    Default Estonian grime

    I was embarrassed to make this thread until I saw the scottish grime thread. To make a long story short, Estonian DJs Wazar and Shromik have been doing bits for years now, Killa P, Lady Leshurr and Virus Syndicate have been here, Killa P actually quite a few times. Give those tunes below a listen, they're actually good. The one on top was released today, it reminds me of some Jammz beats.

    I've got the full version of the last one. But now... Estonian MCs have discovered grime. First there's this track which is quite decent:

    But there's also this cypher... Some of the MCs are actually good but some parts are cringey as fuck (7:00 is just embarrassing; 10:20 chicks rapping, if anyone's interested).

    beats sound like they're gonna go hard but then they just don't take off in my opinion, bit flat when it drops

    that one track sounded more rap/trap to me too

    and the cypher was a bit meh

    it would help if I knew what they were saying tho as I'm more into lyrics

    Well, it seems like nowadays everything that's 140bpm is considered grime. For example, a random "grime" beat I found in my subbox today:

    You didn't miss anything, the lyrics are bad. For example, these are 6 bars from 1:35:

    "Kurb aga tõsi, tõsi aga kurb,
    mõni avab luugid, mõni avab tuld,
    mõni hing uuel ringil ning enda arust mind siia mõnitama tuln'd,
    kanad ja kuked,
    oma rõivaid kannavad uhkelt,
    aeg on need õlid valada tulle"

    They mean roughly something like this:
    "Sad but true, true but sad,
    some open shutters (mouths), some open fire,
    some souls on a new lap, thinking they're here to mock me,
    chicken and cocks (literal hens),
    wear their clothes with pride,
    it's time to pour these oils into fire"

    nah I didn't watch the whole cypher, I skipped through it a bit, but it weren't holding my interest as I was only hearing the flows and they weren't amazing tbf

    "some open mouths, some open fire"

    i agree, but the flow at 18:38 deserved a reload imo, i'll translate the lyrics as well:

    "elan õhtus, nagu vampiir,
    laua peal hüppes, nagu trampliin,
    ülemuse vittu saatsin,
    nüüd passin hommikuti peidus, nagu nahkhiir,
    muidu veri pähe ei valgu,
    tee mis tahad, aga ära ei harju,
    teeb nii, et ükski mära ei karju,
    lambid on kinni, näha pole valgust"

    "i live at night, like a vampire,
    jumping on a table, like a trampoline,
    told my boss to fuck off,
    now i'm hiding at mornings, like a bat,
    otherwise blood doesn't pour to the head,
    do what you want, but don't get used to it,
    doing it so that no mares scream,
    the lights are off, you can't see light"

    I didn't listen to any of these videos, but quite enjoy the lyrics which have been posted.
    I like that instead of 'greeze' or the usual tropes being recycled, these lyrics create images which are quite dark and abstract; not entirely dissimilar from what Monkstar has put out in the last year.

    "read on nii rasked,
    viskan neid nagu Gerd Kanter,
    pohhui kui feilin, sest niikuinii tuleb siitpoolt järgmine katse,
    mõõda kaugust, kohtunik,
    oled kaua platsis olnud vist,
    tunnen nagu mingit ohtu vist,
    tõmba oma perse lohku, lits"

    "bars are so heavy,
    i'm throwing them like Gerd Kanter (an estonian discus thrower),
    i don't care if i fail, because i'll make another attempt anyway,
    measure the distance, referee,
    you've been on the field for a long time, i guess,
    i'm sensing some danger, i guess,
    better make your ass dip, bitch (looooooooool it's definitely out of context here)"

    this one was hard to translate

    Some news. Yesterday I discovered another Estonian grime DJ who's been doing his thing for years - DJ Slin. I found an interview with him as well: https://anditshappening.wordpress.co...ep-ambassador/




    And I just discovered there was a grime rave here in November that I missed... And also, our grime MC's are getting some airtime on radio. The sets below aren't 100% grime though.

    i wanna change my nationality right now, this is going viral in estonia

    "harjumaalt läksime häälega pärnumaa randa,
    galandas, sulandas, (those ain't even words lmao)
    käisime poistega pärnumaa rannas,
    plätud on jalas, täiega palav,
    kus kus kes kes kes,
    käisime poistega pärnumaa rannas,
    plätud on jalas, täiega palav,
    plätud on jalas, ikka on täiega fucking palav,
    kus kus kes kes kes kes kes kes kes kes,
    meie, pärnumaa rannas,
    pärnumaa rannas, täiega palav,
    pükse polegi jalas, plätusid polegi jalas,
    särk on seljas, aga ikka on väljas täiega palav
    kus kus kes kes kes kes, (and so on, cba anymore)
    meie, pärnumaa rannas,
    said sa aru, pärnumaa rannas"

    and my (probably a bit tryhard) translation:

    "we shared a ride from harju county to a beach in pärnu county,
    ????????????????????,
    i went to a beach in pärnu county with my boys,
    flip flops are on, it's really hot,
    where where who who who,
    i went to a beach in pärnu county with my boys,
    flip flops are on, it's still really fucking hot,
    where where who who who who who who who,
    us, in a beach in pärnu county,
    in a beach in pärnu county, really hot,
    no pants on, no flip flops on,
    the shirt is on, but it's still really hot outside,
    where where who who who who who who who where where,
    us, in a beach in pärnu county,
    did you understand, in a beach in pärnu county"

    I know I've been bumping this thread way too much, but it's actually mad how fast grime is spreading here.

    Gringo - Bonafide EP: https://open.spotify.com/album/1gpGn...o7wB?play=true ("Hinnasilt" is probably the best track on the EP)

    The full version of this "masterpiece" was released, too:


    Click here to watch the video on YouTube.

    And there's been at least two grime raves here recently, and there's at least three more to come.
