Journalism

From April 2018 to August 2019, I served as the Features Editor of Once Upon A Grime, specialising in longer reads and coordinating song premieres, artist interviews, and guest mixes. I also occasionally write for Genius and the University of Bath’s student magazine Bath Time, and formerly covered music videos for Link Up TV. Feel free to email me new music submissions or event invites.

Once Upon A Grime

Joining the team in December 2017, I devised brand strategy; redesigned the website; curated exclusive content from a whole host of grime MCs, producers and DJs; attended shows, festivals, studio sessions and radio sets on behalf of the brand; and improved its social media presence.

My contributions to the site include interviews with Pinch, Grim Sickers, and J Beatz among others, and premieres from some of the most exciting names in grime right now including Killa P, Jakebob, and K9.

Genius

My featured articles include an exclusive discovery about Kanye West’s unreleased Yeezus 2 project and an insight into Dizzee Rascal’s direct influence on the grime scene. I also coordinated verified annotations from Chip on his Power Up EP and P Money on his Lord of the Mics VI bars, and a lyric premiere of Cadell’s album, LONDON.

I’ve given hundreds of musicians verified Genius accounts so that they can add and annotate their own lyrics, and have directly liaised with artists to ensure that their lyrics on the site are accurate. Past clients include Giggs, AJ Tracey, Dave, Ghetts, Krept & Konan, and Skrillex’s label, OWSLA.

Bath Time

I mostly use the University of Bath’s student magazine as an outlet for reviewing concerts and club nights in Bath and Bristol. My subsequent articles have appeared exclusively in print editions of the magazine around campus.
