D Double E is one of the original pioneers of ‘Grime’. As an East London native, D Double E had the rapidly evolving new music scene on his doorstep. Having already cut his teeth as a Jungle and Garage MC, D Double took to this sound instantly.
With his unique sound, flow and signature adlibs D Double stood out from his peers and in a category of his own. As part of N.A.S.T.Y Crew (one of the first known collectives of ‘grime’ artists) then his own group, Newham Generals, D Double made a big impact in the scene.
After years of pirate radio sets, raves and mixtapes D Double had a reputation that proceeded him. Often referred to as ‘your favourite MC’s favourite MC’ and classed as ‘the greatest of all time’ by Skepta. D Double E has finally begun to receive the mainstream attention he deserves in recent years. D Double has his own record label, Bluku Music and is a prominent figure in the music scene both here at home and abroad.
Together with Berlin based cultural platform 3’Hi we bring you the D Double E SS19 tour consisting of 7 shows throughout Europe with one special show in New York.
Last Thursday D Double performed to a home town crowd at London’s Borderline. As well as the man himself the show also featured notable MCs and DJs such as Jammer, Chipmunk, Frisco, Mez and Grandmixxer.
