I haven't really been listening to grime recently. Well, not as much as usual. Leaving the house to earn money has been the main reason but, regardless of the motives for my recent lack of grime-listening, I actually feel better for it.
Grime is like cigarettes. A quick fix to function, a top-up that, once taken, you can indulge in too often.
It was my birthday yesterday so I didn't catch Logan Sama's show last night. I was getting free drinks and all but it still sounds like I missed out, Logan handing over a 20-pack-of-Superkings-bag-of-hype-injection by playing the biggest grime vocals from '09 in this mix.
Listen to it.

I believe it's Logan's birthday today. I'm a slightly bitter about this. I mean, not in a horrible way, but just that it's another 364-day wait for mine. Then again it's good not to dwell on your age after a certain point in life, so Happy Birthday Logan.
I'm gonna check the mix now. Probably with a cigarette.
