This is the 17th edition of the Rinse label's compilation series, mixed by Elijah & Skilliam. Their aim for this mix: to showcase the best of grime in 2011. This mix features a majority of instrumental productions, including "Take Off" by Faze Miyake -- widely regarded as the instrumental grime track of the year -- with key vocal contributions from P Money, Blacks, Trim and Wiley. Elijah & Skilliam run their own successful label and club night, "Butterz," with highly acclaimed releases from artists such as P Money, Trim and Terror Danjah. The duo's aim with this 27-track, all grime mix, much like their Rinse show, is to showcase the best of grime so far this year, alongside some of their exclusive dubplates. But unlike most grime mixes, they've aimed it straight at the club with a real beginning, middle and end. There is currently no-one better placed than Elijah & Skilliam to bring you a snapshot of grime music in 2011. Elijah and Skilliam have initiated a lot of what appears here; pushing Trim for "I Am," giving Starkey's beat for "This Aint Me" to Trim and instigating P Money's "Boo You," and Royal-T's remix of Grime's godfather Wiley. The mix is also packed with exclusives, taking in DJ Q's remix of "Woooo" by S-X and Starkey's remix of "Air Bubble," previously only available on vinyl from Butterz. Also included is "Tag," a one-off producer battle by Swindle, Wizzy Wow, Rude Kid and Terror Danjah, an exclusive previewed only a couple of times on their Rinse FM Thursday night/Friday morning show. Other artists include: D.O.K., Slickman, Mr. Mitch, Rossi B & Luca, P Jam, Ruby Lee Ryder, Spooky, Teddy, Bok Bok, Preditah, Treble Clef and TRC.
