Grime is pretty much dead now is what I hear...but here's an interesting article from 2004.http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/partner s-in-grime-570429.html
About halfway down it talks about how it got started on the Original playstation with a game called Music 2000.
I've heard in the past that gameboy had a game kind of like that....it's all just crude midi....
I still prefer the sounds of Wiley....allot of people thought he was using a nintendo system but he was using Music 2000 just dumbing it down a bunch.
I've seen people mod old Atari systems and make music with them....one of the first midi systems was based around an Atari computer, we're talking green and black screen...that you hooked up to a special atari sequencer and picked the notes with a small keyboard on the screen.
Sorry but this current crop of "gameboy music" seems like shit to me.
