Then download lots of sets from places like...
as grime really florashes in live sets in raves and on radio really.
grime isn't in that good a state right now. Most of the stuff released this year has been pretty poor but there's been a few amazing releases.
For this reason I reckon you should stick to some older stuff. The thing with Grime though is you're not going to find another Boy in Da Corner. Consistently amazing albums like that just don't exist. The best moments in grime are ephemeral radio sets of hype reloads in the dance, things that are hard to recreat on a recorded track.
That said all these releases are pretty fucking awesome, they may have a few duff tracks and lack the cohesive vision of Dizzee in his prime but at their best they represent some of the most amazing music ever made.
VA - Run the Road Vol 1 & 2
Ruff Sqwad - Guns & Roses Vol 1 & 2
Eskiboy (Wiley) - Best of Tunnel Vision
Wiley - Race Against Time

VA - Destruction Vol. 1 (the Classics)
Roll Deep - Rules & Regulations

Most of those you can buy here:
Some you can download for free. I'll post links to those and some of my fave radio sets in a bit.
Logan's last ever show on Rinse. Flowdan, Skepta, Scratchy, Footsie, Slix, Trim and loads more going on sick for 90 minutes. Skip the first 15 minutes if you don't want to hear a load of logan specials getting wheeled up about 50 times.
Jammer's Birthday, basically every good MC in grime on this. My favourite bit is Esco and Dizzee over Ice Rink.
