T H E G R I N D turned 3 yesterday. It has been a funny 3 years. I never thought that T H E G R I N D would turn into what it has, touch so many people, or be such an important part of my life. I, and everyone involved in T H E G R I N D, owe it all to the people who have supported us over the years. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Without you, we are nothing.
This year we're supporting The Moldova Project; a truly wonderful and inspiring charity. If T H E G R I N D has been a positive influence on your life in any way, please consider donating to The Moldova Project's Christmas campaign. Thank you.

THE GRIND's music project, L-space, has a new song out called 'So It Goes'. The lyrics are inspired by Kurt Vonnegut and time travel. For fans of dream pop, Arrival, and trafalmadorians.
T H E G R I N D is working tirelessly on our plans for the next few months. There will be ANNOUNCEMENTS. There will be FICTION. There will be EVENTS. But for now, here is a playlist of the hip hop that powers T H E G R I N D.
