    is it coursework that goes towards your final grade?

    if so, do another genre as there will be a lot more academic material to draw from.

    dont mean this in a bad way, just suggesting a way to ensure you get the best mark if it matters

    Talk about Moral Panics. I did something similar to this at uni on So Solid Crew.

    Political
    Gun/Knife crime and politicians
    Politics within the genre. (Do a handful of giants run the scene and only bring ins make it? Logan vs Pirate DJs)

    Social
    Gun/Knife crime and Form 696
    Middle England's (i.e Daily Mail) perception of Grime
    Inner city perception of Grime

    Economic
    Can't think of anything at the moment. Maybe talk about the fact that it not a lucrative genre and thousands rather than tens of thousands are what successful CD sales are based on.

    Technologic
    Use of cubase/Fruity etc. making it more accessible to fans and others to start getting involved themselves.
    Blogs
    Podcasts
    Internet radio
    Grime Forum

    i did my SSI on grime, it would be easier for you to do it on another genre as eagle said, but it's not impossible because i got a distinction for mine.

    i wrote about the social background that the genre comes from, the continuous bashing of the genre by the tabloids etc.

    For economic, you could state how the scene is ripped off by sites like PG. Then state how many downloads P moneys Latest Cd had. You could also mention how people need to find a day job to support this hobby of theirs etc.

    would make sense to draw on how the hiphop scene is in american culture and relate it back due to there being a lot more published material on that topic

    You wanna do Porter's 5 forces as well as a PEST analysis. You could even make it a PESTLE analysis and throw in a bit of Legal and Environmental issues

    Ive done one before to. there are way easier genres to write on, but i already had a solid grade in the class so it didnt really matter what i got on it. i think i ended up with like a c or b on it. connected it with life in east london and shit.

    lol i was gonna say that

    never heard of a PEST analysis for a genre of music though

    don't think porters 5 forces would really apply tbh

    actually could do:

    Bargaining power of customers : Fans and how we perceive new releases "this is shit he's trying to go mainstream"
    Bargaining power of suppliers: UK Record Shop and how they chokehold the game etc
    Threat of new entrants: Funky House taking grimes sales etc
    Threat of substitute products: Hip hop/road rap

    Competitive rivalry within the industry: fair to low

    Political, id go with form 696, the media's representation of grime music and its audience, and the radio 1 play list is a hot topic, im not sure if your doing grime culture and its music or just grime music, but if culture you could talk about too many man not charting high and one of the reasons was it wasn't on the radio 1 play list.

    Social, you could talk about the dominance of the target market that is youth, that American music has had, especially in rap and hip hop, over the last decade or two.

    Economics is a tough one, id focus on the institutions behind mainstream music and the amount of new record lables/shops that have been set up specifically for producing and selling grime music, where the financial backing for them comes from and the institutions response to grime creating more of a name for its self, such as signing grime artists and using them for other music genres.

    All i can think of, if i think of anymore il post.

    motherfucker il show you pussy footin
    il kick a bitch in the cunt till it makes her queef
    and sounds like fucking a whoopie cushion
