GRM Daily Rated Awards 2018: Winners Revealed!


The KA and GRM Daily Rated Awards 2018 saw Not3s scoop up the award for Artist of the Year and jointly win Track of the Year with AJ Tracey. Grime legend D Double E was rightfully hailed as this year’s Legacy Award winner.

Artists and fans gathered at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith for the fourth edition of GRM’s Rated Awards, presented by broadcaster, Julie Adenuga, and comedian, Mo Gilligan.

The award show, which will be shown on television on Channel 4 on Friday, September 7 at 11.05pm, saw BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ, Charlie Sloth, take home the award for DJ of the Year for the fourth year running since the show first began back in 2014. Steel Banglez and Michael Dapaah won their awards for the second year in a row for Producer of the Year and Personality of the Year.

Giggs opened up the show with his performance of ‘Swingin In The Whip’ where he bizarrely kicked off by sitting down on a rocking chair under a tartan blanket. However, always a good opening act, Giggs hyped the crowds as usual.

Ambush, Chip, and Skepta performed their latest release, ‘Jumpy (Remix)’ shortly after and other performances were had by Kojo Funds, Ray Blk, Not3s and AJ Tracey. Legacy Award winner D Double E ended the show with a bang showcasing an energetic, 20-minute performance joined by Footsie and Ghetts.

Award presenters included Maya Jama, Manny Norte, Vee Brown and Love Island couple, Kaz and Josh. Lethal Bizzle presented D Double E with his award.
