I was out in New York this past weekend for a music conference, which will probably be my last magazine piece.

I have no interest in being a journalist, and after spending a weekend with people who want are dedicated and really want to write about different music I thought it would be a good time to just stop writing for shit I don't even read myself. Stuff might pop up from time to time over at Fact but apart from that, I will be only be writing here from now on, hopefully more often then I have been as well! I only really want to write about Grime and fried chicken really.

The conference itself was quite interesting, there was a bunch of DJs and producers from all over the world, and it made me realize that nobody is really selling loads of CDs or records anywhere in the world. Busy P a massive electro DJ said vinyl on his label sells around 2,000 copies. The future of the music is really not in the sales of the audio, it is around associated product and live shows. The sooner the Grime scene realizes this the better. Music is free, in some of the countries the people were from, it was taboo to actually pay for music.

It is really weird describing how Grime is in England to people that have no knowledge of how things work are out here. Imagine someone telling you there's no club scene, not much music sold and police don't allow concerts. What would you think of that scene? With all of those failures it still is the breeding ground for exciting new artists and producers that eventually get signed like Chipmunk or go on to be credible independent artists like JME.

I also got the opportunity to interview former RWD Mag Editor (when it was good) Matt Mason as well, hopefully that will be up later on in the week!

Before I go, while I was away I missed the fortnightly Butterz show so Sir Spyro stood in for me, and went b2b with Skilliam. Download that here!


My journalism skills have been in question the last few weeks, so I thought I'd put them to the test at Skepta's launch party by asking him a couple of questions while he was performing.


My mate Dane also caught up with Frisco, he couldnt even finish the verse from 'Too Many Man" as it was too hype. Big up Frisco each and every.

Not sure why the footage went sideways for a bit of it, but I couldnt fix it!

First of many blogs this week, bringing Butterz back to its best.

Hold tight

Big up everyone that locks in live, maximum respect to you all. These shows normally air 1-3am, and I understand how long it is to stay up late. You guys get much props for showing us support via the Rinse FM MSN, phone line and Grimeforum. It is nice to catch some people into the sounds as far as New Zealand and Australia as well, big up the worldwide gang!

We have been wanting to do a 100% instrumental show for ages, and tonight felt like the right time to draw for them after non stop talk of Wiley, Bashy and Skepta albums over the past fortnight.

Stop filling up your CDs with lyrics about how great an MC you are. There's way too many lyrics directed at MCs, I am not an MC so I can't relate.

Write about something in particular, you know, like a concept, a story maybe.




Meet my new arch enemy, Andrew Flintoff. Here's a little article in The Sun about him blaming rap and immigration for the ills of society.

At 2.55am I called up Talksport to balance some of their callers racist views. Here is the audio, its pretty short. The caller after me was basically how the rest of the people were going on.
