Roll Deep's "In at the Deep End" had few tracks that would be considered grime (because of alternative instrumentation, such as
guitars and keyboards, and the speed of the music), and would be classified as closer to Hip hop. However, producers Wileyand Maniachave heavily influenced their latest album, Rules and Regulations, with the majority of the tracks following the rules of Grime and using dark sounding synthesizersand drum machines for instrumentation.
