They might seem mean and anti-social, but the grime kids just want to be liked. But it seems in their quest for popularity they end up making some rather questionable music. Anything by Tinchy Stryder these days and Dizzee’s ‘Dirtee Disco’ are just some examples. Though Kano’s aims might be quite similar, he just seems to do it a little more classy.
He has just released a new album, ‘Method to the Maadness’, and it has some big tunes with production from the likes of Boys Noize, Hot Chip, Chase & Status and Diplo. He tried the R&B thing a while ago, and now that he is working with some electro producers it’s just infinitely more credible than the embarrassing electro pop shit that everybody else is making.

Here are some tracks from the back catalog. The only thing that is missing from the new record is something produced by Davinche and something with Craig David on it.
