Chipmunk is a member of the ‘Circular Movements’ collective of grime artists which consists of Chpimunk, Shalo and Hits. He is one of the hottest properties within the current grime scene, and not without reason. Earlier this year he showcased his impressive freestyling on BBC Radio 1Extra, leaving other MCs in awe at such a young (he is only 16) and obviously rich talent. His music is classic grime: 2-step beats with dark basslines and influences from hip-hop, raggae, garage and dancehall. His lyrics are fast paced raps relating to his experiences of growing up in north london, but are of a calibre rarely seen.

Having taken the music scene by surprise, it remains to be seen whether Chipmunk can continue developing and become a major name in 2008. All the signs, however, point to a bright future for the new-comer.
