    Default Maniac


    Apologies for some of the sound quality. Maniac told me to move, but i'm an idiot, I didn't listen. Props to Matt Benson on the photographs as well. Check out the rest here.

    I met up with him to talk about Grime, and he was fully representing the sound. Didn't sound interested in making other stuff at all, unlike other grime producers who are experimenting with other sounds.

    We spoke briefly about Eskibeat Recordings, Wiley's new label that he was talking about doing last year, but nothing has materialized. There was a lot of confusion of who was in the team, and after a while, it just fizzled out. Wiley is still releasing his stuff on the label, like Grime Wave and She's Glowing which is out on November 24th.

    He also explains how he had to meet in the middle with Stryder when deciding what beats to use for their collaborative project, Stryder vs Maniac, which is out November 10th. It is 6 vocals and 6 instrumentals, a format that hasn't been explored before in grime by an MC & Producer, although Terror Danjah did Hardrive Vol.1 that was half vocal and half instrumental but with various artists. I think this sort of project is the way to go with the mixtape, I never miss an opportunity to say I am not a fan of them in general, but these could work money wise for both MC & Producer and it will ensure a consistent sound throughout the whole CD.

    The lead of song is 'Im rolling' featuring Roachee that is getting battered right now by all the big DJs and a video is coming soon. Instrumentals include What The Rass, Grime Kid and a remix of Little Dees Star In The Making. So DJs and instrumental enthusiasts will get their fix.

    Maniac also has two tunes featured on Plasticians Rinse 06 compilation album. They are both big tunes, and flow together nicely with the rest of the dubstep cd. It makes you ask the question, what is the difference between Grime & Dubstep?

    If you need to check out some of Maniacs previous work get onto iTunes and download these bits.

    Wiley - Bow E3
    Chipmunk - I Am Chipmunk
    Bashy, Ghetto, J2k - Over Here
    Bashy- Kidulthood to Adulthood
    Wiley - Grime Kid
    JME - Shut Ya Mouth


    Big up Maniac for this and apologies once again for the wind.

    define the difference. So I can tell other people. Producers ask me what the difference is.

    Its just names more time i.e

    skream = dubstep
    maniac = grime
