There’s no questioning why D Double E has earned the title of the greatest grime MC of all time. The East London native counts Dizzee Rascal and Skepta as fans while he pushes boundaries within the UK music underground. So it’s understandable if you’re feeling pretty gutted that you missed his recent tour down under.
However, our friends at Astral People are doing everything in their power to make you feel like you were there. Sending photographer, Alex Johnstone, to join D Double on his Sydney adventures. Check out the gallery above to not only get behind the scenes access to his recent gig, but also take a trip to the iconic Opera House and Bondi Beach with the man himself, as he poses for the camera.
You can also catch D Double E featured as part of our photographic exploration of London’s grime scene in ACCLAIM’s Issue 35 – Rebirth, out now.
