For example when it comes to production outside of London you'd have to be extremely ignorant to overlook or deny the impact that producers like TRC, Preditah and S-X have made within the grime scene over the last few years.
With this in mind I think it's definitely given the up and coming producers outside of London a larger platform in which to stand up against the other leading producers in the UK at the moment.
This brings me onto 18 year old K1_Dubz hailing from Wolverhampton who has been producing since 2009. I first heard his productions towards the end of last year on LOTM3 and also on Spooky's 1Xtra guest mix. His production covers a number of angles, from the fast paced and aggressive to the dark trap like sounds that I hope you will be able to hear from some of his tracks that I have selected below.
2012 is already looking positive for K1 with most recent support coming from Logan Sama and the discussion of a forthcoming EP in the pipeline on Spooky's Ghost House Recordings label.
