We started the week with some Lethal Bizzle, now let’s finish it off by taking you back to the early beginnings of the grime scene and what Mr. Dench himself was up to 15 years ago!
Oi, who’s that…? Lethal Bizzle, Ozzie B, Neeko – that’s who! And they are the More Fire Crew!
The beat’s dark, the lyricists are heavyweight. You guessed it, this track’s heavy!
Way back when, well 26 September 2005 if we’re being exact, Dash ‘n’ Verve came into being as a radio show. Sadly for you guys we don’t have the recordings of that show, but we did find the playlists for every show we did.
Because it’s just not possible to recreate the wonder and energy of these shows as they happened, we’re going to compile YouTube playlists featuring all of the music played. You can listen in and if you like subscribe to the YouTube channel to get a sublime Sunday playlist to stick on in the background whilst you have your weekly roast.
So without further ado, here it is, the inaugural Dash ‘n’ Verve show.

Been a while ain’t it!? But it’s summer so we’ve been sitting out, sipping cider and enjoying the sunshine. Tonight though, we’re heading inside for the BBC Prom 37, the Grime Symphony presented by 1Xtra.
The line up consists of none other than Stormzy, Wretch 32, Little Simz, Fekky, Krept & Konan, Chip and Lethal Bizzle dropping their biggest chart slammers over the top of an orchestral back drop courtesy of the Metropole Orkest (conducted by Jules Buckley).
If this one drops, it’s going off! Heck, it’s going off regardless.
