Noisey is a documentary series from Viceland that features different cities and their music scenes. Hosted by Zach Goldbaum, each episode explores a different city and their unique musical style, focusing on the artists and subcultures that give that city its sound. The series features interviews and footage of both established and up-and-coming artists in the genres of rap, hip hop, punk, grime, and more.

The series' first episode takes place in London, featuring interviews with British MCs Jammer and Kano, both of whom are prominent figures in the grime scene. Throughout the episode, Goldbaum and the artists discuss the culture and history of grime, and how it's evolved over time to become one of the most dominant genres in the UK music scene.

One of the standout moments in the episode is when Jammer takes Goldbaum on a tour of his hometown of Walthamstow, showing him the different places that influenced his music. Jammer also speaks about his experiences growing up in the area, and how grime served as an outlet for him and his friends to express themselves.

Goldbaum also meets up with other grime artists, including Kano, whose 2016 album Made in the Manor is considered a modern classic in the genre. Throughout the episode, Kano speaks candidly about his upbringing and how it shaped his perspective on life, and how his experiences growing up in East London influenced the themes on his album.

The documentary also explores the role that grime has played in British politics and culture, with several interviews with fans and experts in the field. While the genre is often criticized for its explicit and violent lyrics, fans argue that it reflects the realities of growing up in urban areas, and serves as a way for young people to express their frustrations with the world around them.

Overall, Noisey is an engaging and informative series that sheds light on the different musical subcultures around the world. With its focus on the artists and communities that create and sustain these scenes, the show offers a unique perspective on how music can serve as a powerful tool for social commentary and change. Whether you're a fan of grime or punk, or simply interested in learning more about different musical styles, Noisey is a must-watch series that will keep you entertained and informed from start to finish.
