Solomon Rose, more widely known as the London Grime turned Dubstep producer extraordinaire Silkie, is no new jack to the urban music scene. Around 1999 when Silkie was 13 years of age, he started listening to his sister’s Garage collection, then going to underaged raves just as the scene was changing to Grime.
Anti Social Entertainment was formed during the movement from Grime to new musical thinking. A group of friends namely Silkie, Quest, Harry Craze, Razor Rekta, Jay 5ive and later on Mizz Beats banded together mainly for the love of music.
