Classical music gets grimey
1Xtra and Radio 3 are poised to start work on a 70-minute musical suite of grime, hip hop and classical music.
Urban Classic, which goes out on 1Xtra and Radio 3 next year, brings together grime producer DaVinChe, jazz musician Jason Yarde and classical conductor Charles Hazlewood, who will lead the BBC concert orchestra (CO) alongside well-known artists from the UK’s grime scene.
The music will be performed live for an audience on February 16 at the Hackney Empire and will feature London MCs Bruza, Tor, Pase, Purple and beatboxer Faith SFX, alongside the concert orchestra, with dj sets from 1Xtra's Semtex and Cameo.
The collective of artists will meet for the first time next week and will hold workshops throughout January and February to refine the musical score and performance. In the process, DaVinChe and Jason Yarde, both classically-trained, will compose and arrange the piece of music for the BBC CO to perform.
1Xtra’s programmes editor Willber Willberforce said the project would push the UK's emerging grime scene forward. ‘It will be a first for our listeners. Each organisation and individual will bring together their unique talents and knowledge to create something very special.’
Radio 3 controller Roger Wright added that the partnership would help ‘break down the barrier between styles of music’.
Highlights from the event will go out simultaneously on 1Xtra Live and Radio 3's Mixing It of February 18.

So I'm helping some designer friends with a hip hop website they're putting together, and they want to have a section on grime. I'm the only person they know who listens to the stuff, as here in the US hardly anyone has even heard of it. As much as all the UK kids I talk to insist it's over, here it's just beginning, and I'd like to help my friends out. Compared to people here, I know lots about grime, and compared to people in the UK, I know shit I'm sure. Obviously we don't even have an active scene here. I have some questions, I need clarification on a few things, and I need input from whomever wants to help a sista out. I'm not trying to be the American Chantelle Fiddy here, hopefully I don't sound like a huge poser.
I can't decipher lots of the slang, and I have some directly music related questions as well. I am trying to find someone who knows lots about grime and is willing to answer a list of questions I'm putting together, which could be e-mailed directly to them, quite quick and painless! I feel like a douche asking these things, but it's got to be done. Please let me know if you can help. I'd greatly appreciate it.

The curiosity is killing me. Shower face, shower cap, shower curtain, all the showering, what is it all? I skeeze up on Prancer's and Fiddy's blogs, and I can't understand half of it because of all the shower talk. Please please enlighten me.
Thank you for your public service. Current Mood: tired
