Novelist x Mumdance - 1 Sec (Video)

Before last year things weren't looking good for grime. The bifurcation between those selling their grans for a spot in the charts and the vanguard of producers keeping a small fire burning with instrumentals left a huge gap to fill. 

Thankfully it was filled, largely owing to German Whip, That's Not Me, and On A Level. But it wasn't only old faces bringing things back. Stormzy planted his flag in the ground with Not That Deep and Where Do You Know Me From. Novelist is another name to watch.

On 1 Sec Mumdance produces one of the sparsest beats in grime's short history, and that's no bad thing. The pair's EP of the same name is now available on iTunes
