Elijah & Skilliam are at the forefront of a new wave of Grime artists, with their own Butterz imprint and events pushing and progressing the new Grime sound.
For those of you haven't experienced a Butterz night, every event is like a carnival, gone are the days of just a dark room, everyone eyes down. In recent years it felt like Grime had somehow lost it's way and become stagnant, with little setting every artist apart. Then Butterz came along. The vibe of the night was the most important thing on the agenda, with the boys injecting some fun into the Grime scene. This is reflected on the artists who are now part of the Butterz roster, with Royal-T and Champion releasing upbeat tunes with the dancefloor in mind, and the multi-talented Swindle showcasing that the scene has definitely come a long way musically.
And this Saturday the mighty Butterz crew will be celebrating 3 years in the game here at Cable. As it's their 3rd Birthday the boys have put together a very special lineup, with their very own Swindle performing a rare back-to-back set with the one and only, Joker. Also headlining will be one of the most sought after producers at the moment, Lil Silva as well as the full Butterz crew. There will also be some very special guests on the night, and if the past is anything to go by, these will be absolutely massive!
Ahead of their performance this Saturday, Butterz head honchos Elijah & Skilliam have put together a second part to their old skool grime mix they recently put together for us. Some classics in this one, enjoy!
