Grime ebook round-up: extracts, interviews, reviews, audio

My £1.99 ebook Stand Up Tall: Dizzee Rascal and the Birth of Grime came out as a Kindle Single on Amazon UK and Amazon US a month ago, and I've been overwhelmed by the response (thanks!). I'll remind everyone here that if you don't have a Kindle, there are free, easy-to-use Kindle Reader apps for PC/Mac/iPhone/Android/iPad at those links above.

Here's some of the coverage that followed:

*As a taster, an exclusive book excerpt in The Guardian.

*A thoroughly enjoyable round-table pub discussion I did with Mr Beatnick and Tom Lea for FACT Magazine about grime, Dizzee, and the legacy of 2003.

*An NME piece in which I was asked to tell the story of grime via 5 essential grime YouTube videos.

*A 10 minute interview for the BBC World Service in which I tried to explain grime and its unique London geography, sound and politics to the whole world:

There's also an interview I did with east London local newspaper The Wharf about what grime meant to the area; a decent-sized review in Dummy Mag; another review from the Grime Princess; a great US perspective on Dizzee in this review on Woke Up Late; and selected in Dazed and Confused's books of the week. Get the ebook and let me know what you think.
