Joining the Dots: A Huck podcast

Hattie Collins

Season 1, Ep. 2

Writer and journalist Hattie Collins is the documenter-in-chief of the Grime generation. For fifteen years she had a ringside seat as the young emcees and producers of East London created a culture in their own image — and she remains locked in tight to the music’s evolution. In 2016 she published Grime’s first and definitive oral history. This Is Grime told the story of the most dynamic subculture since Punk from the inside out. As the scene goes global, Don Letts sits down with Hattie to reason with the rise and mutation of UK music’s most powerful force.
