Conceived in 2003, from a garage in North London, Grime was unleashed online on the infamous AXEFM.CO.UK, the first online TV station to bring you the likes of Boy Better Know, Coldblooded, Newham Generals, Beyond The Booth, Chip, Black The Ripper, Big Narstie, Capo Lee, Scope and so much more. 13 years later, we pay homage to the man who made it possible.
The stations founder Axeman Pabz supported the London music scene since 2003 helping to promote UK music to the world. None of his close friends or family or maybe even the man himself were fully aware of the over arching effect his endeavours had created. Pabz, AKA Pablo AKA Paul Stewart, sadly died of cancer in 2015 aged 41, survived by his wife Lisa and three children. Well wishers and fans from around the globe paid homage to the man that helped build a scene.
It was one of Pabz’ last wishes to help the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust and MacMillan Nurses. This charity event has been organised in Pabz’ memory to raise funds and awareness for these two charities.
