IMG_0819

Logan Sama is a name in Grime music that has been bonded to it for over 14 years. He started his successful radio show on Rinse FM in 2002. Moving from Rinse to Kiss FM gave him a chance to bring his radio show to another level. He brought the old veterans and new grime MC’s in his shows such as Wiley, Dizzee, Kano, Skepta, JME, P Money, Ghetts, Tinchy Stryder and many more. Logan is currently focusing on his new website and label 'KeepinItGrimy'. This year KeepinItGrimy had their first release with ‘Integrity’ by JME. Since leaving Kiss, Logan has also been able to focus more on live events such as ‘3310’ in the Bitterzoet in Amsterdam. We had a little chat with Logan when he was in Amsterdam for the ADE special of ‘3310’.
