CHANNEL 4 - BRITISH ASIAN SOUND SYSTEMS (Feat. Riz Ahmed)
The season finale for Channel 4's and DAZED's series MUSIC NATION. Reviewed as the best music documentary series in years.
In a period stretching from the 90s to the early 00s, a musical and social phenomenon took place within the UK's Asian community. A sound was developed that incorporated the pleasures, pains and politics of second and third generation Asian Brits. From the remixes of classic bhangra tracks to the creation of drum & bass, this period of time encapsulated a movement where cultural identities were announced all through the audible soundscapes of incredible music and the vital heart of youth nightlife.
