at Universal Records, their swish major label home. We chat about the grime scene, making tunes for a pop market, what we can expect from their fourth album Winner Stays On and why Roll Deep top trumps, hover boards and plastic chains are a very, very good idea.
"I Like Music because… the world would be very dead without it." BREEZE, ROLL DEEP
"I Like Music because… it's got me lots of free trainers." MANGA, ROLL DEEP
"I Like Music because… I get to express myself once and then hear it forever" SCRATCHY, ROLL DEEP
