Documentary: British Asian Sound Systems

Call it Bhangra managements: 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 where announced all through the audible soundscapes of incredible music and the vital heart of youth nightlife.
