MM (DoubleM) is grime collective reformed from a Birmingham six-member secondary school group called Merky Movements. The young men (Triple B, K-Man, Hulio, Talented T, Slim and Skittles) were always serious about their music, despite their age, and had enviable success at radio and with fans at live shows.
Merky Moments gained the notice & appreciation of the BBC and various trendsetting blogs and seemed set to trail-blaze for the Birmingham grime scene. Sadly, trouble seemed to follow the group and adversity meant each member had to grow up fast. They put their music on standby, but steadily built life experiences which would later influence their lyrics.
During this time Triple B built a studio which produced street hits such as A ‘Wah Do Dem‘ and ‘The Mob Made Me Do It‘ while developing artists on 2000 & Triple Records including Lil Choppa who went on to have a street hit with ‘Straight Up‘ with a remix Featuring Skepta.
The group could not keep away from making music for long and they officially reformed in 2015 with the new name MM. They now consist of Slim, K-Man, Skittles (now SK) and Triple B. Their first offering is Things I Need featuring Ivory Woods (from the 2000 & Triple Records family), which has already gained support from award winning tastemaker blog Link Up TV.
