Grime's No.1 DJ Logan Sama waxes lyrical

Logan Sama from Butterz on Vimeo.

I first met Logan, four or so years ago, when doing a piece for Metro on pirate radio and Rinse FM - he was very much at the beginning of his career and earning his stripes. He's matured into a fine radio and club DJ, who in this interview speaks ALOT of sense (check his RWD column for hard hitting truths) such as what he has to say about buying music, vinyl, the art and craft of DJing and how this scene is rooted in vinyl and dubplate culture. If we don't maintain the scene's roots and culture, it will eventually wither.

Big up to Elijah Butterz for the headz up, he's another passionate grime fan, who's committed to supporting the scene. You can find his inside reporting on grime and exclusive video interviews here. Respect
