    Around 2011/12 times I wasn't far off listening exclusively to instros, the producing scene was so healthy imo then.
    Used to rinse this set

    I do listen to more instrumental grime than vocal. I don't listen to a lot of grime like I used to these days as the quality overrall isn't what it was years ago.

    Vocals are good but instrumentals are better right about now

    Yup listen to mostly instrumentals and always have from the beginning maybe an 80/20 split.

    I grew up on hip hop and MCs like Nas, 2Pac, Andre 3000 so it's always been difficult for me to really take most grime MCs seriously lyrically.

    Saying that I still listen to a select group of MCs (more for hype than lyrics) such as Wiley, Trim, Chronik, Big H and D Double E

    Personally I do like listening to instrumental grime and imo the older stuff is better for that. Newer beats seem to be made just for vocal they can't really stand up on their own (obviously there are some exceptions).

    I also find that a lot of my favourite tunes are older beats which have freestyles on them that are not spectacular in skill, but they seem to work well with the beat.

    Purely instrumental grime is alright, but I can't take too much of it. An MC on the set or track makes it more complete for me. Although I can appreciate a good instrumental still.

    I prefer vocals tbh, but I do listen to some instrumentals.

    Usually have them on in the background when playing Playstation, relaxing etc lol.

    Thread reminds me of the first time I played the Functions on a low vinyl beginning to end and near the end when the beat goes nuts oh my diddy and near the end of the Davinche Frontline remix when he went in with the instruments so fucked.>>>>>>>>>>>.

    I can listen to instrumental Grime and do sometimes, but without an MC it's just yet another UK based instrumental genre and doesn't hold my interest so much.

    The MC is supposed to compliment the beat and add a new dimension to the sound of it, rather than spit a thousand metaphors and describe the evolution process to you.

    Yeah I do this more and more now as most of the Grime vocals coming out are terrible.

    Big fan of instrumentals that change ever so slightly near the middle or end, tunes like Devil vs Saltfish etc where it's worth sticking around until the end.
