Dummy Mix 535 // Oblig

A fire-paced blend from the man keeping grime fresh in London, Oblig

Those close to the grime scene will know that Oblig is something of an unsung hero. A born and bred West Londoner, the DJ upped sticks to New York a few years ago, where he worked diligently carving out a grime scene there via his own Low Life event series in Manhattan, bringing out UK artists like AJ Tracey and Sir Spyro.

Since returning to his native city, Oblig has worked with a hitlist of MCs, becoming a selector firmly in demand. He’s just been announced as a resident on Rinse, recently played at Wiley’s birthday bash (which the man himself didn’t turn up for, although Skepta did), as well as throwing a birthday takeover for Keep Hush which saw Bomma B, Slimzee, Manga and Jon E Clayface pass through. Add to the fact he’s a resident on Pyro Radio, as well as putting together lineups for Just Jam, plus a SXSW appearance planned for next month, and it’s fair to say he’s a busy guy.

With some special dubs and plenty of cameos from MCs you’ll know, Oblig’s Dummy Mix is a fire-paced blend of grime, drill, US rap and neck-snapping instrumentals.
