Grime’s been enjoying a resurgence as of late in the mainstream, with Skepta and Stormzy topping charts and 1Xtra putting on a grime symphony at this year’s BBC Proms.
 
Now Hollywood composer David Arnold — who’s best known for scoring five James Bond films, as well as Independence Day and Godzilla, is locking horns with the grime legend and rising vocalist Sinead Harnett, who has appeared on Disclosure, Rudimental and Wiley cuts.

As part of the #LiveColourful LIVE campaign, the trio are set to produce a unique grime-orchestral sound — with the project labelled ‘Grime: A Moment In Time’.

Bizzle has commented: “The track is a celebration of my journey and bringing together two worlds - grime and orchestra. Throw the rulebook out, music has no boundaries.”

“There are no rules”, David Arnold went on to explain. “Violins, beats, lyrics, rhythms, brass sections, distortion, guitars, samples…it’s all music, if it sounds good then it is good. There's no reason why Grime can’t meet Orchestra and this track is proof of how music knows no bounds."

While Sinead Harnett stressed the importance of the genre, stating, “I grew up listening to grime. It still resonates today in exactly the same euphoric way which is why its resurgence is so important and wicked! Having gone to the grime proms this year I can't stress enough how fitting a live orchestra is for tunes like 'Pow'. Live strings encourages grime music to sound as powerful as it deserves to."

The trio will write and record the song together, which will be released as a free download in the near future.

They’ll then perform it at a one-off event at One Mayfair on Tuesday 13th October. To be in with the chance of getting your hands on a ticket, head here
